Recap 2022: Boomtown to Bali
It’s almost 2023, and as the new year rolls around, we're taking a look back over the last 12 months.
2022 really has been a banner year for Craft Music. We feel privileged to have worked with some incredible artists from all over the world, as well as programming line-ups for some truly spectacular festivals.
Just some of the acts we've worked with this year include Julian Marley and The Uprising, Al Anderson and The Original Wailers, Mica Paris, Artful Dodger, The Garifuna Collective, Iraina Mancini, Ronan Keating and global superstar Anne Marie! Their shows have taking us around the world from Bali to Bahrain and back again!
Promoters are now looking ahead to next year's summer months and starting to build exciting, ticket-selling festival line-ups packed with crowd-pleasing artists.
If that sounds like you, then we’re here to help. The Craft Music roster, spanning party-starting live acts, floor-filling DJs and truly legendary names from soul, pop, reggae and more. In addition to one-off bookings, we’re able to provide programming services, crafting bespoke line-ups that will suit any audience, venue or event. A few ides for next year include:
Who doesn’t want to hit the dance floor when “Dancing In The Moonlight” comes on? Over two decades on, this classic tune still draws crowds, moves feet and lifts spirits across the UK and beyond, while Toploader continue to solidify their reputation as one of the best live acts on the circuit.
While we’re on the subject of classic tunes, Artful Dodger’s Craig David-featuring “Re-Rewind” deserves a mention. This MC/DJ duo are UK garage pioneers, and their electrifying sets feature the finest in ‘90s UKG and 2-step, alongside contemporary cuts that’ll keep audiences dancing until the early hours.
The group behind some of the most iconic songs in ‘80s music, Boney M’s unique brand of sparkling disco-pop catapulted them to international fame as one of the biggest-selling pop groups in musical history. After four decades in the industry, Boney M continue to put on sold-out performances across the globe.
This 10-piece brass phenomenon have practically reinvented the brass band, reimagining everything from Beyonce and Oasis to Shaggy and The Strokes in their own gloriously exhilarating style. Since forming a decade ago, ODB have delivered roof-raising sets at Glastonbury, Bestival, BST Hyde Park, Latitude and more.
