RiZE Festival’s first year’s announcements are started off with the news that RiZE will be headlined by legends Liam Gallagher and Stereophonics. The brand new outdoor festival will take place on the grounds of the historic Hylands Park in Chelmsford. Following 2017’s phenomenal As You Were Liam Gallagher has been on the road seemingly nonstop, and will appear at the festival on the eve of his sold out show at Lancashire County Cricket Club. With Stereophonics appearing at the festival following their appearance at this year’s TRNSMT Festival, they’ll be celebrating not just recently released tenth record, Scream Above the Sounds going gold, but 2018 also marks Stereophonics’ 20th anniversary!
Also included in the first announcement are huge acts such as Manic Street Preachers, Plan B, Craig David, Bastille and Rita Ora. The rest of the line up is made up of other big names; James Bay, Rag’N’Bone Man, Maximo Park, Years & Years, Example + DJ Wire, Circa Waes, Tom Grennan, Lewis Capaldi, Raye, Dave, Tokio Myers, Disciples, MNEK, Jacob Banks, Tom Walker, Nina Nesbitt, Sinead Harnett and The Manor.
With plenty more acts to be announced over four stages, RiZE looks like a strong contender for many festival goer’s choice already!
