Posted on 18 May 2011 by Mizzle

As the festival becomes closer and more acts are announced in the line-up, we have heard from the organisers of this year’s Big Chill Festival that acclaimed video artist Chris Cunningham has been confirmed to close on Sunday at the Deer Park Stage.

Cult film-maker, musician, photographer and producer Chris Cunningham is responsible for some of the most iconic music videos ever made, amongst a myriad of other accomplishments.

He has been dubbed ‘Dangerously ahead of his time’ by The Guardian and ‘A startlingly original visual artist’ by The Telegraph. On the back of a sold out show at the Royal Festival Hall in May last year and recent collaborations with Gil Scott-Heron and Grace Jones, Cunningham returns to the stage this summer.

He will be closing the Deer Park Stage on Sunday, following the set by headliners Rodrigo y Gabriela. Cunningham will create a sight and sound spectacular, bringing The Big Chill to a close in true style.
