Hickstead is proud to present BOOMERANG, a brand new two-day music event at the world-renowned Hickstead International Arena on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September 2015. Set in the heart of Sussex, not only will this exciting new venture provide a unique venue to witness music from some of the world’s most prolific artists but there will also be a the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere at gourmet pop up restaurants, indulge in delicious street food and sample alternative entertainment away from the main stage.

Headlining Saturday, legendary live act, SIMPLE MINDS, bring their famed show to Sussex to perform a mix of greatest hits and songs from across their illustrious career, including tracks from their latest album 'Big Music'. As their only outdoor performance in the UK this summer, Boomerang offers fans and music lovers alike the chance to catch this prolific band on the open stage. Also on the bill, Scottish twin brothers, The Proclaimers, British country duo, The Shires; rising star, Andreya Triana and local artists Common Tongues and The Dubarrys.

Making her grand entrance on Sunday is British singer songwriter Jessie J, best known for a style that mixes soul vocals with R&B, pop and hip hop beats; Jessie will perform songs from her three albums including favourites: Price Tag, Do It Like A Dude, and, most recently, her collaboration with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj on her top ten hit Bang Bang.

“I'm really looking forward to playing with The Vamps in the Hickstead International Arena. It will be amazing to end the summer headlining at this great new event.” Jessie J

Joining Jessie J as Sunday's headliner will be super group, The Vamps. This talented pop band cause a stir everywhere they go, with legions of fans following and pandemonium at every turn; the UK four piece have become one of the heaviest bleeps on the chart radar and we can't wait to welcome them to Sussex. Supporting these pop heavy weights are North London music icons, Soul II Soul, critically acclaimed singer-songwriter, Rae Morris and Cornish born, Nathan Ball.
