Nature Ganganbaigal and TENGGER CAVALRY have been turning heads in the music world since the band's inception in 2010. In 2014, Ganganbaigal released his Mongolian New Age album To Where Tengger Leads Me. The album won a bronze medal from Global Music Awards and a nomination from Hollywood Music in Media Awards. In 2015, Nature moved to New York City from China and re-located the band with brand new American members. Last year, the band released a new album, Blood Sacrifice Shaman, out via Metal Hell Records.
TENGGER CAVALRY blends the nomadic music tradition of Central Asia with heavy metal music, creating the unique music genre mentioned above, Mongolian folk metal. Nature Ganganbaigal performs multiple Mongolian nomadic instruments including Mongolian horse-head fiddle Morin Khuur, Mongolian flute, Tibetan horn, Mongolian guitar (Tovshuur) and other instruments native to the region. He is also able to sing using the ancient Mongolian singing tradition of Khoomei, also known as throat singing or overtone singing. After the release of four studio albums in Europe and United States, TENGGER CAVALRY has become known as one of the most unique, innovative and exciting metal bands in Asia.
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 includingLovebox, 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

EAU CLAIRE, WI | MARCH 31, 2016: Alternative/pop band, The Millenium has been gaining a rabid fan base since their inception in early 2014. The band has been praised for their dynamic songwriting consisting of every ounce of their heart and soul, and today, The Millenium is yet again proving their moving musical abilities with their latest single, “Interstates.” Listen to the spine-chilling tune via the band's captivating visual accompaniment exclusively at Idobi Radio HERE.
“The foundation of this song, now four years old, is rooted in so many different monumental life changes for all of us. Written in all four seasons multiple times over has made it slightly ambiguous. Ever growing, ever reeling. The meaning has turned from a personal inquisition we once fondly knew, to a play-by-play of a character we’re not exactly familiar with anymore." - The Millenium
The Millenium was born from the demise of their previous groups, close friends Kyle Culver (guitar), Kyle Featherstone (guitar, piano, vocals), and Matt Hasenmueller (lead vocals) began writing music together to satiate the creative crave fostered by the ever changing culture of their hometown Eau Claire, WI (home of Grammy winning artist Bon Iver). Starting in early 2014, The Millenium tore into the world opening for bands Now, Now and The Summer Set on campus at UW - Eau Claire. Soon after with the success of their debut EP "It's So Much Friendlier With Two" (a record dedicated to love, loss, and learning - themes that resonate not just with each member individually, but have gone as far as defining our generation as a whole), the band saw ferocious growth on the road, securing five support tours and two headlining runs in the coming years. While often feeling like a pop band in a punk world, The Millenium strives to bring more nontraditional elements into their sound. Incorporating realms of indie, acoustic and electronic styles in a sometimes eclectic fashion, one is sure to appreciate a genuine sound showcasing undeniably catchy and melodically driven tracks intertwined with a playful and inventive blend of acoustic guitar and keyboard.
Head over to Idobi Radio to check out The Millenium’s new single, “Interstates.” The Millenium will be hitting the road this April in support of their new single, dates can be found below. Make sure you follow The Millenium on social media for new music, updates, shows announcements and more.
