Rapper Dizzee Rascal has been announced as one of the headline acts at this year’s Blissfield Festival.
The event takes place at Vicarage Farm, Woodmancott near Winchester on 20 June – 2 July, 2016.
Dizzee Rascal will headline in his only festival appearance of the year so far.
Dylan Kwabena Mills (born 18 September 1984), better known by his stage name Dizzee Rascal, is an English rapper, grime MC, songwriter and record producer. His music melds elements of grime, UK garage, bassline, British hip hop, R&B and rock through low-tech production techniques, which gives his music a stripped down unencumbered feel. This musical fusion is characteristic of the new breed of rappers that are becoming popular. While heavily influenced by US hip hop imagery, style and vocabulary, his thick east London accent, in
conjunction with his raps that focus on life in London from the perspective of a young black male, make his music resonate with youth throughout the city.
Best known for his number-one hits “Dance wiv Me”, “Bonkers”, “Holiday”, “Dirtee Disco” and “Shout”, his debut album Boy in da Corner won him the 2003 Mercury Prize. Follow-up albums Showtime, Maths + English and Tongue n’ Cheek have been critically acclaimed and certified gold, the last going platinum for sales exceeding 300,000 units in the United Kingdom.
He inspires many teenagers to be like him. At the 2010 Brit Awards he won the award for Best British Male Solo Artist.
Thanks to Blissfiled festival to give us the opportunity to see such an artist live… WE CAN’T WAY!
