Award-winning Cornish festival, The Great Estate, announces details of its fourth event programme including live performances from American hip-hop trio The Sugarhill Gang and Welsh rap group Goldie Lookin Chain. Returning to the sweeping green fields of the Scorrier House Estate, the weird and wonderful extravaganza will take place on Friday 29th – Sunday 31st May 2020. Tickets are now available via the website.

Revealing the first headline act of 2020, Cornwall’s iconic music festival will welcome New Jersey outfit The Sugarhill Gang to the main stage on Sunday 31st May. With ‘Rappers Delight’ being the first rap single to become a Top 40 hit, the American superstars also became responsible for the highest selling Hip Hop record of all time. Promising a live show that will span the group’s entire career, fans can expect a stunning set featuring each band member on instruments.

Joining The Sugarhill Gang at Scorrier House in 2020 is South Wales rappers Goldie Looking Chain. Famed for the iconic 2004 tune ‘Guns Don’t Kill People, Rappers Do’, the group, clad in vibrant leisurewear, shot onto the music scene in the early Noughties. Currently, amid a 15th-anniversary tour, Goldie Lookin Chain will be bringing their Newport-inspired lyrics to The Great Estate on Saturday 30th May.

Other confirmed acts include Charli 2na (Jurassic 5), Mr. B The Gentleman Rhymer, Hip Hop Karaoke, Malavita, Indian Man, The Correspondents, Love DeluxX, London Afrobeat Collective, Krafty Kuts, Andy Quick Band, plus many more in the pipeline to be revealed in coming months, including Saturday night’s headliner.

Unveiling what is to be the festival’s most explosive performance to date, The Great Estate is thrilled to welcome the mesmerising Lords of Lightning. As the night sky draws in and the light turns to dark, cracking shards of lightning will fire from the bodies of two knights as they battle atop podiums in the rolling fields of Scorrier House.

Happenings abound for The Great Estate’s 4th anniversary year, including the return of the dazzling Grand Cinematic Experience that had crowds delighted last year, the mystical Woodland Silent Disco, Comedy Club, plus a host of sensational burlesque performances, that will fuse fire-eating, feather and silk fan dancing, and hula hoop.

Festival Directors, Ben Hall and Ian Whittaker comment: “We are incredibly excited to open the gates to The Great Estate in 2020. As the event evolves, it gets more immersive and extra theatrical. We have a selection of ambitious projects in the pipeline and a host of brilliant acts to still announce. We can’t wait to reveal all. Watch this space.”

Campervan, caravan and motorhome pitches must be purchased in advance via the website. Please note The Great Estate operates a tiered ticket system with prices changing over time.

Since the inaugural event back in 2017, The Great Estate has played host to hundreds of bands, DJ’s and artists, thousands of partygoers, four camels, three suffragettes and a group of Mexican wrestlers.
