Main Stage, Saturday 2016
Born out of the mid 80's inspirational Hip Hop scene and the DIY UK acid house/club scene, Stereo Mc's reputation grew slowly throughout the late 80's. They started an underground dance label, releasing diverse artists from Richie Rich to the Jungle Brothers as well as their own records, before being picked up by Island Records. Their extensive live performances include supporting De La Soul, A Certain Ratio, EMF and U2 and going on tour with The Happy Mondays in the UK and the US.
After early chart success in America with their 2nd LP Supernatural, they recorded the Album Connected which became an international hit. They embarked on a huge touring schedule including memorable appearances at Glastonbury and many other festivals worldwide. This period culminated in a Mercury prize nomination and 2 Brit awards for Best Album and Best Live Act.
They continue to build their well-deserved reputation as cutting-edge DJs in the underground club scene. We can’t wait to experience their high-energy live set at Wychwood 2016.
