performing a greatest hits set and tracks from new album Beyond Kismat. Lead front-men Rup and Q have broken music
boundaries between both nations, with a recent appearance on the 4th series of Pakistani music sensation Coke Studio.
Southall born-and-bred Ash King has lived the Bollywood dream in the past 18 months by breaking through the barriers to
perform on some of the biggest film soundtracks. He'll be performing a set with his live band including Suno Aisha (Aisha),
Te Amo
(Dum Maro Dum) and current hit I Love You (Bodyguard).
Hunterz has been one of the most consistent British-Asian performers on the global stage over the past decade with hits
including Rehle and Tere Bin Nahin Laga. We welcome Hunterz on his debut London Mela performance.

(The Lick) and here he presents a set including Joga (performing Ranjha) Toronto's Roach Killa (Yaara Dildaara)
and current House-Bhangra anthem Haas Haas featuring fellow Mancunians Metz & Trix.
Within 12 months Garry Sandhu has cemented his position as most promising Bhangra newcomer through hits
