Splendour, celebrating its 15th edition in Nottingham’s Woolaton Park in July, has annouced the acts that will join already-announced headliners, Noel Gallaghers High Flying Birds and Madness.
Joining Madness, Rudimental and Sugababes on Saturday main stage will be Everything Everything, Venbee, James Marriott and Girlband.
The Vaccines headline the Confetti Stage on Saturday along with The Coral, Cian Ducrot and Betty Boo, as well as Razorlight frontman Johnny Borrell’s new band Jealous Nostril.
On Sunday, DYLAN and Vicky McClure and Our Dementia Choir join Noel Gallagher, The Kooks and Confidence Man on the Main Stage, with The Royston Club and The Chase opening. Jake Shears and Inspiral Carpets join headliner Sam Ryder and Altered Images on the Confetti Stage.
Also added to the bill are a host of rising national acts and local favourites on the Courtyard Stage each day, including Nottingham band Divorce who are tipped as ones to watch, and we wouldn’t argue with that after catching their set at DHP’s Beat the Streets festival.
DHP’s Director of Live Anton Lockwood said: “By expanding across two days and securing our legendary headliners Madness and Noel Gallagher, we had a unique opportunity to book amazing new talent and contemporary acts such as DYLAN, Venbee, Cian Ducrot and lots more. We’ve added a host of viral chart topping acts who are making waves on Radio 1 this year to give a fresh perspective to the bill, in addition to all the iconic and classic festival acts for which Splendour is known.”
The Confetti Stage at Splendour is in partnership with Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies, a leading provider of creative industry education.
Craig Chettle MBE, Chief Executive Confetti, said: “We’re thrilled to once again have Confetti artists join the festival line-up alongside legends like Noel Gallagher and Madness! Acts include student band Luna & The Lime Slices who won our recent Battle of the Bands in front of a sell-out crowd at Metronome for a coveted spot on the Confetti stage.
“It will be incredible seeing them perform, alongside our other talented Confetti acts: Courtney Mark, Airport Dad, Lyvia and Cam Mannix, who’s flying high off the back of recording this year’s Confetti/Denizen single with producer Mikko Gordon (Arcade Fire, The Smile, Gaz Coombes). We’re all about making sure students get the best chances to ‘Do It For Real’ and where better to learn than on stage at Splendour in front of thousands!”
