The label also works with a number of artists including Peyton, The Bassmonkeys, Eric Kupper, The Fierce Collective, Bonnie Bailey, Fac15 and many more.
Mark will be accompanied by Louise Evans also known as Lady V, one of the most in-demand celebrity saxophonists in the UK. Her unique talent has taken her around the world from the UK to Australia and all points in-between. She has appeared at some of the worldʼs greatest nightclubs and exclusive VIP events and is the leading resident saxophonist with Fierce Angel.
Soraya Vivian is the lead singer of Fierce Angel and is known officially as ʻʼThe Fierce Divaʼʼ, appearing at key events and singing on numerous tracks exclusive to Fierce Angel including “If You Could Read by Mind” “Where I Stood”, “When Iʼm Dancing”, “Self Control” & “Hold Onto Our Love”.

The video promoting the single was aired non-stop on UK Dance Channels for 18 months and to this day remains a club classic. With her powerful voice and high-energy performances, itʼs no surprise Soraya is ripping up dance floors the world over.
8KY 6LU of the duo LMFAO will be turbo-boosting the high-octane party celebration on Race Night. As well as being a Grammy nominated artist, DJ (with residencies in both Miami & Atlantic City), singersongwriter and producer, Sky is a walking party; a wiggler and shuffler to the fans delivering non-stop club action with a distinct knack for artistic creation setting his largerthan-life “party rock” persona. In the Spring of 2007, LMFAO was born, and since then the group has collaborated with artists such as The Black Eyed Peas, David Guetta, Pitbull, Katy Perry and Lil Jon. The party rock lifestyle was an LMFAO created movement and although Sky Blu isnʼt leaving LMFAO behind, the Party President is all 8KY 6LU. “The Party President is here to inspire the world to have fun,” 8KY 6LU says. Yes, itʼs a fun similar movement to the “Party Rock” lifestyle, but 8KY 6LU wants the world to get to know him better.
Party Rock Anthem topped the Billboard Hot 100 for six consecutive weeks, and went #1 in over 19 countries. The video has garnered over 885,000,000 views on YouTube and sold over 8 million copies in the U.S. alone. The second single off the album, “Sexy and I Know It,” also went #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, selling over 6 million copies and reaching over 325,000,000 video views.
In the 2012 Super Bowl, LMFAO performed alongside Madonna in the largest viewed Super Bowl in NFL history! Resident Podium Lounge DJs Miles Slater (music director of premier private-members club Boujis) and Patrick Oliver (famed for his two year residency at Pangaea – Marina Bay Sands) will be on the decks throughout the weekend alongside world famous Cuban percussionist Pablo Calzado, the celebrity DJs and live vocal performers.
From the pit lane to the catwalk, the excitement continues as International Style Icon Carol Chen presents ʻThe Fashion Circuitʼ.
