eFestivals can exclusively reveal Asian Dub Foundation will headline this year's Alchemy Festival happening from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th September.

Also recently confirmed are Space Ritual, One Eyed God, Pro-Gram, AOS3, Inner Terrestrials, The Firepit Collective, Tarantism, Cracked Actors, Ask My Bull, Dub The Earth, Jake and the Jellyfish, Lunarsonic, and Zetan Spore.
Organisers say, " Asian Dub Foundation will headline Alchemy 2015! We've been trying to find a band that would fit with the vibe and ethos of Alchemy - and we think we've done it! Asian Dub Foundation, midi warriors of the 21st century! Their unique sound is a combination of hard jungle rhythms, dub bass lines, industrial, energetic punk rock guitars, sitar and haunting sounds sampled from traditional Indian music, supported by militant, fast and burning rap-ragga lyrics !
"They've just completed their new and most anticipated album ever titled 'More Signal More Noise', available all over the world from 4th of May 2015 on Believe Recordings: it promise to be a real sonic revolution, back to the real dub and militant sound of the band with a new approach, due to the return of mastermind musicians such as bassist and founder Dr Das, drummer Rocky Singh, the Jamaican singer Ghetto Priest, and with the new entry of flute/beatboxer Nathan Lee. The fit with what we're trying to achieve at Alchemy seems seamless!"
Musically its diverse but well programmed with most music tastes catered for someplace or other on the site at Scholey Park, 1 mile from Coningsby & Tattershall, Lincoln in Lincolnshire.
Tickets are priced at £90 for an adult weekend ticket. An under 16 ticket is priced at £20. Under 5's are free and don't require a ticket, but will need to be registered.
