If you thought last year’s line-up with Ice Cube was amazing, just wait until you hear the line-up for WILD LIFE 2017. Stormzy, Giggs, J Hus, Clean Bandit, and Jess Glynne are just some of the amazing acts for this year and you won’t want to miss it.

WILD LIFE is hosted at Brighton City airport in Shoreham-by-Sea on Friday 9th June to Saturday 10th June and there will be shuttle buses from Brighton and Worthing going to and from the festival. The festival runs from 2pm until 1am both days and there’s a variety of food stalls available and 6 different stages to see acts perform.

Every year, Rudimental and Disclosure perform and this year they will both be making a return, Rudimental’s performance will be a DJ set which is just as good as the real thing and a performance from Disclosure b2b Armand Van Helden.

On Friday, the artists performing on the main stage include solo artist Jess Glynne, electric music group Clean Bandit with their new hit ‘Symphony’ and singer-songwriter Zara Larsson, plus many more. Fatboy Slim, Gorgon City, Hannah Wants, The Martinez Brothers and Shadow Child are just a few of the acts on the other stages.

It seems WILD LIFE are expressing their love for grime music this year with J Hus, JME, Wiley, AJ Tracey, Giggs and a couple more all performing on Friday. J Hus is a singer/rapper from East London and on May 12th this year, he released his new album ‘Common Sense’ with all-time hit ‘Did You See’. Giggs, from South London, released his album, ‘Landlord’ last year, with wavy tunes ‘Lock Doh’ & ‘Whippin Excursion’ and is featured in Stormzy’s ‘Bad Boys’. JME is a grime rapper (the ultimate grime MC) and is the co-founder of the label Boy Better Know, brother of fellow grime artist Skepta and he has wavy tunes such as ‘Man Don’t Care’. Wiley is a rapper and songwriter and is in the music group Boy Better Know with other artists Skepta and JME, and recently released his album ‘Godfather’.

Rapper and grime artist, Stormzy, will be hitting the main stage on Saturday with his recently released album ‘Gang Signs and Prayers’ and will be performing hits, ‘Big For Your Boots’ and ‘Cold’, if you haven’t heard his new album, go listen to it now; it’s fire. Dizzie Rascal, Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley, Rag’n’Bone Man, Liv Dawson and Andy C will also all be performing on the Saturday.

The VIP area will be heavenly this year with comfortable places to sit, divine toilets, and massages by winged angels. I highly recommend getting a VIP ticket if you have the extra money; you’ll get fast track entry into the festival and they’ll be no bar queues as you can go to the bars in the closed off VIP area, getting a VIP day ticket last year got me into the festival within 5 minutes of arriving and the drinks just kept on flowing.

The tickets available to buy are, weekend tickets, VIP weekend tickets, day tickest, (Friday or Saturday) VIP day tickets, you can pay the tickets in full price or deposit schemes are also available and if you require a shuttle bus ticket you can purchase them with your festival ticket or separately.

You really don’t want to miss WILD LIFE 2017.
