Entertainment Line Up for BritBowl XXV Announced

Some of the UKs most exciting and unique live music acts will be performing at BritBowl XXV – the official championship weekend for the BAFA National Leagues – at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre in September.

THE URBAN VOODOO MACHINE – critically acclaimed by NME magazine – have received rave reviews after performing at major music festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival and Hyde Park. They will perform ahead of the National Leagues Premier Division Final on Saturday September 23.

The nine-piece band uses an array of instruments including the fiddle, banjo, washboard, saxophone and empty bottles. They describe their style as bourbon-soaked, gypsy blues Bop ‘n’ Stroll. They list some of their musical influences as The Clash, Chuck Berry and The Pogues.

They will be joined by human beatbox and hip-hop sensation LIPPICOOL, who has also performed at Glastonbury and recently became the talk of BBC Radio One’s Big Weekends.

Event organiser DREW ANDERSON says: “We are delighted to secure the services of two of the UK 's most exciting up and coming music acts for BritBowl XXV. I am confident the Urban Voodoo Machine and Lippicool will entertain and excite the crowd on hand at Crystal Palace and make it a weekend to remember.

“BritBowl XXV not only showcases the very best in British American football with eight national finals over two days, the event will also be of interest to families and has something for everybody.”

Street dancers from around the world will also be performing at BritBowl XXV over the weekend of September 23-24. International teams competing in the UK leg of The World of Dance Tour will be on hand to entertain American football fans on the Saturday and Sunday.

Fans can enjoy refreshments, including a hog roast, and ladies will be able to visit their own women’s only area. Those looking for thrills away from the hard-hitting action can play the latest computer games in the EA Sports pod or try their hand at a state-of-the-art Formula 1 simulator.

Tickets for BritBowl XXV go on sale on July 31 and can be purchased via Ticketmaster. Admission on both days will be from 12 noon with kickoff times to be announced soon.
