The full line-up for Hull's Freedom Festival has been unveiled, with hotly-tipped London rapper Kate Tempest today announced as headliner for a brand new stage which celebrates emerging talent.
Kate joins a wildly eclectic 2014 festival programme, featuring internationally-renowned artists, street performances plus an unprecedented number of interactive, participatory attractions and events that enable audience members themselves to become part of the festival programme this year.
New at Freedom Festival 2014 is the 'Bridge Stage', which aims to help emerging local talent get ahead in the industry and is supported by Hull's former Housemartin and Beautiful South singer Paul Heaton.
The stage, featuring Hull-based artists Life, Endoflevelbaddie, Bud Sugar, Mother and many more will be headlined by Kate Tempest, whose pivotal Glastonbury appearance last month further boosted her profile and fan base, following rave reviews of her debut album Everybody Down.
Paul Heaton said: "The Bridge Stage at Freedom Festival is giving new artists the opportunity to meet and co-operate with other similar, like-minded talent. It's incredibly important that Hull harnesses its talent and displays it. The new stage does both, while giving the audience a real chance to see what music is making Hull sparkle at the moment."
