As well as chart-topping hits, Party in the Park has teamed up with BBC Introducing to showcase an array of rising stars as heard on local BBC Radio & BBC Radio 1. The up-and-coming artists they’ll be featuring will be announced soon…

The eclectic line-up also includes local acts like Kiyra Vidal, Scarlet Thomas, and Maystones. As well as entertainment from comedian, Simon Brodkin, best known for his chav character and public pranks such as passing Teresa May a P45 form.

CEO of ITVET Ltd, Daryl Fuller, said: “We’re delighted to have such an incredible line up. I’m so pleased that we have managed to secure headline acts to perform on the day alongside some truly talented up and coming artists. Our producers have worked really hard to make sure we were able to showcase local acts because community is at the heart of this event. It sure will be a day to remember!”
