RETURNING BY POPULAR DEMAND A cappella stars The Magnets are one of the must see acts on the current British music scene. Literally a ‘six-man sound machine’, their music fuses glorious vocal harmonies with jaw dropping beatboxing to create a sound as rich as any band. The Magnets return to Lakeside hot from an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival and high profile appearances on Comic Relief and the TMobile ‘Life’s for Sharing’ a cappella flash-mob commercials. This is a show that will change the way you think about vocal harmony. Highlights include a sultry version of ‘Lost in Music’ by Sister Sledge, an electrifying mash up of New Order’s ‘Blue Monday’ and Rihanna’s ‘Only Girl (In The World)’ and one of The Magnets’ trademark show-stopping A-Z medleys, all delivered via a multiplicity of styles and vocal stunts, cool moves and superb theatrics, but absolutely no musical instruments. “A sonic phenomenon you have to see and hear to believe...they’re a band to watch in 2011.” The Guardian
