SUPPORT ACTS ANNOUNCED FOR JESS GLYNNE AT ALNWICK CASTLE
AN OPEN AIR CONCERT
12TH AUGUST 2017
Hotly tipped up-and-comers KIKO BUN and MULLALLY have been announced to support Jess Glynne at the 12th August concert, having been handpicked by the pop sensation herself. Excitement has been building for the event since it’s announcement; the concert it will see thousands of music fans descend to the grounds of the historic castle for a fun-filled day out.
MULLALLY’s music packs a soulful punch, his sing-along pop vocal arrangements painting vivid pictures in the minds of his listeners. His first 3 releases (Overdose, Troubled Love and Wonderful) have amassed over 6 million streams on Spotify alone and have been championed by tastemakers such as BBC Radio 1 MTV, SBTV and more. A fixture on BBC 1Xtra and regular on the festival circuit, KIKO BUN has been heralded as the ‘Sound of Summer’ with his refreshing and contemporary sound based on the re-emergence of Reggae, Soul and golden era Hip Hop that continues to infiltrate mainstream music.
Anthony Norris, Music Plus Sport Event Director said:
‘We’re looking forward to welcoming Kiko Bun and Mullally to Alnwick Castle on 12th August. Personally chosen by headliner Jess Glynne, they have been tipped as ones to watch and have bright futures ahead of them. We’re excited to deliver an amazing show in such a historic and beautiful setting, and with the addition of these two fantastic acts to the bill they will be sure to get us in the summer spirit prior to Jess Glynne’s show stopping performance.’
