Organisers of Endeavour Festival in Middlesbrough have put together an all-female superstar line up for this year’s event, showing that North East girl power is going to dominate Endeavour.
After releasing details of Endeavour Presents: Rita Ora in Middlesbrough’s Stewart Park on Friday 24th August, along with support from Louisa & Hannah Jane Lewis, organisers have now finally shared the much-anticipated full line-up.
2016 was a milestone year for UK R&B girl group M.O. The announcement of a deal with Polyder Records (RAYE, Mura Masa, Years & Years) and Interscope in the US fell right on time and richly deserved following their first Official Top 20 single “Who Do You Think Of” which raced to silver status, selling over 300,000 copies. Only Dua Lipa and Anne-Marie can boast similar breakthrough numbers; it was truly a huge statement from a trio who have been rightfully bubbling on the UK’s tastemaker underground since 2013.
19-year-old Kara Marni has been infatuated with music for as long as she can remember. With her adolescent years being sound-tracked by classical soul artists, it was on the school run while hearing her mum playing Minnie Riperton’s Loving You that her interest in music was fully realised. From that moment, Marni spent hours listening to the track, hoping one day to mimic the iconic whistle register with which Riperton is synonymous with.
This is a full female line-up, with M.O & Kara Marni joining Rita Ora, Louisa & Hannah Jane Lewis!
The event takes place at Stewart Park, Middlesbrough on Friday 24th August.
