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.

Musical.ly and Tik Tok star, Amelia Gething and fellow YouTube superstar Rosie McClelland will also be in attendance. Plus, don’t miss social media icon Lewys Ball, known for his make-up tutorials and daily student life vlogs, and popular online personality Holly H - dubbed the UK’s biggest creator in the world on video app Tik Tok.

Dancing their way to the stage for energetic performances, sure to get the crowds moving, the cast of The Next Step and Britain’s Got Talent’s Mersey Girls will also showcase their talents on Saturday. 

Joining CBeebies Superstar Mr Tumble on Sunday, a whole host of CBBC and CBeebies presenters will take to the main stage to host non-stop fun for all the family across both days.
