ELECTRONIC MUSIC titans Hot Chip and Leftfield are heading to Cornwall this summer for a full-on dance party.

The alternative dance music masters will be joined by 90s rave heroes 808 State at the Live at Scorrier House one-day dance music festival on Saturday, August 26.

Synthpop outfit Hot Chip, known as the thinking person’s party band, mix the highest strobe-lit euphoria with the most reflective kind of headphones melancholy.

Alongside them will be one of the most influential and innovative dance music acts of all time Leftfield, plus a full live set from dance legends 808 state as well as a selection of other live acts, including The Hempolics and Grace Lightman, and DJs throughout the day. Owen Clarke from Hot Chip spoke to the Voice ahead of the gig.

He said: “We’re super excited to play at Scorrier House and we’re thrilled to be playing alongside the legends that are 808 State & Leftfield. It’s our last UK date of the summer so it’s going to be extra special. “We’ve previously performed in Cornwall at the Eden Project in St Austell back in 2016. That was a great experience. We also played at Boardmasters Festival in Newquay five years ago.

“Both two unique gigs for us. We’d love to stick around and soak up all the great things Cornwall has to offer after the gig but we’ll be travelling back to London soon after our set for a few DJ gigs over the bank holiday weekend.”

Back for its second year after playing host to Groove Armada and Morcheeba last summer, Live at Scorrier House is organised by Newquay based Quick Panda Productions, which is also behind award-winning music festival, The Great Estate at Scorrier House.

A spokesperson for Quick Panda said: “Camping, glamping, camper vans, festival food and VIP silent disco after parties are all on the menu for this sun soaked all dayer. What better way to spend August Bank Holiday weekend than a day and night of fine tunes, food, drink and general merriment in the prestigious grounds of Scorrier Estate.

“Scorrier House is an exclusive country house set within four hundred acres of private parkland and historic gardens. Originally built in 1780 by the mining tycoon John Williams, Scorrier House embodies an important period of Cornish history.

“Home to the Williams family, Scorrier House is renowned for its garden, an evolving timepiece combining winding paths, wild meadows, maintained borders, flowering urns and radiant vistas.”
