Heating up the Harbourside again for 2023, Siren is back in Bristol, UK from Thursday 27th to Saturday 29th July, kicking off with a stellar headline performance from jungle and D&B legends Fabio & Grooverider and The Outlook Orchestra.
The harbourside night of D&B on Thursday 27th July will also see original reggae selector and British radio DJ, David Rodigan MBE take to the stage, as well as incredibly talented Bristol MC Gardna, plus more support to be announced. Following last year's success of Siren shows, the pioneering partnership that is Fabio & Grooverider will perform outstanding orchestral renditions of classic D&B anthems at Lloyds Amphitheatre against the stunning backdrop of Bristol’s harbour, providing the ultimate setting for the duo’s eclectic sets that is set to pack out with crowds.
Tom Hoyle, Co-Founder of Siren shares, “It’s great to bring Siren back to Bristol Harbourside this year with our biggest line-up yet. Fabio & Grooverider and The Outlook Orchestra will be kicking off the weekend, which is the perfect way to get the party started. A legendary duo in drum & bass and jungle, they’re a living machine of creativity and not to be missed.”
After four years in the making, Fabio & Grooverider are collaborating with The Outlook Orchestra to present a special score featuring some of the scene’s most well-loved tracks. Riding high from two sold-out nights at London’s Royal Festival Hall, the show celebrates the history of jungle and D&B with a genre-bending tribute. Arriving in the D&B capital of Bristol, the headliners will explore classic anthems in ways never-before-experienced.
One of the most legendary partnerships in music, the duo remain at the forefront of a scene they helped build, championing the now global sounds of the underground and beyond. From pirate radio to the seminal jungle night Rage at Heaven, and now onto the biggest stages across the globe, the pair have helped forge a vast range of styles, including liquid, jump-up, technical, minimal and half-time. Widely recognised as the pioneers of jungle and drum & bass, they have been making their mark on dance music since 1988. The faces of D&B music on BBC Radio 1 for 14 years, they’ve helped break some of the biggest acts today.
Taking Fabio and Grooverider's performance to the next level, The Outlook Orchestra which formed in 2017 has grown to be a force in its own right, collaborating with trailblazers within sound system culture from across the globe and driving the scene forward in new ways. Working closely with contributors including Dizzee Rascal, David Rodigan and Mala, the Orchestra has presented unforgettable performances of timeless classics.
Paying homage to globally-renowned tracks from the underground, this is a not-to-be missed moment of Bristol’s summer. Tickets are available here
