The Human League, UB40 and The Darkness have all been announced as the latest acts to join Jess Glynne on the bill at this year’s Splendour festival.

Jamie Lawson, Turin Brakes, Jeremy Loops and local Nottingham artist Ady Suleiman have also been announced for the main stage at the all-day summer music festival which takes place at Nottingham’s Wollaton Park on Saturday July 23.

Multi-million selling megaband The Darkness will headline the Confetti stage along with The Fratellis, The Rifles, Stiff Little Fingers, Louis Berry, These Your Children and Eyre Llew.

Headlining the Acoustic Rooms stage will be British folk singer Will Varley, who has recently sold out The Bodega and supported Frank Turner at Rock City, followed by Brad Dear, Tom McCartney, Bru-C, Ellie Keegan, Josh Wheatley, Raphael Blake and Lowrie.

Over on the Funhouse Comedy stage, acts will include: John Ryan, Patrick Monahan, Ivan Brackenbury, El Baldiniho, Tom Binns, Vince Atta.

Recognised as the city’s biggest summer day out and shortlisted in the final three for Best Festival in the national Live Music Business awards, organisers DHP Family and Nottingham City Council are keen to replicate the success of last year which saw 20,000 festival goers sprawled across Wollaton Park.

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, the festival is a fantastic day out for all the family.
