Level 42 North Sea Sounds

Level 42

After a 37 date sell-out UK and European tour, a tour in Japan and performing at 27 festivals in 2017, Level 42 are back again in 2018. This year, the band will be headlining events in Europe and embarking on a 31-show tour in the UK and Holland, including a date at the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London. We are also pleased to announce that they are the headliners for our North Sea Sounds mini cruise in November. They’ll be choosing a set list from their discography of 14 studio albums. The British Jazz Funk band will be performing on the return crossing of this special mini cruise.

Smoove & Turrell

Geordie soul powerhouses Smoove & Turrell, signed to Jalapeno Records in 2009, they earned two records of the week on Radio 2 with the release of their first album, as well as countless plays on the station, and singer John Turrell has performed alongside Craig Charles on BBC Radio 6 Music.

 They are UK festival favourites and have performed at Space Ibiza and as far afield as Moscow and Dubai. 

In addition to this great line up, a number of special guest DJs will be performing late into the night on the mini cruise.
