Order’s up. We’re dishing out the third artist announcement for Festival One 2016!
Adding a healthy dose of spice, a handful of gritty hip hop bars, mash-ups of all the bangers and a dollop of soul, the Festival One recipe is really starting to take shape. Added to the already delicious line-up of artists, we’re excited to welcome hip hop’s most compelling new talent NF, folk-soul worship artist Ike Ndolo, party starters Late 80’s Mercedes, homegrown worship band Mount Mosaic and purveyors of folksy goodness Paper Cranes.
Find out a little more about the artists below and take a little listen to the tasty tunes they have to offer:
NF’s sound is raw, real, and authentic. Signed to Capitol CMG Label group, the 23 year-old’s raw energy on the mic and lyrical prowess lead to his album Mansion hitting the number one spot in the US Christian chart, number 9 in the US rap chart and millions of youtube views on his singles. Drawing inspiration from real life struggles, his music is simultaneously vulnerable and hard hitting.

Growing up to the ringing of hymns from his mother’s voice and Bob Marley’s songs of struggle and freedom, Ike Ndolo developed a love of music from a very young age. Fringing on folk, his soul filled worship music is the sound of the current church. With two albums under his belt and a powerful purpose found in new song “Make It Loud” you can expect to be touched and challenged by Ike’s music.

“Just as the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, both now and forever.”
Mosaic Music’s main prerogative is releasing people’s potential in Jesus. Passionate about worshipping our Heavenly Father through music the band is a powerful vessel for people to express the praise and worship that is within their hearts.

Late 80’s Mercedes
With a history of bringing the ruckus since 1999, Late 80’s Mercedes will leave you with your feet sore (…from dancing). Blending a range of classic rock and brand new pop bangers, infused with Late 80’s trademark swing, the band never fails to bring the waistcoated, fedora wearing party.

Paper Cranes 折り鶴
Paper Cranes are a small folksy bunch of goodness. Inspired by folk music that harks back to its heady heyday: think old brick fireplaces, good wine, books and conversation; tales of love and loss, heartache and elation, and everyday life.
