BETTY BLACK (LIVE PA) - Artist on stage around 4:15pm performing X1 Live set
Known for having one of the most distinguishable voices in modern music, Elisabeth Troy has had a electrifying career since starting out in Jungle and Hardcore in the early nineties, soon becoming a pioneering force to be reckoned with on the underground and mainstream dance music scene. She achieved a massive underground club hit singing on Bass Selective's "Blow out part 2", and a Huge top 40 with the classic 'Greater Love’.
A few years on she further cemented her place as a vocal and writing force with her ground-breaking work with M.J. Cole on the Gold Selling "Sincere" Album and numeral performances on "Top of the Pops" & "Later with Jools Holland". She has shown time and time again that she can turn her hand to any genre and make it her own.
Maintaining a fresh and forward vibe which allows her to explore new musical territories and blur the lines between dance music classics and more traditional singer-songwriter formats, it's no wonder that she's regarded as one of the hottest properties in British urban music today.
AKIN SOUL (LIVE) - Artist on stage around 3pm performing X1 Solo Live set
Born in Dallas, Texas, Akin Soul is a 21-year-old jazz and soul singer, multi-instrumentalist & songwriter from South East London who plays keys, guitar and trombone. Raised on a diet of Marvin Gaye, Stevie, Quincy, Lalah & Donny Hathaway, Amy & Corinne Bailey Rae... In 2018 Akin founded the 12 piece band - Akin Soul & The Soul Tribe who have gone on to perform across London at Glastonbury, We Out Here Festival, Brainchild Festival, Love Supreme, All Point's East, Brainchild, Great Escape.
