Blissfields Festival have today announced a surprise addition to this years line up, Charlotte Church.
Following the announcement this week that Bastille and King Charles were added to this summer’s Blissfields Festival line-up, organizers are thrilled to announce that the multi-platinum-selling Charlotte Church has been confirmed to make a very special appearance at Hampshire’s longest running boutique music festival. With a capacity of just 2,500 and boasting a line-up that consistently features every buzz indie band of the moment, Blissfields Festival will be Charlotte’s most intimate festival performance ever, and a chance for her to showcase a raft of new material with a full band in a truly unique environment.
Having won a Classical BRIT Award for Artist of the Year, a British Comedy Award for Best Female Newcomer, a GQ Award for Woman of the Year, and following six acclaimed, top 40 albums as well as a career in television – it’s safe to say that the 26 year old Church is as big a household name as Stephen Fry or cucumber sandwiches. Organizers have said they are “delighted when Charlotte approached us to preview new material at the event. We’ve always upheld the belief that Blissfields should be a place for all kinds of music, both emerging and established, and we know she’ll put on a quality show that everybody will enjoy. We’ve already confirmed pretty much all of our bill, but found a way to make this work – and of course we’re really excited by the announcement”.
Also announced is 12 year old Lauren Thalia. A local to the festival, she recently stole the judge’s heart in the audition stages of Britains Got Talent, and performed at the live semi-final to a television audience of 7 million people with her version of ‘Earthquake’.
Charlotte Church and Lauren Thalia joins the likes of The Noisettes, Patrick Wolf, Dreadzone, Man Like Me, Pronghorn, Guillemots, Bastille and Spector on this years bill which kicks off at Woodmancott Farm near Winchester on June 28th.
