  4. K.O.G and the Zongo Brigade – plus support act. This is one of Upfront Arts Venue’s regular live music events. A full standing concert with special seating requirements if needed. K.O.G. & The Zongo Brigade This 9-piece band deliver infectious West African vibes from Ghana via Sheffield, with diverse origins conflating to whip up their signature heady brew of afrobeat, soul, funk and reggae otherwise dubbed “Afro-fusion”. With the leadership of K.O.G, the Ghanaian born force of nature, they are a whirlwind of energy, rhythm and hard hitting musical unity which has been taking the U.K. by storm. Summer 2015 has seen them play the breadth of the UK festival circuit including Glastonbury via their emerging talent competition, via which they were chosen from over 6000 bands to play the massive West Holts stage. Having released their debut, the “Akwaaba” Live EP, and a album in the works, they are garnering increasing attention and quickly growing their fan base – things are looking very good for this exhilarating and exceptional talented band. Plus we have local up and coming band Ponyland warming things up. We are offering a pre concert supper if people would like to come eat before the event. We are serving a full vegetarian main menu with a great selection of desserts as well. Food is being served from 6:30pm Please phone to book a table in advance.

Be warned, last time Sunk played for Glass City they had an audience of gig goers forgetting their cool and dancing around to five. Plainview Lancaster three piece making their Glass City debut.

We will be running drop-in workshops on Saturday and Sunday to rebuild the dragon, have a go at the Samba drums and making your own flame head dress to take away with you. On Sunday, we will have a mini parade here at Rheged at 2.30pm, but you can also join B Jamba on Bank Holiday Monday in Penrith and take pride of place in the "Penrith Lions' May Day Parade" alongside the dancing Green Dragon (Please note, no dragons were harmed during the making of this event – this is a Parade Dragon puppet!).
