In continuing our ten year anniversary celebrations and making sure that this year’s event is our biggest and best yet, we can today confirm even more stellar artists for #SplendourFest 2018. Joining the likes of Paloma Faith, The Charlatans, Marc Almond and The Stranglers will be two artists that have dominated the UK charts and the very best in upcoming and local talent to kick start your summer.
Pop royalty Sophie Ellis-Bextor brings her huge back catalogue of glittering electro-pop anthems to Splendour Festival 2018. With 6 top ten singles in her arsenal including ‘Murder On The Dancefloor’, ‘Take Me Home’ & ‘Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love)’, Sophie will well and truly bring the party to Splendour this year!
Having released one of the best-known and catchiest songs of the last 20 years, Toploader will take to the Confetti stage at this year’s festival. With a string of top 20 singles and multiple Brit Award nominations under their belt, the three-piece will play songs from their extensive back catalogue including their feel-good summer anthem, ‘Dancing In The Moonlight’.
We will also be showcasing the best in local talent that Nottingham and beyond has to offer. Hotly tipped indie upstarts Ashfields, who have shared stages with the likes of Biffy Clyro and join our Confetti stage whilst over on our Acoustic Rooms stage we’ve added George Gadd, Daisy Godfrey, Katie Cooper, Re Tue and Joey Costello.
In addition to all of the incredible musical talent, we have Comedy in the Courtyard, the Gem Anthems Silent Disco, a dedicated Kids’ area, fringe entertainment and plenty of gourmet food and drinks.
