L Fest, the UK’s only lesbian music, arts and comedy festival, welcomes the front woman from one of the most iconic 90’s rock bands.
Republica achieved sales of over 3 million albums – going top 5 in the UK, US and Europe and reaching platinum sales worldwide. The track ‘Ready To Go’ went to No. 1 in 18 countries and has been featured in Hollywood movies, TV Shows and in international advertising campaigns.
A festival favourite throughout Europe, Saffron has been in demand as a vocalist, collaborating with The Prodigy, The Cure, Junkie Xl, Gary Numan, Jeff Beck, Jah Wobble, N-Joi, Mark Moore, St Etienne and The Shamen.
Festival Director Cindy Edwards commented: ” We are delighted to add Saffron to the line-up as she is such a strong female singer songwriter and a great gay icon from the 90’s. She has been so supportive of our work that I can’t wait to work alongside her in promoting the festival. She has sold millions of albums worldwide so to get her at L Fest is fantastic. She will be performing with front woman of Auxesis Mel Sanson and I cannot wait for them to rock the stage.”
Headlining a solo set on the Big Top Stage Saturday 16th July, Saffron will be accompanied by a full backing band.
Now in it’s sixth year and with a host of acts and activities to suit all tastes, L Fest is held at Uttoxeter Racecourse, Staffordshire 15 – 18th July 2016.
Second tier tickets are now on sale, but these are expected to sell out quickly. The next tier price will be £110, and £120 on the door so the sooner you buy the bigger discount you get. More names and acts will be announced over the next month.
