Legendary Bristol-based house DJ Mikee Freedom confirmed at VegfestUK Bristol 2018

20th April 2018

Amazing news for everyone looking forward to soaking up the fabulous atmosphere at VegfestUK Bristol this year, as local house DJ Mikee Freedom has just joined the musical lineup of the festival and he will be playing his favourite tunes from the turntable on the Sunday from 7:30 – 9:00pm on the Ujima Live Acts Stage.

Mikee Freedom was a DJ who was around from the start of the acid house scene. His single Nomad Feat MC Mikee Freedom (I Wanna Give You) Devotion reached #2 in the UK Charts and #1 in the US Charts, as well as being a hit in 8 other countries.

Devotion holds the record for the most amount of compilation albums that the track features on. Devotion won best dance track of all time at number 1 spot with MTV & is still one of the most requested dance tracks to be played on virtually every radio station worldwide.

The organisers are obviously over the moon with the announcement and they have included in this blog post a short interview with the legend himself – enjoy!

Interview with Mikee Freedom

So – Mikee – Ashton Gate – 2nd home, no?

Home From Home Yes I am City through & through

You must have been hoping for ‘I Wanna Give you Promotion’ this season…

I have a T-shirt & a Flyer made by fellow City fans with that on lol

What was it like beating Man U? Incredible atmosphere….

Best day of the season & prob one of the best days to witness City at their best

Moving on – Vegfest! Looking forward to it?

Very much so I’ve been in this music game a long time & to get recognition now means everything thanks to Chris Cross & Tim.

Veggie burgers in your fridge?

I just started my diet so who knows I know I have to start eating healthy & plenty of exercise.

It’s got a real Bristol feel about it this year, what with Smith and Mighty, Dr. Meaker, and all the local Ujima acts…

Exactly the way it should be – I wish more big promoters would put Bristol acts DJ’s first.

Fave Bristol act ever? (yourself excluded mind…)

Smith & Mighty

And fave City player ever…?
