Jarvis Cocker to DJ at the Mighty Boosh Festival

A man that surely needs no introduction is Jarvis Cocker – the platinum-selling, Mercury Music Prize-winning, Brit-Pop deity. Jarvis will be delving into his vast record collection to supply a rump-shaking DJ set for the Mighty Boosh masses in Kent on the 5th July.

Jarvis’ music tastes and influences run far and wide, and he’s put compilation CDs together for the famed ‘The Trip’ series and Rough Trade’s 30th Anniversary compilation. With Jarvis’ musical pedigree, expect to pop along to tunes you know and tunes you don’t – all courtesy of one of the UK’s finest musical talents.

Jarvis will be joining an exceptional line-up of musicians and comedians. On the festival’s main stage, Monkey Hell, there will be Har Mar Superstar, The Charlatans, The Kills, Peaches, White Denim, Robots in Disguise, Gary Numan, and Polar Bear.

Over in the comedy tent, The Velvet Onion, will be Perrier Award Nominee Tim Key, up and coming comedian Paul Sinha, Canadian comic Tony Law, multi award-winning international cult comic Ross Noble, critically acclaimed Scottish comedian Frankie Boyle, plus Matt Holness (Garth Marenghi), Arj Barker (Flight of the Conchords), Greg Fleet, Mark Watson (If.Comedy Award WINNER), Josie Long (If.Comedy Award WINNER) , Paul Foot and Robin Ince (The Book Club).

Becoming one of the first comedy acts to headline their own festival, The Mighty Boosh boys will finale the festival fun with a fantastical comedy extravaganza.

Says Noel Fielding “The line up is finally coming together with all our favourite bands and comic friends. We can’t wait; it is going to be a blast!”
