The Cambridgeshire festival returns in 2014 with a stellar line-up. This year, they’re celebrating ‘all that rejects the hyper-capitalist dream’, with a huge array of artists and the both legendary and revolutionary new headliner Public Enemy.
The new line-up announcement includes some familiar artists, as well as rising stars on the music scene. As the renowned musical project of New York based DJ Andy Butler, Hercules & Love Affair add Secret Garden Party to their already extensive list of summer appearances, ahead of the upcoming release of their new album The Feast of the Broken Heart.
Frontman, Andy Butler said: “The Secret Garden Party is legendary. I have had the opportunity to take two versions of the Hercules live show to many festivals, but every now and then get to one where the curation/line up is ace, the location is wonderful, and the overall organization and attitude is stellar- this would be the Secret Garden Party.”
The British hip-hop and dubstep group Foreign Beggars also make an appearance, bringing their rap and electronic cross over to the British countryside. With eight albums already released, and recent hints at a sequel to their 2006 mix-tape Bukkake Ski Trip, the group shows no signs of slowing down.
