A WAVE of renowned dance acts are joining an eclectic musical line-up on the beach for First Light Festival, the free, non-stop, 24-hour multi arts festival taking place on June 22nd and 23rd in Lowestoft, Suffolk. Kicking off with sets from

Talvin Singh and A Man Called Adam and followed by a special sundown set by BBC 6 Music’s revered DJ Gilles Peterson, the dance acts will also feature seaside sets from Faze Action, Ben Osborne, Jack Hemingway, Flying Mojito Bros and many more. There will also be a beachfront silent disco with a special guest performance by Wayne Hemingway, one of First Light’s founders and a prolific collector of vinyl from northern soul, through funk, underground, disco and boogie. The multi-arts free-entry

festival will feature stages and performances on the beach and in the Japanese Gardens. The silent disco and after hours Gilles Peterson set will be ticketed separately. Line-up - DJ strand the

brilliantly eclectic BBC 6 Music radio presenter and international club DJ Gilles Peterson will bring the best world-wide vibes to the beach for a sunset session. This will be followed by a ticketed after hours show at the club venue. Best known as a radio presenter on Saturday afternoons on BBC 6 Music and label boss for acid jazz, Talking Loud and Brownswood record labels, Gilles is a global tastemaker, avid record collector, curator and music producer. A Man Called Adam, one

of the main UK acts to fuse jazz and Latin with dance music, are responsible for spearheading Balearic House, Chill Out and UK House/ Nu disco. Their recently- released album Farmarama (Other Records 2019) has been described as “brilliant” by Gilles Peterson and “the sound of summer 2019” by Danny Rampling. Plus: Silent Disco with

a Difference. Silent Disco has become a popular way of getting around noise restrictions, but the concept originated as an arts project

that re-shaped the dancefloor and changed the way DJs read the crowd, with DJ channels playing radically different styles of music. First Light takes it back to these roots, with a line-up of distinguished DJs known for playing different styles. People will be able to switch between dancing to the best in Northern Soul, Afro House, Electro Swing, Jazz Funk, Latin, Detroit Techno, Hip Hop, Broken Beat and Disco. What condition the dancefloor will end up in is anyone’s guess. The Moon Dance Silent

Improvement Appeal

A PLAN to repair, restore and enhance The Cut, Halesworth. The Cut has now been a home for the arts in Halesworth for almost 20 years. Two decades of providing the local community with a centre for live performance, music, film, dance, classes, or simply a place to have a chat and a coffee. With all those comings and goings it's no wonder the building is showing its age. In 2019 we are aiming to raise £100,000 to pay for repairs and improvements so we can continue to provide Halesworth with the best possible venue for 2020 and beyond. You are invited to the '2020

Vision' Launch Party on Friday 5th July. Come and join us for a special evening at The Cut. Drinks, snacks, information and ideas, a film of how we started and how far we have come, with live music. email: boxoffice@newcut.
