Daybrook House Promotions (DHP) is proud to announce James to play at this years City in the Park. They will be supporting international rock star Bryan Adams. The show will take place on Saturday 25th August Bank Holiday weekend (subject to license).
They have joined the list of stars who have played Nottingham’s annual rock and pop festival. Last year saw pop stars All Saints and Ronan Keating performing to over 20,000 fans on the hottest day of the year and over 30,000 saw the Irish phenomenon The Corrs in 1999.
Musical history is littered with bands who have briefly blazed brightly, to sink prematurely into depressing mediocrity as they repeat themselves with ever-diminishing effect. The path James have forged has taken the band in exactly the opposite direction. Endlessly inventive and always taking risks, James have never been satisfied with the easy option. Digging deep into the wellspring of their creativity they released last years Millionaires – the most adventurous and rewarding album of their roller-coaster 16 year career.
The summer’s day long event organised by DHP will include several other high profile artists, as well as other attractions such as street theatre and funfairs to make this a day out for the whole family.
Wollaton Park is the perfect setting for such an event, with the backdrop of the historical 16th century hall, within the grounds of its natural amphitheatre. The location makes for a breathtaking setting with perfect views from all areas of the ten-acre enclosure.
Says Director Andy Copping “We are in discussions with some big name acts to join the bill, it will be an all-day event and we plan to make the entertainment second to none.”
DHP who own several Nottingham venues, including the award winning Rock City, have staged numerous events at Wollaton Park. City in the Park is now on the maib calendar of UK summer festivals and will see many more fantastic acts brought to Nottingham over future years.
This event is subject to license being granted.
