Innervisions Festival 2019 presents

Aloe Blacc

+ special guests: TBC

Aloe Blacc is best known for his UK No. 1 hits I Need a Dollar and The Man as well as his vocal on the global hit Wake me Up by Avicii which reached #1 in 103 countries. Raised on salsa, merengue, and cumbia, Aloe Blacc fell in love with hip-hop as a kid and started writing rap songs when he was nine. With his lyrics drawing influence from socially conscious artists like KRS-One, he put out his first hip-hop mixtape at age 17. Later developing a fierce admiration for such soul musicians as Donny Hathaway and Marvin Gaye, he also discovered an affinity for folk-rock singer/songwriters during his college years. One of the most important factors in my transition from hip-hop to being a singer was listening to people like Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Kris Kristofferson, and Cat Stevens, Blacc says.

Tonight will be the first UK concert date for Aloe Blacc since 2011. Book early!
