LINE UP 2019
One of the most respected electronic music producers on the planet, deadmau5 otherwise known as Joel Zimmerman, and his ability to push the boundaries of his talent grows at an equal rate to his fan base. At almost 15 million followers and counting across his combined social media channels, he’s a true superstar of modern times.
Adding to his already lengthy CV (six Grammy nominations, eight studio albums including one Platinum and three Gold-selling, countless worldwide club and festival headline shows), deadmau5 this year made his first foray into the movie business, scoring his first feature, the Jonas Akerlund-directed spy thriller Polar.
We at Electric Park are, understandably, thrilled that in the midst of an unrelenting recording and global festival schedule, deadmau5 has found time to drop in to Jersey to bring his combination of dark, forceful techno and complex, electro sounds to the newly established Festival at Howard Davis Park.
With the roar of their recent sold-out UK arena tour still echoing in their ears and more than one billion streams under their belts, The Kooks will be coming to Electric Park on Saturday 17th August. The band released their fifth studio album ‘Let’s Go Sunshine’ in the summer of 2018, which saw them cement their status as true bastions of British guitar pop. With a legion of new fans The Kooks delivered a career defining show last year at London’s Wembley Arena, whilst pulling some of the biggest crowds across the summer festival circuits.
Hot on the heels of the recent line up announcements for the newest festival to join an ever-increasingly exciting live music scene, including The Kooks and Laid Blak, Electric Park are delighted to announce another huge name on the bill: iconic British rock band 10cc. With over 30 million worldwide record sales, including their timeless classic “I’m Not in Love”, 10cc rose to fame in the 1970s to become one of Britain’s most celebrated bands.
Bristol’s Laid Blak have trailed a unique path through the music jungle and picked up influential friends on the way. They don’t come much bigger these days than this key ally – Ed Sheeran. The red-haired one is a big fan, so much so that he used a section of the band’s earlier signature tune, ‘My Eyes Are Red’, in one of his own album chart busting songs and to close his shows.
