NEW LIVE ACTS AND DJs ADDED TO SOUTHPORT


















(From www.blacksheepmag.com News)

Further acts have been added to the bill of this May's Southport weekender, taking place for the first time at the Butlins holiday resort in Minehead, Somerset. Although tickets for the event, from 6th to 8th May, sold out weeks ago, the organisers have announced that a further 1,500 have now been put on sale.

Following several previous appearances, Sounds Of Blackness return to head up the live acts with a full concert. They're joined by Ben Westbeech, Ndambi, Raphael Saadiq, Dexter Wansell, Al Johnson and Naughty By Nature. The DJ line-up, meanwhile, is headlined by Roger Sanchez, delivering a Classic US House set. Other US kingpins include Derrick Carter, Kerri Chandler, DJ Spen and hip-hop pioneer Grandmaster Flash.

The Southport team made the announcement of their move from the venue that gave the event its name, Pontins in Southport, last month. The increased capacity of the new venue has brought scope for even more acts, they say. The live acts and DJs will perform across the usual four rooms of music - The Powerhouse, The Funkbase, The Beat Bar and Connoisseurs Corner - with styles encompassing deep and soulful house, rare groove, funk, jazz, R&B, hip-hop and Afrobeat.

Tickets are available from http//www.southportweekender.co.uk, or on 0844 879 7210/ 01207 549 223
