Devon’s LEMONFEST is pleased to reveal the details of the next addition of acts to its dynamic 2016 line up. It confirms a rock n roll giant as its main stage headliner, a Radio 1/1Xtra/BBC 6Music critically acclaimed reggae star, as well as welcoming back a local legend and securing an array of fresh D&B acts to its renowned drum n bass tent.
LEMONFEST has a great story, and as we enter its seventh successful year, it celebrates running off the back of its own success. It’s never received any funding and was the dream and brainchild of two old school friends. The only beer, cider and food on sale at the festival is locally brewed and produced, along with famous local restaurants making an appearance on site every year without fail. This gives the festival a great community vibe and over the years has gained the attention of well-respected regional and national publications.
The festival attracts thousands of music lovers each year and welcomes adults of all ages through its gates. It’s even attractive for those parents with young children who can join in on all the fun and games available on site.
The next 2016 LEMONFEST act additions are:
The Guardian has called them "the best live band in the country" and 2016 sees Alabama 3 bringing their sweet country house music to Devon.
Kiko Bun adds LEMONFEST to his packed summer of festival slots including Lovebox, Notting Hill Carnival and Bestival. Last year’s release ‘Sticky Situation’ sparked an extraordinary level of online interest, swiftly resulting in Kiko’s signing to Island Records.
MAD DOG MCREA
Mad Dog Mcrea blend a unique mixture of folk rock, pop, gypsy jazz, bluegrass and ‘shake your ass’ music. From self-penned songs of adventure, drinking, love and life, to traditional songs of gypsies, fairies, legless pirates and black flies – Mad Dog never fail to capture their audience with their infectious songs.
D&B line up additions includes CYANTIFIC, MAJISTRATE and FRANKEE with more to be announced very soon.
"We're excited to add a headliner of Alabama 3's calibre to an already stellar line-up. We're also expanding our Dance Arena this year to hold nearly 1,000 people on it's own, so it's going to be one hell of a party. We can't wait to give you more news in the next few weeks" - Matt Freemantle, LemonFest organiser

Swedish post metalcore outfit IMMINENCE have released the official music video for their brand new song, 'Can We Give It All'.
The clip was directed by the band's multi talented singer, Eddie Berg, who has created all of IMMINENCE's romantic, at times yet disturbing and crushing music videos.
"With our new single, Can We Give It All, we are really turning the page for our band and music. It's both thrilling and terrifying to expose my voice and myself in my lyrics to a whole new extent. I hope that you will find a connection and comfort in the new song, and that it will mean as much to you as it means to me." - With love, Eddie from IMMINENCE.

The song is the second single after 'The Sickness' off their upcoming album to be released on Arising Empire!
