Fatboy Slim has released a Rocky-inspired video of himself in training for his Friday night headline spot at Wild Life Festival, the event created by Disclosure and Rudimental in 2015.
The video sees him running from his home, passing some of Brighton’s most famous landmarks, before finishing on the grounds of Brighton City Airport, which will be the site for Wild Life Festival this year. Training alongside Fatboy Slim in the footage are Shoreham Allstars, a unique collective of young and emerging talent from Brighton, who will be returning for their third year with ‘The Allstars 918 Stage’, featuring over 100 young musicians aged 9 to 18 years old.
Fatboy (real name Norman Cook) has been something of a mascot for Brighton before now, with tens of thousands of clubbers descending on the city for his Big Beach Boutique beach parties; his compilation album ‘Live on Brighton Beach’ reached number 19 in the UK charts in 2002. More recently in 2015 he received an Alumus Award from the University of Brighton.
Headlining Wild Life for the first time this year, Fatboy Slim’s last single ‘Where you iz’ had over 500,000 Spotify streams and has been remixed by Chocolate Puma & Eats Everything. With ten MTV VMAs and two BRIT Awards to date, he’s quite the performer - his Friday night slot at WILD LIFE is not to be missed.
