Beach Party Lineup
After smashing their performance at Congress 3 years ago, Duke have only got bigger and better. This extraordinary live show is an energetic and uplifting blast through popular music, packed with beatboxing and vocal basslines but absolutely no sampling, no looping and no effects. One continuous mix, hit after hit, all performed with just three mics and one guitar!
Put your headphones on, choose your channel and get ready to party till the early hours. Got a favourite song or party anthem? Tell us on Twitter or Instagram using #bsavabanger and we'll add to the special delegate playlist!
