Support for Anderson .Paak came from talented singer/songwriter Tayla Parx. Her infectious happy and colourful performance (amongst giant inflatable flowering cacti) was well received and warmed the crowd up a treat. You will have definitely heard Parx’s songs before as she has some impressive songwriting credits under her belt (Ariana Grande, Janelle Monae and Panic! at the Disco to name a few). Her debut album We Need to Talk comes out in April and features the fantastic ‘I Want You’.
