Potato Head presents Dean Blunt (DJ Set), Vegyn, John Glacier and pigbaby

On 26 August, Potato Head welcomes a selection of UK artists whose uncompromising creativity has catapulted them towards cult status in recent years, as Dean Blunt, Vegyn, pigbaby and John Glacier head to the Desa with their genre-defying sounds.

Each of these artists has emerged from the depths of the underground to achieve international acclaim in recent years. Celebrated producer and PLZ Make It Ruins label boss Vegyn made his debut at the Desa at one of last year’s Headonism events and we’re thrilled to welcome him back for a follow-up appearance. Avant-garde artist and mystery man pigbaby once again joins the tour – after his debut material recorded during lockdown led to Vegyn signing him to the label roster– while iconic singer-songwriter, prolific producer, and contemporary artist Dean Blunt flies in to showcase his hard-hitting sonic repertoire. Completing a fascinating lineup is enigmatic London rapper – and Plz Make It Ruins alumnus – John Glacier, who flies in to perform her deeply personal stream-of-consciousness raps over trademark lo-fi beats.

The event takes place in the intimate setting of our Studio Eksotika venue, so expect groundbreaking music served up close and personal from some of the UK music scene’s most exciting talents.

Limited capacity event. Come early.
