The Rifles, About Group, Connan Mockasin join Get Loaded in the Park line up


The Rifles, About Group, Connan Mockasin, Spector and Six Nation State have been added to Get Loaded in the Park festival taking place on Clapham Common on the 12th of June. They join previously announced names like Razorlight, The Cribs, Noisettes, Darwin Deez, British Sea Power, Patrick Wolf and Johnny Flynn + many more across three stages.

Coming straight from a huge sell out show at The Coronet last week, The Rifles bring a new look band to Get Loaded in the Park. With a third studio album soon to hit our airwaves, Chingford’s finest look set for an absolutely massive summer with the first chapter written on 12th June.

In the Gigwise Arena, Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor brings his other band About Group to Clapham Common for an exclusive and rare appearance. As a Mercury prize-nominated pop star, Alexis has been responsible for bringing geekery to the dancefloor and will be showcasing tracks from About Group’s second album.
New Zealand born, London resident Connan Mockasin brings his delightful, slanted and enchanted world to Get Loaded in the Park. With music that subverts as it compels, challenges as it mesmerises, and startles as it seduces, Connan is a breath of fresh air that’s not to be missed.

As a live act, Spector categorically tick the box labelled ‘raw energy.’ A vigorous and ludicrously good-looking five piece, they bound and shake about; fusing rawkus energy and effortless panache. A new band unlike any other around right now, we’re thrilled to welcome them to the Common.
Six Nation State are a UK based four-piece who in the past three years have supported bands such as Babyshambles. With their debut album set for release this year we’re delighted to have them on board.

Other Get Loaded in the Park highlights include…
Having stole the show at the recent Camden Crawl, Get Loaded headliners Razorlight return to the Capital for another spectacular performance. Their set at the Crawl featured new tracks alongside the classics we all know and love and resulted in Johnny Borrell telling NME how he felt Razorlight’s return “feels like a new band.”
The Cribs arrive at Get Loaded having destroyed Rockness the previous night with further main stage performances from Noisettes, British Sea Power, Patrick Wolf and Los Campesinos! In the Gigwise arena Darwin Deez plays his only London show of 2011 alongside Yelle, O.Children, Babeshadow and Alpines. Finally The Flower Post host the Last.FM arena with the brilliant Johnny Flynn playing with Slow Club, Sound Of Rum, The Agitator, Beans On Toast, Dark Moon and The Joker And The Thief.

An indie and live bands showcase as strong as you will see in London this year, we hope you can join us on June 12th as Get Loaded in the Park returns in triumphant style.
