SunSplash Festival takes place on the Turkish Riviera, and the bill for the fifth edition is suitably sunkissed.
Running from June 2-9, SunSplash presents a host of artists in an “unrivalled beach side setting” by the five star Hillside Su Hotel in Antalya. Veteran selector Norman Jay MBE will be bringing a touch of carnival, and can be expected to offer a triumphant survey of dub, soul, reggae and party-orientated beat music. Gilles Peterson, meanwhile, will escape the confines of his BBC Radio 6Music studio for a broad-minded session that could veer anywhere from rare groove to contemporary house. Glasgow’s Koreless will also be showcasing his sleek, lush 2-step/house hybrids.
They’ll be joined by the likes of Kirk Degiorgio, Phil Asher, Rainer Trueby, Zaf Chowdry and Lefto, among others. More major acts will be announced soon – tickets and further information are available here.
