Jake Bugg to headline hometown festival
Jake Bugg will headline a festival in his hometown Nottingham this summer.
The 18-year-old singer song writer has announced he will play at the city’s Splendour Festival, as well as already confirmed Leeds and Reading dates.
Bugg is also nominated alongside alt-J and Rita Ora for British Breakthrough Act at this year’s Brit Awards.
Splendour Festival promoter George Akins said: “Jake is literally the hottest new artist in the country by a mile at the moment so it’s a real coup to have him headline the biggest gig in his home city this summer.
“The whole of Nottingham will be turning out in their thousands to watch the most successful musician we’ve ever had play his homecoming gig at the Splendour festival.”
