THE full line-up for this year’s Basingstoke Live has now been revealed.

Along with headline acts Hackney MC Paigey Cakey and 2-tone band Dub Pistols, there’s an awesome offering of rock, indie, house, hip-hop, rap, drum ‘n’ bass, reggae and funk taking place across two days and five stages.

With more than 10,000 tickets already being snapped up, the free musical extravaganza held at the War Memorial Park on Saturday, July 8, and Sunday, July 9, looks set to be the biggest the town has seen.

Singer turned actress Paigey Cakey is the first female act to headline the main stage at the Basingstoke music festival and will close out the Saturday night performing tracks from her debut album The First Paige.

The rapper has also featured on Fearne Cotton’s Radio 1 show.

Veteran performers Dub Pistols will keep the crowds rocking on Sunday evening’s Main Stage.

Best known as a 21st century equivalent of acts such as The Specials or The Beat, the Dub Pistols have worked with vocal legends like Busta Rhymes, Terry Hall and Rodney P over the past 20 years.

As well as two established headliners, there will be plenty of local talent performing as well, with Basingstoke hip-hop star Signal on the Main Stage on the Saturday as main support.

Local rapper, singer and songwriter MCX, from Basingstoke, will take to the Sunrise Stage on Saturday, while on the Amped Stage is Basingstoke rock band High Tide Royals.

Returning this year to the Sunrise Stage on the Sunday is Basingstoke’s funk-soul-rare groove band B-funkt, an 11-piece outfit who guarantee a good time.

Performing on the Sunday Main Stage are Basingstoke bands STUP!D and Original Jack, local duo Alex Middelton and Lily Kyle, and local rockers The Zone.

That’s not all going on in the park – all the family can take part in music workshops and performances on the Creative Stage, enjoy the fun fair, visit the community village and join get active sessions.

Free tickets are now available for the music extravaganza.

Admission is strictly by ticket this year – only children under the age of five will not need one. Apply online at basingstokelive.
