Who is playing?

The line up for this festival is thriving with talent from both emerging local bands and established bands. From Canterbury based successful CoCo and the Butterfields and The Cuban Brothers to local acoustic sensation Thomas Ashby.

George Bartlett, organiser of City Sound Project told The Canterbury Hub how they decide what bands go on the line up

“Apart from our big headliners – We’ve always been about championing local talent – but Canterbury has so much of it – it would be impossible to put everyone on. We pick the things we collectively enjoy and look forward to sharing them with everyone.”

Other performances you should look forward to include Josephine and The Artizans.


Josephine and The Artizans

In an exclusive interview with The Canterbury Hub Josephine had this to say:

“The festival promotes diverse and fusion music so we’re excited to bring our concept HipHopera to City Sound Project and be part of the amazing lineup.”

Josephine and The Artizans have a history of playing some great festivals including Glastonbury, BoomTown Fair and Womad. They will also be performing at Latitude this year.

“We’ve been grateful enough to perform at some of the largest UK festivals. So we have had some amazing audiences but the CSP crowd is going to show us some real energy, right?”

The band will be performing a debut performance of their band new EP ‘HipHopera: Act IV’ which will be officially released on 03.06.19.
