Some of Britains biggest urban and soul artists are coming to Preston this September 8th to star at the Guild music extravaganza, G-Fest. A host of chart-topping stellar acts are confirmed to appear at the all-day music festival, with soul star Maverick Sabre headlining a stunning bill along with iconic urban performer Labrinth, former N-Dubz front-man Dappy and feisty R&B girl group Stooshe.
Richly inspired by soul and urban sounds, Maverick Sabre is famed for his eerie vocals and hypnotic guitar skills. The artist maintains broad appeal, including everything from singing on Chase and Statuss No More Idols to performing on Later with Jools Holland, and his peerless album Lonely Are The Brave reached no.2 in the UK charts earlier this year. Maverick Sabre is a sensational soulful performer, who headlines G-Fest with a rousing climax to the show.
Like fellow huge stars Labrinth and Dappy, Maverick Sabres appearance at G-Fest follows a stand-out performance at BBC Radio 1s Hackney Weekend in June. The full line-up also features the genre-splitting collective Clement Marfo & The Frontline, Northern Soul band The Milk and alternative hip-hop duo Abandoman.
