uncharted audio are delighted to announce that after cursor miner’s triumphant display at this year’s sonar festival in barcelona, lj kruzer will be appearing live at one of the uk’s biggest festivals, the big chill. Catch LJ on Sunday evening on the Sanctuary stage.
here’s the full info:

The Big Chill
Eastnor Castle Deer Park
3rd – 5th August, 2007

“It’s hard to imagine a more perfect event” The Times
“Everyone has a good time. And I mean everyone” iDJ Magazine

The festival season is well and truly upon us again, and as always The Big Chill boasts an impressive array of DJ performances, including an exclusive 4 hour session from the masters of downbeat, Kruder & Dorfmeister, electro-funk rebel Greg Wilson, celebrated producer Ashley Beedle, and the man who always packs the sunshine in his record box, Norman Jay MBE. Live sets come from UK funk maestros Cymande, ska pioneers The Skatalites, Gilles Peterson’s man of the moment Ben Westbeech, and the artist formerly known as Chef, soul legend Isaac Hayes. And if it all gets too much, why not call in for a nice refreshing cuppa at Mr Scruff’s Tea Tent?

As you may know, there is so much more to the Big Chill than music… arts, comedy, randomness, Big Chill Radio, gourmet food, fancy camping, not-as-fancy camping depending on your own taste, fancy dress (optional and with no general direction so do whatever you want!), portaloos, showers, chilling, clubbing, Amnesty’s Speaker’s Corner, ceilidh, body & soul and lots of trees.

Celebrating the spirit of pirate radio, there will be a welcome-to-the Big Chill sunset session by the lake near Big Chill Radio on the Thursday evening and further sunrise sessions during the event. Walker & Bromwich’s yatch “The Celeste” is covered in 50,000 mirror tiles, moored on the lake where they will create new sound and light waves to the soundtrack of Big Chill Radio, so don’t forget to bring your radio.

Ever get the feeling you’re watching the grass grow? You will this year, courtesy of Ackroyd & Harvey as they create a complex image using seedling grass by the main stage. The work will have the same life-cycle as the festival itself so we’re not telling you what the image will be yet as it will unravel and expose itself from yellow to greens.

Other art installations, scattered around site for you to find are Blakeborough’s Charles Zimmerman inspired flying platform controlled by body movements, Donkor’s full sized FT Mud Hut constructed from local materials and wallpapered with Financial Times newspapers, Semiconductor’s experimental film with animation, and Cooper & Coates’ living photo booth wandering the festival site. To mention a few.

This year’s festival launches a brand-spanking new all-singing (well, Punk Rock Karaoke, that is) and all-dancing comedy cabaret tent featuring anything from the sublime to the ridiculous… it’s BIG CHILL NIGHTS, with everything and anything from Bethnal Green’s Working Men’s Club to ‘Danza Antigua’ – an immersive theatre experience from Scarabeus with spectacular aerial performances, a Halloween short film selection, John Hegley, Sean Hughes and a lot more.
