On Saturday 5th August, Cardiff will welcome The Sugarhill Gang, The Hackney Colliery Band, Greg Wilson and The Mariachis to The SSE Swalec Stadium, as they guest at the very first Depot In The Park. Seeking to offer a fun day out for the whole family, the festival’s organisers are comprised of some of the city’s most creative minds, and have curated a lineup of top musical acts and fantastic street food vendors to ensure that there’s something for everyone.
Hip hop pioneers The Sugarhill Gang are known primarily for “Rapper’s Delight”, but with five studio albums under their belt they’ve got plenty more material where that came from, and will have time to skip their way through it as they command the stage at Sophia Gardens. Hailing from New Jersey, they don’t spend too much time in the UK, so catching them in Cardiff is a rare opportunity indeed.
UK equivalent to the marching brass bands of the states, The Hackney Colliery Band, will also star, with Madchester veteran DJ Greg Wilson and Mexican group The Mariachis also showing their faces. Set to be a varied and exciting affair, the festival will kick off at midday on Saturday 5th August.
