The group join Solange, Chance The Rapper, BROCKHAMPTON, Loyle Carner, Lizzo, Annie Mac, Four Tet, Slowthai, Green Velvet, FKJ, Ross from Friends, Children Of Zeus, Jayda G, Cupcakke, Krystal Klear and Solomon for the festival held on July 12 and 13 in London’s Gunnersbury Park.
Cypress Hill released their last record, ‘Elephants on Acid’, in 2018. NME’s review said that the act’s ninth album is “one for the hardcore fans only…a relentless odyssey into the weird.
When it’s great, we see exactly why the world first pricked up its ears in 1991. But those moments are sadly overshadowed by a barrage of tracks that become increasingly surreal and tedious as the record progresses.”
Meanwhile, Cypress Hill rapper B-Real will headline Boomtown festival this August as part of Prophets of Rage, his supergroup side project with members of Public Enemy, Audioslave, and Rage Against The Machine.
