This year is set to be Live Nation UK’s biggest summer ever, with fans attending over 100 events: 4 million will attend a festival or outdoor event, while nearly 2 million will attend shows at indoor venues across the country. With Harry Styles, Lady Gaga, Eagles, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Billie Eilish all on tour, there are more options than ever for fans.
June kicked off with over 200,000 people at the new Creamfields South and Liam Gallagher performance at Knebworth, over the bank holiday weekend. This weekend was Download festival and Parklife festival which saw more than 300,000 visitors descend on Donington and Heaton Park, with headline sets from Kiss, Iron Maiden, Biffy Clyro, 50 Cent, Chase & Status, Tyler, The Creator and Bicep.
“While 2019 was itself a record year, this summer is tracking to be one for the books. It’s wonderful to see fans reunited with the artists they love and new bands forging their futures. They will not only be attending their favourite festivals but also experiencing five new events that Live Nation has to offer this year in the region,” says Head of Live Nation UK and Ireland, Denis Desmond.
