Utah Saints and Dutty Moonshine Big Band added to Solfest bill, plus day tickets announced.
Solfest’s 15th birthday party is just around the corner and the excitement is definitely building. With the announcement only a couple of weeks ago of acts such as The Coral and Krafty Kuts being added to the bill we thought the line up was complete but it has now been announced that dance music legends Utah Saints have also been added to the bill. They close the Drystone main stage on the Saturday night.
Described by the KLF as “The first true stadium House band” Utah Saints have been making music, DJ-ing and playing gigs around the globe since the birth of house music. The world renowned duo have released 9 top 40 hits, 4 of which hit the Top 10, they have sold over 2 million records worldwide and are best known for tracks Something Good and What can you do for me.
It has also been announced that closing the Drystone main stage on the Sunday night is Solfest 2017 favourite Dutty Moonshine big band.
