Katy B who has recently topped the UK charts says ‘I’m looking forward to playing such huge outdoor shows. This will definitely be a summer highlight for me.’ Girl group, Neon Jungle, echoed Katy with ‘We’re so excited to play this festival as we get to perform on the same stage as some of our favourite artists!’

New band Rixton have been causing a stir over the past few months and these shows will be their largest and first outdoor shows to date. They said, “We can’t believe we are playing this festival! It’s going to be the biggest crowd we’ll have performed to, we can’t wait to see all your faces!”
