It’s about time we announce some more acts, and this time we have over 70 confirmed acts who will be flocking to Levels Festival next month. We previously announced that The Fall, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Mike Skinner and Murkage present Tonga, L.A. Salami, The Nightingales, The Tangerines and Collapsed Lung would be appearing on the line up across the weekend.
Headlining the Levels After Show Party with Taste The Punch will be the world-renowned Claptone, who will be fresh from his series of shows in Australia and America. Calling Berlin his home, the city has influenced some of his most popular singles, ‘Cream’ and ‘Wrong’. Also citing Detroit, Chicago and New York as places of influence, Claptone’s set will consist of the most richest and bewitching sounds around.
Adding to the list of talent will be the energetic “prog swing hop” band, Rum Buffalo, plus five-piece, Department S, who are celebrating their 10th year since they reformed - it has been almost 40 years since the band first performed. Also joining the line up will be US-born soul singer, Jalen N’Gonda, who moved to Liverpool and began to flourish as a musician. Fresh from a support slot with The Libertines, Tom Grennan will make his way to Luton on the Sunday - not long before his single with Chase and Status is released.

Keeping The Castle alight will be hardcore headliners TRC. Support comes from No Consequence, When We Were Wolves, No Sin Evades His Gaze and Alone With Wolves. With more to be announced in the coming weeks for this venue, we can guarantee that this will be a hub of rising talent.
Finally, it brings us great pleasure in announcing the headliner for the Carnival Arts Centre on the Sunday will be Jay Kadn, an artist signed to one of the leading record companies in the UK Bhangra and Asian music scene. Featuring on the stage just before the headliner will be Mumzy Stranger, who is described as a “British Bangladeshi MC” and singer-songwriter Char Avell.
Although there is still even more artists to reveal, the list of acts announced today might just toy with the idea that this is going to be a weekend nobody is going to forget. Tickets are on sale now and there are still a limited amount of free tickets left for under 18s. Don’t miss out!
