THE ONLY UK FESTIVAL DATE ON THE DE LA SOUL
“25 YEARS OF 3 FEET HIGH AND RISING” TOUR.
YORK'S YO1 FESTIVAL MAY 4TH 2014 / YORK RACECOURSE YO23 1EX / 11.45an TIL CLOSE
YO1 Festival is proud to announce that De La Soul will be playing at the third edition of the festival, taking place on Sunday May 4th in Knavesmire, York.
One of the most artistic and creative hip-hop acts ever; this trio from Long Island have had an unquestionable influence since their debut in 1987. It is 25 years since the release of their world-conquering debut album, 3 Feet High And Rising, which sees De La Soul return to the UK for a run of shows to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their iconic album
SUB FOCUS DJ Set & ID will be headlining the main arena. From hearing one of his tracks for the first time inside a club in 2003 ('Strobe', rewound twice by Andy C at The End) to headlining Glastonbury in 2010 (Saturday night on the fabled Glade stage to a rapturous reception), Nick Douwma's rise through the ranks of underground jungle to become a major player in electronic music has been nothing short of spectacular. Initially known for air-punching, dance floor dismantling drum & bass, Sub Focus has now become synonymous with music that draws from all corners of the electronic landscape, and has come to epitomise the ‘anything goes’ mantra of todays flourishing dance scene
