Massive Attack formed in Bristol, in the west of England, in 1988 and became the standout act in the city’s influential trip-hop movement, which also included acts such as Portishead and Tricky. Taking influences from hip hop, reggae and soul, the outfit pioneered a hypnotic, bass-heavy sound and produced some of the ’90s best-loved dance anthems, such as Unfinished Sympathy and Karmacoma.
“We’ve been working on Massive Attack for many years now,” says Clockenflap music director Justin Sweeting. “Although we’ve had opportunities in the past to bring out different iterations of their show, including the DJ format, we’ve always preferred to wait until we could present the full-blown live show for maximum impact.”
“It’s a big, visual production with 11 people performing on stage, which will make for a truly spectacular finale to close the 2017 festival on the main stage.”
