Splendour Festival 2017
Tel: +44(0)8444 77 5678
Saturday 22 July 2017
Nottingham’s favourite family festival returns to the beautiful setting of Wollaton Park on Saturday 22 July 2017, and tickets are on sale now.
Multiple Brit Award winning, indie-rock band, Kaiser Chiefs have been announced as headliners for this year’s award-winning Splendour Festival, Saturday 22 July 2017!
The Yorkshire quintet are the first of over 40 acts announced to perform at the city’s biggest summer day out at Wollaton Park, and winner of ‘Best Festival’ at the 2016 Live UK Business Awards. With an amazing back catalogue of six albums, including the Brit Award winning ‘Employment’, expect a set of huge sing-along anthems including I Predict a Riot, Oh My God and UK number one single Ruby.
Joining the Kaiser Chiefs at Splendour Festival 2017! will be Busted, one of the biggest homegrown pop acts of the 21st century. Beloved by a whole generation of fans who grew up with them in the noughties, the double Brit Award winning band are sure to go down a storm playing a mix of their unforgettable hits and songs from their third studio album ‘Night Driver’. After a sell-out show at Rock City in February, expect to be taken to the “Year 3000” with a sing-along set from the band with an incredible five million record sales, platinum albums and plenty of hit singles.
Tony Hadley, frontman of 80s phenomenon Spandau Ballet, will also make his mark on the Main Stage. Formed in 1978, Spandau Ballet had multiple chart topping singles and albums all over the world, including international number one “True”. Over the years, Hadley has earned the accolade of being one of pop music’s greatest vocalists. Expect an epic set from a back catalogue of memorable Spandau Ballet hits, including their well-known song “Gold”.
Headlining the Confetti Stage, powered by Nottingham Trent University, will be Grammy Award winning singer Billy Ocean. The “Caribbean Queen” star has sold more than 30 million records and collected a pile of gold and platinum records throughout his hugely successful career. With a string of hits, including “Love Really Hurts Without You”, “Suddenly” and “When The Going Gets Tough The Tough Get Going”, along with last year’s album ‘Here You Are: The Best Of Billy Ocean’ soaring to number four, Ocean will be bringing plenty of crowd pleasers to his headlining set.
Next up, rock band Black Grape, formed by Shaun Ryder and Paul ‘Kermit’ Leveridge after the demise of Happy Mondays, will be bringing their Britpop canon to Splendour. Following a UK tour to mark the 21st anniversary of chart topping debut album ‘It’s Great When You’re Straight… Yeah’, and a fantastic show at Rock City in December, expect a lively set of catchy pop hooks including “In the Name of the Father” and “Reverend Black Grape”.
International treasures, British Sea Power have some remarkable admirers – the late, great David Bowie and Lou Reed were among them as well as ardent fan Daniel Radcliffe! They’ve played on ships at sea, deep inside Cornish slate mines and atop the Great Wall of China, and now, with brand new album ‘Let The Dancers Inherit The Party’ due out at the end of March, the art-rock stalwarts are a fantastic addition to our Confetti Stage line up. Also performing on the Confetti Stage are British punk veterans Buzzcocks as well as rising local stars Bud and Josh Wheatley.
Back over on the Main Stage is incredible British singer-songwriter Gabrielle Aplin. Her unforgettable cover of Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s “The Power of Love” for the John Lewis Christmas TV campaign reached number one in the UK chart. In the whirlwind that followed, Aplin’s debut album ‘English Rain’ charted at number two and has since been certified gold in the UK, selling over 100,000 copies.
Singer-songwriter Georgie is not stranger to Splendour Festival! She has built a strong reputation over the years in the Nottingham music scene, making her first forays at the age of 14. Two years on from her last Splendour appearance, and after supporting Jake Bugg on a triumphant UK tour, the local star is signed to Columbia Records and working on her debut album.
Also performing on the main stage will be folk troubadour Will Varley and soul singer-songwriter Yola Carter.
Headlining the Acoustic Rooms Stage will be musical duo and The Voice UK contestants, Into The Ark, who have been hotly tipped by coach Tom Jones. Further acts across the park will be announced shortly.
Over on the Funhouse Comedy Stage, acts will include: Jim Smallman, Wes Zaharuk, Jollyboat, Steve Royle, Scott Bennett and Barry Dodds.
With lots happening all over the park aside from the three music stages, including comedy in the courtyard, a kids’ area and entertainers out and about in the crowd, Splendour is a fantastic day out for all the family.
