Some of Britain's 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 Status's 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 Sabre's appearance at G-Fest follows a stand-out performance at BBC Radio 1's Hackney Weekend in June, and promises to be one of the highlights of the Preston Guild City Festival which begins on 31st August and lasts for 10 days. The full line-up also features the genre-splitting collective Clement Marfo & The Frontline, Northern Soul band The Milk and alternative hip-hop act Abandoman.
Preston Guild takes place once every 20 years. It is the world's only year-long festival with a history dating back more than 800 years, and is the only Guild still celebrated in the UK.
