The Relentless Energy Drink Freeze Festival will this year welcome headline acts The Streets, and Groove Armada present Red Light, plus Zane Lowe, Everything Everything, The Joy Formidable, Beardyman and Summer Camp to the main stage. Taking place from the 28th-29th October, the UK’s biggest ever winter sports and music event will return to Battersea Power Station in London for the fourth consecutive year.
Headliners Groove Armada will be bringing their critically-acclaimed new ‘Red Light’ sound and visuals show to the main stage on the Friday night. The DJs, renowned for floor-fillers such as Paper Romance, Get Down and Superstylin’ will be performing at the Freeze Festival as part of a series of exciting gigs on their current tour.
Also taking to the stage on Friday night is DJ Zane Lowe whose enthusiastic and fast-paced DJ set is guaranteed to raise the roof at this year’s Freeze Festival. Award-winning MC, Beardyman will also be joining the bill; his phenomenal beatbox skills, leftfield sense of humor and incredible musicality have made him an act not to be missed.
Saturday night headliners The Streets, fronted by Mike Skinner, will perform one of their last ever gigs at the event after announcing they will split later this year following the release of their final album back in February. Their mixture of cool beats and unforgettable lyrics will ensure their reputation for explosive live sets continues when they perform at the iconic Battersea Power Station in October.
Supporting them on the main stage on Saturday night is alternative rock band Everything Everything, who rose to fame after featuring in the BBC Sound of 2010 poll. Their scalding post-punk guitars and floor-filling bass lines have also seen them nominated for this year’s Mercury Prize Album of the Year.
Saturday will also see the highly acclaimed three-piece welsh band The Joy Formidable join the bill. The rockers boast a dirty, loud guitar sound mixed with symphonic melodies and are sure to shake things up on stage. Summer Camp, the mysterious boy-girl duo whose music has received widespread critical acclaim, and will also be taking to the Saturday night stage.
In addition to the music, the event will also see the world’s best skiers and snowboarders competing on the specially erected 100m long, 32m high real snow kicker, which for two days becomes an iconic site in London’s skyline. The riders will be hurling themselves down the huge jump, performing their best tricks for world ranking points and a share of the prize purse. Last year saw Brits Paddy Graham in the freestyle skiing and Billy Morgan in snowboarding take victory in the Battle of Britain competition beneath the iconic Battersea Power Station towers.
