Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Fusion Festival organisers have announced the completed line-up for 2019’s festival.
Joining the bill on the Saturday of the weekender will be Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt, alongside Liverpool DJ and producer Anton Powers.
Don’t Call Me Up hitmaker Mabel will perform at Fusion on the Sunday, where she’ll be joined by up and coming boy band New Rules.
The new additions join an already jam-packed line-up full of pop talent.
Rudimental and Little Mix will take on headline duties at the festival.
The line-up will also welcome appearances by Dizzee Rascal, John Newman, Jonas Blue and Sigala on the Saturday, with Anne-Marie, Clean Bandit, Rak-Su and Hrvy joining Little Mix on the Sunday.
Finding fame as the first group to win the hit ITV talent competition The X Factor, Little Mix have cemented themselves as one of the biggest names in pop, reaching the top five on the official UK album chart with all of their five albums to date.
Saturday headliners Rudimental have been making waves since they smashed to the top of the singles chart with the John Newman featuring Feel The Love in 2012. Newman himself will also be appearing at Fusion Festival on the same day as the electronic four-piece.
Rudimental released their third studio album, Toast To Our Differences, in January of this year, reaching No.5 on the official UK album chart and unleashing the Jess Glynne, Macklemore and Dan Caplen featuring No.1 single These Days.
Celebrating some of the biggest and best in UK pop, Fusion Festival will also welcome grime pioneer Dizzee Rascal, who dropped the boundary smashing Boy In Da Corner in 2003, and most recently unveiled Raskit in 2017.
English singer-songwriter Anne-Marie joins the bill on Sunday 1 September 2019 following last year’s debut album Speak My Mind and hits such as Friends, 2002, and her Rockabye collaboration with fellow Fusion Festival artists Clean Bandit.
Producer and DJ Jonas Blue, internationally renowned DJ Sigala, X-Factor winners Rak-Su, and singer and presenter Hrvy will also perform.
“We’re blown away by the calibre of artists playing at Fusion Festival 2019,” Rak-Su say. “We’re buzzing to be on the line up with people like Little Mix and Clean Bandit. Liverpool crowds are always awesome so we can’t wait to get on stage this summer.”
Moving away from its former Otterspool Promenade location into a larger space, Fusion Festival will take place at Liverpool’s Sefton Park on Saturday 31 August and Sunday 1 September 2019.
Separate tickets are available for each day.
