Rag’n’Bone Man and All Saints will join headliners Manic Street Preachers and The Specials at Splendour Festival in Nottingham this July.
Rag’n’Bone Man will perform on the Main Stage at the Wollaton Park music festival on July 20. All Saints, one of the biggest girl bands that the UK has ever produced, will headline the Confetti Stage.
Rag’n’Bone Man – real name Rory Graham – broke onto the music scene with his debut single “Human” in 2016, which became a major hit across Europe.
His UK number one debut album, of the same name, also features the single “Skin” and became the decade’s fastest-selling debut album so far by a British male, outselling those of Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran.
The baritone singer-songwriter is a triple Brit Award winner and is currently enjoying UK Chart success with the dance-electronic hit “Giant” – a collaboration with Calvin Harris.
This will be his first performance in Nottingham since his show at Rock City in April 2017, which sold out in less than two days.
All Saints are beloved by a whole generation of fans who grew up with them in the nineties. After a 15-year hiatus, the band reformed in 2016 with the original lineup – Melanie Blatt, Shaznay Lewis, Natalie Appleton and Nicole Appleton – and released fresh material, including UK Top 10 Album ‘Red Flag’, and played a show at Rock City during their UK tour in December.
The Confetti Stage at Splendour is in partnership with Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies in Nottingham.
Craig Chettle, Chief Executive at Confetti, said: “We are delighted to be back supporting Splendour. It offers our music, games and media students unrivalled opportunities to gain real industry experience working alongside some of the best crews in the business.
“Throughout 2019 we are marking Confetti’s 25th anniversary and I can think of no better place to celebrate than at one of the country’s best music festivals.”
Councillor Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Localities at Nottingham City Council, said: “Splendour 2019 is shaping up to be another brilliant, family-friendly event in Nottingham. This year’s line-up will have something for everyone.”
There will again be a ticket discount to city residents, with £10 off adult tickets for those who live in Nottingham.
Tickets can be bought from the festival website or in person from the Nottingham Tourism Centre. To claim Nottingham City resident discount, a copy of your council tax bill is required.
