The festival, which takes place from Saturday, July 22 to Sunday, July 23, is being headlined by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Madness with additional performances from acts including Rudimental, Sugababes, The Vaccines, and The Kooks.

Splendour Festival is one of the largest held in Nottingham and this year will mark its 15th year since it began. Last year saw over 23,000 people attend the festival each day. The event has become one of the highlights of the summer season.

Amongst the new additions is everything from comedy, salsa dancing, beatboxing and acapella singing to DJ mashups, lip sync battles and even a musical cult collective. As well as the two main stages, there are smaller spaces for different performances throughout Wollaton Park giving attendees extra choice on who they want to watch.

New acts include: DJ Mr Scruff, ‘King of the Mash-ups’ Jaguar Skills, Beatles Dub Club, musical cult collective House of Life, University of Nottingham Acappella group Double Treble, Beatboxer Alexander ‘Motormouf’ Young, and dance duo Salsa Bae.

On the comedy stage, some of the country’s fastest-rising stars will be performing with comedians who have appeared on Live at the Apollo, Britain’s Got Talent and The Russell Howard Hour.

The summer weekend festival will have five stages: Main, Confetti, Courtyard, Comedy and, the newest addition, On the Hill, which will be located in front of the Elizabethan mansion at Wollaton Park in Nottingham.

The Confetti Stage is in partnership with Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies, a leading provider of creative industry education, and marks the tenth anniversary of the organisation working with Splendour.
