Bristol’s Body Clocks have been announced as the final act of Farmfest’s extravaganza at Marble Factory on 17th March.
For those who don’t know, Farmfest is one of the summer’s most exciting festivals. The unique mix of genre-blending dance music, Bristol live acts and floor-filling DJs mean the festival has been growing year-on-year for over a decade. ‘Farmfest Presents’ aims to bring the “unique blend of unfettered festival frolics and humming party vigour” to the Marble Factory, and they’ve booked the perfect lineup to do just that.
New editions Body Clocks are the perfect way to open up proceedings. The duo, who are part of the Chiverin family, make experimental dance – using loopers, samplers, guitars and keyboards to build expansive layers on stage.
Romare is also bringing his own intriguing live show. Using a three-piece setup that features keys, conga, bass and saxophone, he’ll be recreating the pulsating, intricate songs that litter last year’s Love Songs: Part Two. It’s the first time his new-look lineup will be in Bristol, making this show even more unmissable.
Speaking of the unmissable, the legendary Nightmares On Wax are heading up the bill, promising a set the will encompass the duo’s 25-year career, from early releases right up to last year’s Ground Flood EP. If there’s still some energy left in your feet, Bradley Zero (Rhythm Section label boss, Boiler Room host and NTS broadcaster) will be spinning tunes into the early hours of the morning.
But if downstairs isn’t quite doing it for you, Farmfest have persuaded Marble Factory to open their super secret upstairs room, where Shapes, Late Night Tales, Dropout Disco, Bodyworks and Farmfest Deejays will be holding down the Farmfest Loft Party till 3am.
