Here is a heads up on this years Respect Festival; an event that is very dear in our hearts, and is growing each year into a major event for Suffolk and the region. The event promotes unity and diversity in the area and combines with the Ipswich Carnival and the organisation 'Love Music, Hate Racism' as well as BBC 1xtra . Last years event was a huge success (See the videos below) but this year is going to be even bigger with the event taking place at the prestigious new Suffolk University Building on the Waterfront (See picture below). As usual there will be a fantastic selection of food, stalls, workshops and more. Last year saw Big Brother Finalist, Darnell Swallow, perform at the stage on the Suffolk College campus and of course acts from Blessed Love Studio who travelled from London and were knocked out by the response from the crowd. Another highlight was performances from young artists from The Waterfront Community Centre's Youth Music Club that BLS helps run.
We already know the identity of this years headliner but are sworn to secrecy, but you can be sure that they are a big star who draws even bigger headlines and......oh i better stop before i give it away!
