Although known to most as the youngest sibling in the Knowles family, Solange has been working hard over the years to create her own sound away from that of her sister’s- the result being soulful, funk inspired melodies.
Solange’s latest album ‘A Seat At The Table’ was released towards the end of last year to much critical acclaim. Featuring artists such as Lil Wayne, Sampha and Kelly Rowland, the album quickly reached number one in the United States.
Make sure to check out Solange’s set on Saturday at 20:30 BST on West Holts Stage.
One of the rising stars of UK rap, Nines is a London based rapper whose name has become synonymous with the hip-hip rap scene in the British capital.
With his debut album ‘One Foot Out’ reaching number 2 in the iTunes chart after its initial release, and his latest single ‘High Roller’ featuring J Hus, it’s easy to see why Nines is making such a name for himself in the rap world.
