Get there early to reserve your spot on the dance floor.


Armed with nothing but horns and percussion, Copperhead Brass Band combines elements of the loud, gritty street parties of New Orleans with the meticulously arranged sounds and beats of a hip-hop troupe. Inspired by the heavy-hitters of American brass bands such as Youngblood and the Stooges and after having played at a number of huge festivals (Falls, Folk Rhythm & Life), Copperhead will bring the dance wherever they see fit!


Cupcake’s killer vocalist, Tika, is backed by a sizzling 4-piece horn section and soulful 4-piece rhythm section. Popping with a party energy and an electricity you can’t bottle Cupcake delivers mesmerising groove masterpieces.

Cupcake pioneers a new brand of music. A music that blends pop and soul music with a sophistication and inventiveness that only the finest jazz and funk players and composers can bring.
