Multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Pixie Lott has been announced as one of the top headline acts at this summer’s Festival Too.
The pop star, who has three number one singles and seven top 10 hits to her name, is expected to draw big crowds to King’s Lynn’s Tuesday Market Place on Saturday, July 7.
Fans can look forward to hearing chartbusters such as Mama Do, Boys and Girls, Broken Arrow and All About Tonight.
Alan Taylor, Festival Too chairman, said he was delighted to welcome the singer to the free festival.
“Festival Too has been growing and growing over the years. It is great for the town when big names like Pixie Lott choose to play here and a real feather in the cap for the festival organisers.
“I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say we can’t wait to see Pixie take to the stage.”
Pixie has also starred in BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing and as Holly Golightly in West End musical Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
And she was among the Artists for Grenfell, who topped the charts with the charity release of Bridge Over Troubled Water.
This will be the 33rd year of Festival Too, which has been offering free, live entertainment since 1985. The event is run entirely by volunteers and paid for by donations from West Norfolk businesses and collection proceeds.
The rest of the exciting line-up for the festival’s first weekend of concerts has also been announced.
Saturday’s full line-up begins with a performance from students of West Norfolk Academies Trust, followed by this year’s Battle of the Bands runner-up.
Then it will be time to re-live the 90s with Revival playing Brit-pop and Indie classics before FLAWES takes to the stage with a minimalist, pop-influenced sound.
And pop sensation Pixie Lott will round-off the evening as the final performer.
Friday, July 6, will see the festival’s Back in the Day night, kicking off with a performance from Springwood High School, followed by the Leeds Contemporary Singers. Once dubbed the ‘Fleetwood Mac of choirs’, the singers are a musical collective who bring together an eclectic range of voices and musical styles.
Soul legend Geno Washington and his band is also part of the line-up. He has regularly topped the bill worldwide with his live shows.
The evening is set to culminate with the Edwin Starr band, featuring the late great Edwin Starr’s brother Angelo Starr performing all the Edwin Starr classics, backed by Edwin’s original eight-piece band, The Team.
The Festival Too Back in the Day After Party will be held at the Corn Exchange at 10.45pm with DJ Mark Purdy playing soul, funk, disco, Motown and northern soul. Tickets will be available from the Corn Exchange.
Details of acts for the festival’s final weekend on July 13 and 14 are set to be revealed next week.
