Barclaycard presents British Summer Time is now officially in full swing – with Massive Attack, Florence and the Machine, Kendrick Lamar and Carole King all kicking off a huge opening weekend. The smaller stages have been full to the brim with fantastic artists, with Shura, Warpaint, Georgia, Poliça and Rae Morris all appearing on the Barclaycard Stage. Gwilym Gold, Isaac Gracie and Tips For 2016‘s Billie Marten also played over on the Summer Stage.
Another artist who appeared on the Barclaycard Stage was long time Amazing Radio favourite, Ghostpoet. Having first graced our airwaves with Cash & Carry Me Home all the way back in 2011, Obaro Ejimiwe‘s sound has progressed endlessly through his three albums: Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam, Some Say I So I Say Light and Shedding Skin. It was his most recent third LP which brought about his highest accolades to date – a highest ever UK Albums Chart position, a second Mercury Prize nomination, and an Amazing Chart number one for Off Peak Dreams, no less. With so much under his belt already, The Morning Show‘s Chris Murray couldn’t resist the chance for a chat.
Listen to Chris’ chat with Obaro below.
Barclaycard presents British Summer Time continues this weekend (8-10th July) with headliners Mumford and Sons, Take That and Stevie Wonder. Don’t forget to check out some of the artists appearing on the smaller stages – here. Tickets for all remaining festival shows are available here.
