Wild Life Festival 2017

Electronic duo Disclosure, who have held Wild Life festival in Shoreham for the last three years, have said that due to a ‘busy recording schedule ahead’ they have made the decision not to hold the event this year.

They promise the festival will return ‘bigger and better’ in 2019.

In a statement, they said: “Being able to curate your own festival with your mates and invite legends like NAS, Ice Cube and Chaka Khan to play alongside amazing new talent such as Stormzy, Kaytranada and AJ Tracey, stack them up against a host of flawless DJ’s like Annie Mac, Jackmaster and ARMAND VAN HELDEN and throw parties with elrow is literally a dream come true.

“However, with a busy recording schedule ahead as we embark on album number three we’re going to give the green grass of Shoreham Airport a break throughout 2018 and come back bigger and better in 2019.

“Thanks to everyone who attended the festival these last three years and gave us some of the best times we’ve ever had as Disclosure, we’re hugely thankful for the opportunity to share that with you, see you all soon.”
