Clean Bandit and Years & Years added to Soundscape line-up
Date: 27 Nov 2018
Chart-topping artists Clean Bandit and Years & Years will be supporting David Guetta at June’s Soundscape Weekender at Ricoh Arena.
The two artists have been added to a star-studded line-up, which already includes Anne-Marie and Mabel, as Coventry gets set for one of the biggest music festivals in the city’s history.
Clean Bandit and Years & Years – who have collectively spent more than 100 weeks in the top ten of the UK charts - will be heading to Ricoh Arena on Sunday 16 June to perform on the second and final day of Soundscape Weekender.
Clean Bandit, who have taken the UK charts by storm over the last four years, will bring their unique brand of electro-pop to the Ricoh Arena to perform chart-topping songs such as Rockabye and Symphony, as well as the Grammy award-winning single Rather Be.
Synth-pop band Years & Years have been firm-favourites on the festival circuit after rising to popularity in 2015 with their breakout hit King.
They have since gone on to land other big-hitting numbers such as Shine, If You’re Over Me and Sunlight.
They will join world-renowned DJ David Guetta and one of the biggest female acts in the UK in Anne-Marie, as well as highly-rated newcomer Mabel on the same day.
“This music festival is all about offering a range of high-calibre acts at a low price,” said Dan Nelmes, Director at Showtime Live, who are organising Soundscape Weekender.
“People can see seven performances from some of the most in-demand artists in the world, plus a 90-minute headline set from David Guetta, for the same cost as going to see a gig featuring a couple of artists.
“Clean Bandit and Years & Years are two of the biggest names on the UK music circuit at the moment and are fantastic additions to the line-up, and we’re incredibly excited to see what they both have in store for us in June.
“We’re getting closer to having our full Sunday line-up revealed with two more artists to announce over the next few days.”
Justine Hewitt, Head of Operations at Ricoh Arena, added: “This city is set for a fantastic weekend of music – the calibre of artists on offer is second to none and is fast becoming the must-see music festival next year – we can’t wait to see who is booked in to perform on day one!”
Tickets for Sunday 16 June are on sale now. Details about tickets for day one on Saturday 15 June – which is dedicated to the indie, rock and alternative genres – will be announced at a later date.
