About the festival
slowthai headlines the Northampton County Cricket Ground in his hometown on 25th September 2021 as he invites fans to Happyland – The Happiest Place in the Universe, where the policy is simple: no smile, no entry.
The rapper will be belatedly celebrating the release of his number one album TYRON alongside some of his favourite artists, including IDLES, Easy Life, Beabadoobee and Pa Salieu in what is set to be a lineup that represents the various facets of the UK music scene in 2021.
In February this year slowthai topped the UK album charts and the UK vinyl charts with his second album TYRON, which has already sold more than double the units of his critically acclaimed, Mercury Music Prize nominated debut Nothing Great About Britain.
TYRON has cemented slowthai's path to being one of Britain’s most revered and celebrated rappers, but his journey has still only just begun.
And this September slowthai's Happyland headline show is already shaping up to be one of the most blistering music events of the year as this hotly-followed UK artist makes a hugely anticipated return to his hometown. Expect there to be fireworks.
