This inaugural event, Summer's End, will be headlined by Ocean Colour Scene, joined by very special guests Shed Seven - with more acts set to be confirmed! The band, whose chart-topping anthems include The Riverboat Song and The Day We Caught The Train, are currently celebrating the 20th anniversary of their legendary Moseley Shoals album and will be playing the album in full as revellers bid farewell to the summer.
Ocean Colour Scene, who hail from Birmingham, have a story that is already the stuff of legend – a rip-roaring rock ’n’ folk odyssey set against a backdrop of 21 years of UK pop culture at its very best. Over 23 years, Ocean Colour Scene have notched up nine albums, three of which went Top 5, and a run of nine successive Top 20 hit singles commencing with 1996’s The Riverboat Song. They supported Oasis at their record breaking Knebworth shows that same year, and two years later set sail on the biggest arena tour of any UK band to date.
Shed Seven had five UK top 40 hits in 1996, more than any other act that year. At the peak of their success their seventh single “Going For Gold” entered the UK chart at number 8, followed by a sold out thirteen date tour. Several years later in 2007 the band announced a reunion tour with several major venues selling out within weeks.
As the Britpop revival sweeps the country – this line up has already sold out in several major cities and it’s expected tickets will be in hot demand.
