CocknBullKid, The Pipettes and Frankmusik (DJ) added to Macmillian’s Big Mix


Macmillan’s Big Mix have announce that CocknBullKid, The Pipettes and Frankmusik (DJ) are the latest acts to sign up to the one day metropolitan music festival on Saturday 18 June.

Street-tough electro-popper CocknBullKid will be bringing her feisty-yet-funny tunes to the same Rich Mix stage as the cheeky retro-inspired girl group The Pipettes. The Shoreditch venue will also play host to Brit-nominated guitar hero Newton Faulkner; voice of 2011 Clare Maguire and the folk rockin’ Treetop Flyers, as well as a handpicked selection of some of the best new sounds around.

Over at The Light Bar, DJ sets are the order of the day with the likes of BBC Radio 1 DJ Edith Bowman, Charlatans front man Tim Burgess, Zero 7’s Sam Hardaker, Frankmusik and production whiz kid Duff Disco on the decks.

For those looking for an unplugged ambient experience, the rooftop bar at the Queen of Hoxton will be the perfect place to kick back and relax for an afternoon of acoustic sets followed up with a Silent Disco.

Fancy a laugh? Head down to Concrete or the Comedy Café to check out some of the best award winning comedians around – whether it’s the all-pervading madness of comedienne Diane Spencer, cult comedy star Kevin Eldon or their comic compadres Steve Hughes , Robert White and Helen Arney there’ll be something for everyone.

The Big Mix is taking over many more venues across Shoreditch including live acts, entertainment and a fashion market at Spitalfields; Cabaret at the Brickhouse; hip hop, live art and karaoke with Le Scratch at Cargo, a Bangers and Mash party at 93 Feet East and nights curated by Tony N from creative music agency Burntprogress at Vibe Bar and Raw Power at The Macbeth.

For all the latest information, including a list of the acts as they’re announced and advance tickets for just £20, see or join and follow @bigmixfest on Twitter.

Macmillan hope to make £40,000 from The Big Mix and all proceeds will help make the difference between a good and a bad day for people affected by cancer, through giving practical, emotional and financial support.
