London Freeze has today announced the final acts who will be taking to the stage at Battersea Power Station from 30th October – 1st November as part of Freesports on 4 FREEZE sponsored by LG, the UK’s biggest winter sports and music festival.
Aussie/Brit act Pendulum and rapper Example will be warming up the crowd for Friday night headliners Orbital, with Chase & Status and Camden three-piece Ou Est Le Swimming Pool confirmed to appear on the Sunday night.
Hailing from Australia, drum and base act Pendulum will be hitting the London Freeze stage on Friday night. This hugely popular band broke onto the UK scene in 2003, releasing their debut album Hold Your Colour in 2005 to critical acclaim and following this with In Silico in 2006. They are perhaps best known for their hit Propane Nightmares which reached number 9 in the UK Singles Chart. They have been a regular on the summer festival circuit in 2009 and are looking to finish up the festival season with a bang at Freeze.
London-based rapper Example will also be gracing the stage on the opening night of the festival. Example, aka Elliot John Gleave, signed to Mike Skinner’s label The Beats in 2006 and has since been championed by Radio 1 DJs Zane Lowe, Jo Whiley and Pete Tong. Following his departure from The Beats, Example has released a new single, Watch the Sun Come Up, which reached number 20 in the UK Singles Chart.
The dance production duo Chase & Status will be performing on the final night of the festival as part of their first UK tour. Band members Saul Milton and Will Kennard have achieved three number ones in the UK Dance Chart, with their 2009 collaboration with Brit rapper Kano taking them into the UK Singles Chart.
Camden-based band Ou Est Le Swimming Pool complete the Sunday night line up, bringing their quirky brand of electro pop to the Freeze stage. Following performances at this summer’s Bestival and Glastonbury festivals, the band has recently released their debut track Dance the Way I Feel, which will hit the UK charts in early October.
The new acts announced today join the electro pioneers Orbital, legendary American rock band Eagles of Death Metal and the 2009 Mercury Music Prize nominees Friendly Fires in performing at London Freeze. Orbital will be headlining Friday, Eagles of Death Metal on Saturday and Friendly Fires are confirmed for Sunday.
Appearing on the Relentless stage on Friday night will be the electric tunes of Sound of Guns, Master Shorties and The King Blues. The bands dominating the Relentless stage on Saturday will be Cosmo Jarvis, Kissy Sell out and Audio Bully. Finally the Secret Sundance will be performing on the concluding night of the Relentless stage festivities.
