About Marshall Jefferson:
Marshall Jefferson is considered “The Godfather of House” and has been a pioneer in the genre for the last 40 years. Also known for his legendary GRAMMY nominated group Ten City, Jefferson’s release of the original “Move Your Body” solidified him as a true pioneer within the house music genre. The song was the first release of its time to weave piano into its sonic production and has since seen multiple hit iterations through collaborations with the likes of Solardo and Tchami, truly showcasing the original’s timelessness. Jefferson continues to perform live and release music with Ten City and as a solo artist.

Piers Aggett, Kesi Dryden and Leon “Locksmith” Rolle are better collectively known as Rudimental the genre-bending electronic three-piece from East London. As one of the UK’s most successful dance acts of the last decade Rudimental have set the bar high. Multiple chart topping singles, 5 billion streams, x4 albums, world tours plus a plethora of awards that have cemented their position as trailblazers with a formidable reputation for producing hit records. It’s been 10 years since the band first broke through with their Mercury nominated album “Home” and, after taking a step back recently, they’re ushering in a fresh phase with renewed vigour and focus. Now signed to Room Two, a sub-division of Columbia Records, Rudimental have returned to their roots, tapping into the original energy that launched them into the limelight back in 2012. Primed for a spectacular return to the stage, and equipped with new material that evokes that authentic Rudimental feeling, the band are ready to let loose once again.
