More big names are expected to be added to the bill ahead of the festival’s special 10th anniversary.
Multi-talented singer-songwriter Paloma Faith – one of the most successful British female artists of the last decade has been announced as the headliner for Splendour this year.
The Brit award winner will grace Nottingham’s Wollaton Park on Saturday 21st July 2018 and is expected to bring a high-energy set.
The Hackney born singer released her fourth album, “The Architect” in November 2017. It stormed to number one in the UK charts. It is currently on course to become her fourth double platinum album in a row, which would make her the first British woman in chart history to achieve this incredible feat.
Organizers are determined to make this year the biggest and best Splendour festival yet and want to replicate last year which saw a sold-out crowd singing their hearts out to Yorkshire band, Kasier Chiefs.
Councillor Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture said: “Nottingham City Council is proud to partner with DHP to stage Nottingham’s stand out music festival of the summer. Over the past 10-years, the event has become bigger and better each time, attracting a wide and varied audience.
“It’s fantastic that Nottingham residents can benefit from a £10.00 discount on full price tickets and I would urge people to grab theirs as soon as possible. I’m sure Splendour will be the highlight on many people’s summer calendars.”
Paloma Faith is the first of over 40 acts announced to perform at the city’s biggest summer day out, with many more artists, comedians and entertainers to be revealed over the coming months.
The festival is fun for all the family, three stages, a kids area, comedy courtyard and a variety entertainment dotted all around the festival.
Children under 11 will once again be admitted free and discounts are also in place for Nottingham residents. A standard ticket is £49, coming down to £39 when the discount is applied. Tickets for Nottingham Residents aged 11-17 are £20. VIP packages are also available.
Tickets can be purchased from splendourfestival.com or in person from the Nottingham Tourism Centre and from Clifton, Ken Martin, Southglade and Harvey Hadden Leisure Centres. Please note that to claim your Nottingham Resident Discount in person you will need a copy of your council tax bill.
