Line-up /Noisettes w/ Tinashe
The Noisettes’ infectious, upbeat sound has successfully penetrated the British music scene with dizzying speed in the past two years. The group are fresh from their sell-out UK tour, and are renowned the world over for their explosive live shows and electrifying vocals.
Support comes in the form of Tinashe, a hugely talented, up-and-coming singer-songwriter from hailing from Zimbabwe via Hackney, who can conjure up sheer magic with his guitar. A long-time supporter of vinspired Lake of Stars, Tinashe is taking time out from his busy summer schedule to support the night with his beautiful tones and unique fusion of indie-pop guitar based tunes.
This will be a particularly inspiring gig for both the Noisettes and Tinashe, who have roots in Malawi and neighbouring Zimbabwe and will join thousands of festival-goers from all over the globe travelling to the warm heart of Africa this October to headline this year’s vinspired Lake of Stars Festival.
This is sure to be a mesmerising evening celebrating a melting pot of the very best of British and African culture, mirroring the spectacle showcased at the festival itself. Just like the festival, August’s gig will be powered by a team of hard-working volunteers and will present an exciting opportunity to get a glimpse of what the festival is all about.
vinspired Lake of Stars will once again take place on the beautiful palm-fringed shores of Lake Malawi at the Sunbird Nkopola Lodge near Mangochi from 15th – 17th October 2010. A stunningly diverse line-up featuring the very best Malawian and international talent is being booked for this year’s festival – watch out for announcements very soon on www.lakeofstars.org.
