Festival newbie RiZE is set to grace the summer of 2018 with a carefully curated lineup as it replaces V Festival at Hylands Park on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th August 2018.

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 BayYears & 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.
