Liverpool-born Pixey will be taking the stage in the evening to perform her “euphoric hook-heavy headliner set”. Chester-born artist edbl will also be performing as he returns to the north for a homecoming performance alongside a “superband”.

Edbl describes his sound as “feel-good Soul/R&B-inspired music with some jazz and funk sprinkles on a bed of hip hop drums” topped off with some “incredible featured vocalists”. 11-piece Manchester band Agbeko will also be performing at Cape Cosmic, bringing their afrobeat, brass and West African percussion inspired sound to the festival.
