Confirmed Acts...

Josephine and The Artizans at Barefoot Festival™ 2019

Josephine and The Artizans - London based HipHopera band that consist of classical strings, operatic vocals, heavy beats and energetic rap.

Classically trained Josephine was growing increasingly tired of the cultural gap between the pop-scene and classical world so she decided to create something which is neither classical or commercial, but a blend of both.

"The Artizans have mastered the merging of classical and modern, resulting in an authentic blend of old and new; and have challenged basic music genres to create their own label of sound." (Adam not Eve)

All adding up to their unique complexities, there’s a little bit of something for everyone, whilst staying true to their sound.

Karina Denike at Barefoot Festival™ 2019

Karina Denike - virtuosic chanteuse Karina Denike will transport you to a decade that never happened—but should have.

Steeped in the lost eras of 1930’s torch songs and Motown, her original songs draw from such influences as doo wop drama, sea shanties, Morricone soundtracks, girl groups and Eastern European lullabies. A focus on performance and obsessed with the voice as an instrument, her lock-solid vocal harmonies can hush rooms with a whisper and break hearts with a shout. Supporting herself on chord organ and vibraphone, and backed by an adventurous San Francisco band of established composers and musicians in their own right;
