Platinum selling John Newman and Mercury Prize nominee Jessie Ware confirmed as headliners for newly expanded two-day No Tomorrow Festival 

James Bay, Bondax and more cutting edge names amongst first acts confirmed for the festival’s second year

 

  

 

John Newman and Jessie Ware, two of the most successful crossover acts to break through in recent years, are now confirmed as headliners for No Tomorrow Festival, 6th and 7th June, Wollaton Park, Nottingham. Further acts including the BRITS 2015 Critics’ Choice Award winner James Bay will feature in a carefully curated programme of artists across several stages over two days. With tickets now on sale via notomorrowfestival.com, it’s time to party like there’s No Tomorrow.



No Tomorrow Festival will be crowned by a set from John Newman, a Yorkshireman channeling Northern soul into modern pop. Newman’s hits include the number one single ‘Love Me Again’ and guest spots on Rudimental’s ‘Feel The Love’ and Calvin Harris’ ‘Blame’, both of which also topped the UK Singles Chart. This performance will be the first time Newman has headlined a UK festival’s main stage.  Also confirmed to headline is Jessie Ware, queen of an updated take on R&B teetering on the edge of the electronic. As well as her own Mercury Prize nominated material, Ware has appeared as a guest vocalist on tracks by the likes of Disclosure and SBKTRT. This announcement follows two sold out shows for Jessie Ware at Brixton Academy.
 
Elsewhere the festival’s attention turns to some of the most current and in-demand names attracting critical acclaim. Singer-songwriter James Bay features in the highest profile up-and-coming lists of the year including BBC Sound Of 2015 poll. Bay went on to win the BRITS Critics’ Choice award following in the footsteps of Adele and last year’s No Tomorrow headliner Sam Smith. DJ and house music producer Philip George brings homegrown talent to the festival. The Nottingham-based 21 year old recently made a big first impression by reaching number two in the UK Singles chart with his debut ‘Wish You Were Mine’.
 
Across No Tomorrow’s several stages the festival also boasts many more performances and a number of the finest international DJ talents. BondaxDJ EZ, and Eton Messy will be delivering epic DJ set across the dance music spectrum. Also expect strong live performances from the enigmatic Bristol duo Blonde with full band, Grammy-nominated MNEK and Bondax guest vocalist KStewart, appearing in her own right with solo material.
 
No Tomorrow celebrates the start of the summer season with a party menagerie of weekend wildlife. Set against the backdrop of Wollaton Hall which was used as Wayne Manor in the recent Batman movies, the once peaceful and idyllic setting of Nottingham’s deer park descends into a heady mix of cutting edge artists and carefully curated DJ sets. Combining top-line music with immersive art installations and workshops, full-on games and crafted food and drink, it’s time to party like there’s No Tomorrow.

SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT!

 

MILKY CHANCE, GORGON CITY, NICK MULVEY AND MORE ADDED TO NO TOMORROW FESTIVAL

Line-up of hugely in-demand talent now also includes SOAK, Karen Harding, JP Cooper, Zak Abel and more

 

  

Firmly kicking off summer 2015 is No Tomorrow Festival, taking place at Nottingham’s Wollaton Park on 6th & 7th June. Added to the already captivating line-up are electronic-infused pop duo Milky Chance, Mercury Music Prize-nominee Nick Mulvey and Black Butter Records’ dancefloor heroes Gorgon City, plus many more. For further information and to buy tickets visit the No Tomorrow website.



Milky Chance’s unique style of electronic-infused pop tracks such as ‘Stolen Dance’ and ‘Down By The River’ have clocked up over 170 million views on YouTube. The duo consisting of Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch have previously sold out two successive nights at Shepherd’s Bush Empire and scored number one singles in several European countries, an impressive feat for relative newcomers. They are being championed by the likes of Radio 1 and this summer is primed for their appearance at Nottingham’s No Tomorrow.
 
North London producers Gorgon City have racked up a top 10 album and two top 10 singles in the UK charts including ‘Ready For Your Love’, a track featuring fellow No Tomorrow performer MNEK. Their sound channels British warehouse vibes however, with SXSW showcases on the horizon, Gorgon City are headed for the global stage via their infectious club tunes and chart infiltrating hits.
 
Schooled in Havana, Cuba, Nick Mulvey brings a worldly mindset to his music. With two Mercury Music Prize nominations under his belt, one for his part in Portico Quartet and another as a solo artist in his own right, Mulvey is steadily ascending the scale of critically acclaimed singer-songwriters on home-ground here in the UK. His set at No Tomorrow in June will be an especially blissed-out moment of the weekend featuring tracks from his top 10 album, ‘First Mind’.
 
Continuing the thread of up and coming talent is SOAK, the 18-year-old singer-songwriter from Ireland who has been on multiple ‘ones-to-watch’ lists over the past couple of years including the BBC Sound of 2015. Now fully breaking through into the charts with melancholic hits such as ‘B a noBody’ and the Radio 1 A-listed track ‘Sea Creatures’, SOAK will surely be a highlight for No Tomorrow.
 
Another act to have collaborated with the prolific MNEK and confirmed to appear at No Tomorrow is Karen Harding. Her track ‘Say Something’ has been certified as Silver by the BPI, selling over 200,000 copies since its release in January, making the tune one of 2015’s biggest singles so far. 
 
Further breaking talent showcasing at the festival comes in the form of Manchester soul man JP Cooper. Cooper is a recent signing to the legendary Island Records, he has toured with Angie Stone and collaborated with George The Poet. Dubbed ‘Hot for 2015’ by BBC Radio 1Xtra the next addition, Zak Abel, has been building quite a reputation for his strong, distinctive vocals as featured on ‘Unmissable’, the Top 20 track by fellow No Tomorrow act Gorgon City. The festival keeps things in the family with label mates to Gorgon City, My Nu Leng. The Bristol-based My Nu Leng come highly recommended by taste-makers at Rinse, Radio 1, 1Xtra and more.
 
Finally in keeping with the electronic theme, Dirtybird co-founder Justin Martin will no doubt get the crowds dancing with his signature jacking beats.  Meanwhile chief remixer, Kiss FM stalwart and Bastille-collaborator Grades will bring his hits such as ‘Crocodile Tears’ to the No Tomorrow airwaves.
 
This second round of artists join previously announced acts including headliners John Newman and Jessie Ware, James Bay, Bondax, DJ EZ and many more of the most sought after names from both the underground and mainstream scenes. No Tomorrow’s line-up is speedily shaping up to be a vanguard-busting array of the best acts across a multitude of live and DJ genres.  
 
Now in its second year, No Tomorrow is gaining a reputation for bringing a heady mix of cutting edge acts to the Midlands. No Tomorrow may be a stone’s throw from the urban centre of Nottingham but within Wollaton Park it is nestled in a protective leafy bubble. Prime electronic sounds will drown out traffic and expansive green grounds play host to stages and other festival attractions. When not captivated by performers and DJs No Tomorrow visitors will be swept away by art installations and interactive games. And of course to refuel a fine selection of street food and craft drinks will be available.
 
Tickets are available now from notomorrowfestival.com or by calling 0844 871 8819.
