Fat-Suit / Werkha (Live band) image

"One of the best bands in British music full stop" (BBC Radio Scotland). 

Fat-Suit is a 14-piece instrumental collective who deliver a mighty fusion of jazz, rock, and folk with a line up of guitars, violins, keyboards, horns, bass, drums and percussion. Compared to American fusion juggernaut, Snarky Puppy, they have played summer festivals across Europe delivering their “sun bright, pulsating blast of energy” (The Herald). 

Glaswegian producer Tom A. Leah, A.K.A. Werkha, makes his Festival debut with a full live band, including outstanding vocalist Byrony Jarman-Pinto. This underground sensation heavily supported by Gilles Peterson present an infectious fusion of Afro-beat, bass, house, jazz, funk and soul.

Providing an electric soundtrack , Edinburgh based producer Chow Main gets the music started.

Paradise Palms hosts the Cross The Tracks after party into the wee small hours.
