LINEUP:

Formerly known as “Manteca”, The Mantecas are an eight-piece London-based Latin soul & boogaloo band well known for creating a party mood at festivals and gigs everywhere they go, from Glastonbury and Tropical Pressure Festival to The Jazz Café in London. They have a particular ability for bridging the culture gap with any audience getting all crowds up hitting the dance floor in a jive. The Mantecas will blow your mind with a mesmerising mix of salsa, cumbia, funk, Jazz and boogaloo.

King Lagoon’s Flying Swordfish Dance Band, fusing African and South American rhythms and melodies to create a unique style of fresh, powerful, highly energetic and fun music. A full show co-ordinates an evolving palette of smells, lights, ‘exploding-star’ balloons and audience participation in The Battle of Silly String and the crowd surfing flamingo. An original and varied set of music will transport you to a faraway, fantastical place. The creation of aromas through burning oils and incense, pulverising fruit and boiling herbs accompanies the music to create a hypnotic and immersive spectacle.

As always Movimientos DJs will be connecting the dots and keeping the dancefloor moving before and after with a killer blend of Latin and tropical beats!
