Josephine And The Artizans Bring HipHopera To Priory Park Festival

Fusing hip-hop with classical music, coining the term HipHopera, Josephine and the Artizans will join the line up on Sunday 9th July at the Priory Park Festival, in Chichester.

Growing increasingly tired of the cultural gap between the pop-scene and classical world, classically trained Josephine decided to create something which was neither classical nor commercial, but a blend of both. Josephine & The Artizans were born and immediately attracted attention.

Josephine said: "I hope lots of families come, especially those who say classical and rap can't mix – prepare to be challenged! It also gives us a chance to play before a great audience. 


"The reputation of the Priory Park Festival is growing; appealing especially to musicians who want to do something slightly different. 

"We heard that both The Feeling and Sophie E B played last year, so we were gagging to be on that stage .. we have some new songs to try and some you will recognise, so welcome all!"

Priory Park itself is the ideal setting for such an event. Situated in the centre of Chichester it is framed by old Roman walls and includes a centuries old medieval Guildhall.

Priory Park Festival takes place on 7, 8 and 9 July 2017. For more info CLICK HERE.
