Urban pop superstar Labrinth will headline a Hainualt festival this summer and perform to 10,000 music lovers.

Now in its third year, High Definition 2013 will return to Forest Farm, Forest Road, promising to be the biggest event yet after organisers managed to secure the talented singer/songwriter.

Fresh off his UK tour with Plan B and Rudimental, Labrinth is the ultimate showman and he is lined up to perform a set full of his huge hits including Pass Out, Let The Sun Shine, Earthquake, Last Time and more.

The young artist has previously collaborated with the likes of Tinie Tempah, Emeli Sande and Wretch 32 since he exploded on to the scene in 2010 and was subsequently signed to Simon Cowell’s Syco label.

His blend of R’n’B, hip hop and dubstep have marked him out as a key player in UK music and High Definition were excited to make the announcement that he was lined up today.

The unique festival has been acclaimed for its jaw-dropping production, which has rivalled some of the biggest events in the world.

High-end sound systems, full-colour laser systems, pyrotechnics, CO2 cannons, stadium glitter launchers and hundreds of moving lights are set to illuminate the Redbridge skyline.

Pendulum, Ms Dynamite and Fedde le Grand were among the acts who performed at last year’s event and this year is set to be another sell-out.

Many more exciting names across all electronic genres will be announced soon, festival organisers say.

Tickets are available now at for the June 29 event.
