Band on the Wall returns to Bluedot and Kendal Calling Festivals for 2019 to celebrate music and performance from around the world. Across the two festivals we have curated a programme of inspiring and entertaining international artists, including dub techno pioneer Mark Ernestus’ deeply percussive African project Ndagga Rhythm Force, powerful Congolese collective KOKOKO!, future jazz-soul singer Yazmin Lacey, jazz-tinged hip-hop maestro Barney Artist, a whole exploration of the music of South Asia including a celebration of the music of the legendary Manna Dey, fun and engaging workshops, and much, much more.
KOKOKO! and Mark Ernestus’ Ndagga Rhythm Force will perform on the main stages. All other acts will perform on the Roots Stage.
