Splendour Festival headliners revealed
Manic Street Preachers and The Specials will headline this year’s Splendour festival in Nottingham, on Saturday 20 July 2019.
Manic Street Preachers were in high demand by Splendour fans, bagging the top spot of who they’d like to see at the festival in a survey conducted by the organisers, DHP Family.
George Akins, DHP Family owner, said: “Manic Street Preachers and The Specials are two legendary bands and have made a huge mark on the UK music scene. We’re delighted to have them both with us on the main stage at Splendour celebrating two very special anniversaries. The crowd can expect a belter set of some of their greatest hits.”
Manic Street Preachers and The Specials are the first of over 40 acts announced to perform at Nottinghamshire’s biggest outdoor music event at Wollaton Park, with many more artists, comedians and entertainers to be revealed in the coming months.
Councillor Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Localities at Nottingham City Council said: “Splendour has been a part of Nottingham’s events calendar for over 10 years now, which is a real testament to its popularity with both locals and visitors alike. This year’s festival promises to be another great day out for all the family and, once again, City residents can enjoy £10 off adult tickets.”
