Orbital and Lianne La Havas for Hot Press Chatroom

Two big name additions...

Mere hours after we confirmed the first batch of fine Electric Picnic artists making a bee-line for the Hot Press Chatroom this weekend, we bring you even bigger news.

Rising soul singer Lianne La Havas, already beloved on these shores after some stunning, intimate shows, and having just released her first LP, has now confirmed she plans on paying us a visit. You can catch her in full conversation at the Hot Press Chatroom on Sunday.

The day before, we'll welcome the electronic giants of dance Orbital to our couch. Be sure to stop by to see them at 5pm Saturday, before their headline slot.

Just two exciting prospects confirmed – trust us, there's plenty more in the pipeline! Stay with Hot Press.

Blue Album

Perhaps I’m placing too many expectations upon the nine tracks that made the final cut, but suffice it to say that were it not for nostalgic value, this might well have been the album the discography forgot. Die-hard fans might well be appeased but for anyone seeking cutting edge, grab-you-by-the-cochlea dance music, then you won’t find it in this release.
