Africa Exprez join Electric Proms
Africa Express

Africa Exprez have been added to this year's BBC Electric Proms line-up.

The collaborative project, which has seen African musicians team up with Damon Albarn and Franz Ferdinand, will play London Koko on 22 October.

Dance pioneers Coldcut have also been added to the bill at the same venue three days later.

They join Keane, Razorlight, The Last Shadow Puppets and The Streets for the event which is being staged in London and Liverpool.

The five-day music festival, which was held for the first time in 2006, will run from 22-26 October.

The event is normally held around various venues in Camden, including The Roundhouse, KOKO and The Barfly, but this year organisers have decided to expand it further.

Last year Kaiser Chiefs, Bloc Party, Editors, Reverend And The Makers, Mark Ronson, Chemical Brothers and Sir Paul McCartney were among the acts who performed.

Earlier this year, Africa Exprez played a gig in Liverpool with Damon Albarn, Hard-Fi, Franz Ferdinand and Reverend And The Makers.
