James, Bananarama, Jess Glynne and more join The Specials for Splendour 2015

20th March 2015  |  Category:  Announcements, Festivals, Nottingham

We have been working hard behind the scenes with Nottingham City Council and Confetti to bring the perfect mix of long-loved heritage acts alongside contemporary pop artists to cater for all the family for Splendour Festival 2015.

This year we are excited to reveal a truly stellar line-up headlined by two-tone revivalists The Specials. The all dayer set in the beautiful grounds of Wollaton Park will also see incredible performances from anthemic hit makers James, one of the best all female pop bands of all time Bananarama, singer of the moment Jess Glynne, pop rockers Lawson, Birmingham indie-rock outfit The Twang and many, many more musical acts across three fantastic stages.

The popular Funhouse Comedy stage compered by amiable cheeky-chappie Brummie Andy Robinson will once again be entertaining the crowds throughout the day with the likes of Ian D. Montfort, Christian Reilly, Ellie Taylor, John Robertson and brilliant young musical comedy duo Jollyboat.

The entertainment doesn’t stop away from the main stages either with loads for children on offer including fairground rides, and a free kid’s area hosted by Big Top Mania, featuring circus skills workshops and shows, crazy inflatables, giant bubbles and Big Bear’s Big Balloon Disco.

Councillor Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Sport and Leisure at Nottingham City Council, said: “It’s great to see more much-loved groups being added to the Splendour line-up. We’re looking forward to a fantastic family summer day out in the beautiful surroundings of Wollaton Park.”
