L Fest just announced that its second headliner will be Saffron, the lead singer of Republica, and she will be taking the stage on Saturday July 16th. She has been added to the roster after last month’s announcement that Heather Peace will be performing. We expect many more acts and performers to be released in the coming couple of months.
The official press release reads: “Formed in the early 90’s, Republica achieved sales of over 3 Million Albums going Top 5 in the UK, US and Europe and achieving Platinum Sales Worldwide. The track ‘Ready To Go’ went to No. 1 in 18 countries and has been featured in Hollywood movies, TV Shows and in International advertising campaigns. ‘Drop Dead Gorgeous’ was used as the theme to ‘Scream’, the Wes Craven Horror Movie and ‘Beauty Never Fades’ by Junkie XL ft. Saffon reached No. 1 in Poland.”
“Saffron has performed vocals for The Prodigy’s Fuel My Fire, worked with The Cure, appearing on the single Just Say Yes from their Greatest Hits album and she also collaborated with Junkie XL for his 2003 album.”
Festival Director Cindy Edwards added: “We are delighted to add Saffron to the Line up as she is such a strong female singer songwriter and a great gay icon from the 90’s. She has been so supportive of our work that I can’t wait to work alongside her in promoting the festival. She has sold millions of albums worldwide so to get her at L Fest is fantastic. She will be performing with front woman of Auxesis Mel Sanson and I cannot wait for them to rock the stage on Saturday 16th!”
