Famous for number-one hits including ‘Mama Do (Uh Oh, Uh Oh)’ and ‘All About Tonight’, four-time BRIT Award nominee Pixie Lott is a welcome addition to the Saturday bill and sure to gather crowds and ignite the festival party.
British band Rak-Su, who rose to fame after winning X Factor, , will have the crowds’ hearts ‘beating rápido’ on Saturday. Childhood friends Ashely, Jamaal, Myles and Mustafa became the first male band in the show’s history to take the winning title in 2017 and are without doubt a must-see at this year’s festival.
