BLAX have announced their afterparty headliner for the Fireball Presents: BLAX Xmas Ball on 17 December in Hatfield. It was announced on the 28 November on the Blax Facebook page that Shikari Sound System – the DJing moniker of Enter Shikari – will make an appearance at the event alongside Don Broco.
From tiny hometown shows at The Horn in St. Albans to a Hospitality rave to a two hour neurofunk set with a short segment of Bill Withers mixed in at Slam Dunk Festival, Shikari Sound System can dominate any stage size, but the Forum is a place they are very familiar with. The Forum is part of Hatfield University, which Enter Shikari have seen as both a standalone venue and as part of Slam Dunk Festival South.
If past sets are anything to go by, we can expect a vast array of musical genres being played by Shikari Sound System, from drum and bass, to dubstep, and possibly even some 70s R&B. One can dream that ‘How Will I Know’ by Whitney Houston will make an appearance. I wouldn’t put it past them to include it.
The Hertfordshire quartet will play after the Don Broco headlined gig, DJing between 12am-3am.
