LIVE AT SCORRIER HOUSE 2023 NEAR REDRUTH SHOULD BE A BARNSTORMER OF A FESTIVAL ON SATURDAY 26 AUGUST 2023. HOT CHIP HEADLINE ALONGSIDE LEFTFIELD AND 808 STATE. PREPARE FOR ONE OF THE BEST CORNWALL FESTIVALS…
Who doesn’t want to see Hot Chip, Leftfield, 808 State and The Hempolics play a gorgeous site in Cornwall this summer? Yeah, if you don’t want to see this eclectic collection of bands, then don’t hit up Live at Scorrier House 2023…
But, of course, if you like your British dance music then you do want to catch these chilled, dramatic, epic, dancy and awesome acts in Cornwall. Live at Scorrier House 2023 takes place on Saturday 26 August 2023 at, well, Scorrier House near Redruth. It’s a one-day-only festival with plenty of camping and glamping options to boot.
The 2023 edition follows a barnstormer of a 2022 fest which featured the likes of Groove Armada, Morcheeba, Tuba Libres, Dr Meaker and Grace Savage. These and a whole host of other acts got the crowds dancing in the woody aisles during the height of the Cornish summer. Music lovers of all ages took to their feet and swayed well into the long hot night.
Who is playing Live at Scorrier Fest 2023? This year’s headliners Hot Chip are often labelled as the ‘thinking person’s party band’. Hailing from London in the early 2000s, the act is known as a synthpop band with plenty of bite. Expect strobe-lit euphoria and introvert melancholy. Expect fans to go bonkers for Hot Chip at the Scorrier 2023 fest.
Supporting Hot Chip is Leftfield, who emerged in the 1990s and almost singlehandedly established a fresh template for ‘a new strain of British house music’. Often hard, sometimes melodic, Leftfield will undoubtedly get that Scorrier dance floor rocking. Also worth catching are 808 State, who helped to reinvent UK electronica in the 1990s.
Expect more top acts and a block-rockin’ party at Scorrier House, an idyllic country retreat near Redruth with gorgeous grounds that are just perfect for a hazy summer party like this. Flowery meadows stretch out across the estate so the lasers and light shows that kicked in as dusk settled perfectly complemented the best in British dance music that filled the evening air.
Aside from the big acts, though, there could be a (ssshhhh) Secret Woodland After Party. This was headlined by Daddy G from Massive Attack at the 2022 edition. Also joining that 2022 party, which is home to posh loos, a private bar and sees the talent actually playing their sets in treehouses, was Bristol Hi-Fi collective DJ Queen Bee.
Live at Scorrier 2023 should be a barnstormer with its music, its sheer choice of street food options and, of course, its masses of space for camping and glamping. Release the pressure at this one-day fest. Go on, who got the Leftfield track reference there?
