They’ll play alongside José González and MCDE at Labyrinth’s Tofte Manor event this summer.

Nabihah Iqbal, MCDE, Fred again.. and more are heading to the Bedfordshire countryside this August for a new one-day festival helmed by London promoters Labyrinth. The event takes place on 7 August at Tofte Manor, a 17th century manor house. It forms part of a series of three Labyrinth-helmed festivals taking place at the venue this summer. Find out more about the other events here.

Pampa Records boss DJ Koze will co-headline the August date alongside Swedish singer-songwriter and prior collaborator José González. The gig marks González’s first show in the UK since 2019. The likes of Elder Island, Sedef Adasi, Suze Ijó and Labyrinth founder and resident DJ Nick Castle are also billed. DJ Koze’s latest album, 2018’s Knock Knock, featured in Crack Magazine’s The Albums of 2018: Honourable Mentions roundup. We described the album as: “luminescent sadlad filter-house and broken-hearted disco…sunrise-ready dewy-eyed anthems in the making.”
