Splendour Festival: The Vamps, Rick Astley and Sleeper join Supergrass and Belinda Carlisle on bill
MORE acts have been announced for this year’s Splendour festival, including The Vamps, Rick Astley and Becky Hill. They join Supergrass, James and Belinda Carlisle on the bill.
Organisers hope the event, due to take place on July 18 at Wollaton Hall, will go ahead, despite coronavirus, since it is still four months away.
The Vamps, who have achieved a huge global success, will be headlining the Confetti stage, performing hits such as Can We Dance, Wild Heart and Last Night.
Eighties superstar Rick Astley stops off at Splendour as part of his Best Of Me tour.
He will be taking to the main stage in the early evening slot when he will be singing hits such as Never Gonna Give You Up and Together Forever, as well as tracks from his comeback album, 50.
Joining him on the main stage will be Becky Hill, who recently supported The Script on their UK tour.
Becky has been listed as the second most listened to British female artist on Spotify in the UK, having notched up over a billion streams and more than 19 million monthly listeners.
After being out of the limelight for more than 20 years, Britpop favourites Sleeper are back performing live and will be on the Splendour bill.
Original members Louise Wener, Jon Stewart and Andy Maclure are joined by Kieron Pepper, previously of The Prodigy.
Sleeper enjoyed huge critical and commercial success in the mid-90s achieving eight top 40 singles across the top ten albums with well over 1m sales.
Expect a soul-searching set of beautiful songs from Amber Run, the indie rock-pop band formed in Nottingham, as they perform tracks from their new album Philophobia.
Once again, opening the main stage will be the winner of the Future Sound of Nottingham contest.
Tickets are on sale now. If the festival has to be cancelled or postponed because of coronavirus, tickets can be used in 2021 or refunded.
