Celebrating it’s inaugural year, RiZE Festival features an exciting concoction of genres across four stages at Chelmsford’s Hylands Park on the penultimate weekend of August. Having previously hosted V Festival on the same weekend since 1996, it seems RiZE answers V Festival’s announcement that it would be reintroducing a new festival in early 2018 – although organisers Festival Republic have coined it as a brand new festival.
Having already announced an impressive roster of artists – with Liam Gallagher heading up the bill on the opening night, and Stereophonics on the Saturday – Rize is bound to be one of the in-demand festivals of 2018. Amongst the headline acts, similarly impressive support has been confirmed: Platinum-selling James Bay, Years & Years, alt.rockers Maxïmo Park and up-and-comers such as Raye and Tom Walker will also feature across the 2-day festival.
With more artists to be announced, the full lineup is as follows:
Tickets are priced from £59.50+BF and go on sale at 9.30am Friday 2nd March, see www.rizefestival.co.uk for official outlets.
