Ms Dynamite has been announced as this summer’s final Big D act.
The singer will be joining fellow headliners Dusky, and electropop band Fenech-Soler, at Carnival’D on June 27th.
Ms Dynamite, born Niomi Arleen MacLean-Daley, is a double Brit Award and three time MOBO Awards winning R&B, UK garage, hip hop singer and rapper.
Joel Brocklehurst, Derwent Vice Chair Ents commented, “We booked Ms Dynamite knowing she would be the perfect cherry on top to our already great line up. Having a Mercury Prize winner at Big D [is] something we’re really proud of.” Esther Cameron, a second year sociology student told Nouse, “well that’ll be explosive…I am a big fan.”
The announcement was made in Kuda during the Big D ticket launch on Wednesday night. The club hosted DJs who will be playing at Big D, including Milli Vanilli’s Tim Perera, Harry Jones, Kit Munro and Bangers and Mash’s Chris Ashfield.
The plans for 2013 Big D include four stages of music, a food court and an outdoor silent disco. There will also be an opportunity later in the term for student bands to compete for the chance to perform alongside the headliners. Tickets for Carnival’D go on sale at midday this morning from www.yusu.org/shop.
