Famed for his UK number 1 hit ‘Be Faithful’ and collaborations with Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson and Skrillex, the multi Grammy winner will be taking on the Uncontained Stage on Sunday with his catalogue of hip-hop classics.

Now we are putting the icing on the cake with livewire, force of nature Fatman Scoop and some cracking indie action from the likes of The Magic Gang and Blaenavon, and some of the best local acts we could find including the winners of our I Want to Play at Common People competition, so let’s be havin’ ya… See you down the front!” Rob da Bank
