A TRIO of top DJs will join the impressive choice of acts already featuring at this year’s Henley Festival.
Accompanying some of the biggest names in music, comedy and food, top soundsmiths Mark Jones, Lottie and Rusty Egan will all be taking to the decks at the festival on the banks of the Thames.
They are due to perform at the onsite venue Indigo, providing a soundtrack to the Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings of the event which runs from July 9 to 13.
With an excitingly eclectic career to date, Mark Jones will spin a selection of floor fillers on Thursday, giving guests the chance to dance the night away in true Henley Festival style.
Next up on Friday is Lottie, who has been at the forefront of the electronic music scene for two decades, having become possibly the most iconic female DJ to date. Her anticipated set rounds up the evening.
Taking charge of Indigo on Saturday will be the critically acclaimed Rusty Egan. Egan has a musical history that spans more than five decades, has been an ambassador for electronic music since the late Seventies and was one of the main instigators in the New Romantic movement.
Ahead of each DJ set, each evening features one of the world’s finest headline acts, appearing on the Floating Stage. Starting proceedings on the Wednesday is one of the world’s most iconic singers Bryan Ferry, followed by singer/songwriter Joss Stone on Thursday. One of the most accomplished composers of the 20th century, the legendary Burt Bacharach performs on Friday and the ever popular The Jacksons take to the stage on the Saturday, for a much-anticipated performance.
Completing the line up are co-headliners, Rebecca Ferguson (see our interview with the X Factor success on page 33) and chart-topping do-wop quintet The Overtones who will appear on the closing day of the event — Sunday.
