VINCE YALLOP

A varied line-up of underground and overground cult talent are lined up for a massive 24-hour party in a field in Norfolk this Saturday, August 4 - and it's all above board!

Dizzee Rascal, The Fall, ESG, Uffie, The Rumble Strips, Trevor Jackson and The Hours are among the top names appearing at the second Tales of the Jackalope party, held in association with eye-opening street culture magazine Vice. The first was held in Derbyshire last year and proved the place to spot bands such as Klaxons.

Now Norfolk gets a chance to revel in the same fun after the promoter was introduced to Kimberley Hall, about 2½ miles from Wymondham. Hopefully it's the start of a wonderful relationship.

We think they'll be a fair few urban trendies jumping in their cars to get to it as well, so pack your Spotter's Guide to Designer Labels in your back pocket. But Vice magazine is known for showing people who do different when it comes to dressing up, so do that and you may just feature in one of their issues.

As for the stars - UK rapper Dizzee Rascal is nominated for a Mercury Prize for the second time, this time for his third album Maths and English. He won it back in 2003 for his debut, Boy in da Corner.

Most Read

The Fall will be Mark E Smith and whatever backing band he dictates will be in place, but expect solid guitar action, some sneers and a broken smile.

New York punk-funk band ESG are just as legendary - if you don't recognise their name, you will undoubtedly know their grooves which have been sampled for numerous hip hop records over the years.

Singer Uffie has gained a cult following for her single Pop The Glock, and she appears with regular producer DJ Feadz.

Other names to watch out for include synth-funk duo Chromeo, ska-pop band The Rumble Strips, piano-led combo The Hours and former Test Icicles member Lightspeed Champion.

Chris Cunningham, who has made infamous music videos for Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Bjork and Leftfield, plays a DJ set.

Norwich's own Le Tetsuo are also on the bill.

Gates open at noon on Saturday and the event carries on until daylight on Sunday. Tickets are £35 (excluding booking fee) - get them from www.ticketweb.co.uk and www.seetickets.com.

Tickets will also be available on the gate (subject to availability) at face value. The event is strictly for over 18s.
