my bad sister

East London-born Identical twins Polly and Sophie Duniam are an all-singing, all-dancing turbo-charged duo truly not giving a fuck all over Europe and the UK. Mashing-up cockney-style delivery, rap, supercatchy lyrics and bass driven beats with razor-sharp mirrored choreography, they call this a Cabarave.

For the last six years they’ve toured extensively including top slots at Glastonbury, BoomTown, Illusive Love summer and Symmetry, and festivals and clubs in Switzerland, France, Holland, Portugal, Italy and Germany.

My Bad Sister are a truly unforgettable live act… a must see!

We couldn’t have hoped for the amount of Fun we got on the Sunday last year from this Crew. The parents were all getting a little tired after the rain of the previous day but their was no let up from all the little llovelies, they didn’t need much encouragement and really turned the place upside down for us.

Take a look at some of the photos below the Funbass Crew grabbed the children’s attention from the outset and kept them going until fit to drop. 

laid blak

Friday night in the Big Top gave us a night of bass heavy Reggae.

Our Headline Act for the night was Laid Blak from Bristol who gave a great performance including plenty of impromptu participation from the audience and bringing people up on to the stage with them.

As well as giving an outstanding performance they are one of the nicest groups of people who have had come and perform for us.
