SLAMBOREE are a cutting-edge live music and contemporary circus extravaganza comprised of multi-talented performers from around the world. An internet sensation, now recognised on Soundcloud’s list of hottest global tracks alongside major artists such as Lady Gaga and Skrillex. Infamous for being a word-of-mouth phenomenon, the band are now set to whip up a storm performing headline slots at some of the UK’s most heavyweight alternative music festivals.

After just one year together they will be spending the summer taking their unique show to award-winning independent festivals such as Radio One DJ Rob Da Bank’s Bestival on the Isle of Wight, the sublime Secret Garden Party, the Lake District’s Kendal Calling, Beatherder and Solfest to name a few.

Furthermore, Liverpool Sound City – fast becoming known as the UK’s answer to music industry showcase South By South West (SXSW) have snapped up the show to provide the closing ceremony at Liverpool Arts Academy. Brighton Fringe have asked the band to play a double bill at this year’s event, and London’s innovative, forward-thinking new festival project Pleasure Gardens have asked them to bring the spectacle to the centre of the UK’s capital.

Featuring a 10-piece live band with circus performers, Slamboree create an immersive audio-visual experience, incorporating electronic music with live instruments, acrobatics, pyrotechnics, fire and much more.

The live band mix up genres spanning from Dub to Balkan, Classical to Drum & Bass and Breakbeat to Electro Swing. An ensemble of orchestral and brass performers push the energy of the live show one step further, and the performance is brought together by synths and driving  electronic beats created by Freear, a featured artist/producer on
Recent festival descriptions have tagged Slamboree’s music as ‘Neo-Balkan Rave Circus’, and ‘Gypstep’.

The Slamboree Circus, at the forefront of the performance, is equally diverse. Featuring contemporary cabaret and burlesque performances, the show incorporates dynamic aerial acrobatics, object manipulation, puppetry and dance. The engaging visual spectacle is magnified by professional body art and costume design to create an original and inspiring theatrical performance.

On their first Summer in 2011 they went from playing to a roomful of their friends to taking groundbreaking shows to festivals such as Glastonbury, Boomtown Fair and Shambala. Slamboree went on to become the resident band for Arcadia’s ‘Afterburner’ fire stage at Electric Picnic Festival in Ireland.
