Mighty Hoopla triumphantly announce the addition of R&B sensation TLC to an already illustrious line up that includes Lily Allen, Melanie C, Louise, Vengaboys, MNEK, Louisa Johnson, Belinda Carlisle, B*Witched, Nimmo, with many more still to be announced
The R&B behemoths will perform their first ever UK festival, promising a set bursting with some of the biggest hits of our time, including girl power anthem 'No Scrubs', the life-affirming 'Waterfalls' and 'Creep', as well as huge summer hits 'Way Back' and 'It's Sunny' from the band's eponymously named 2017 album, which saw them return after a 15 year hiatus. The performance in South London's Brockwell Park will mark the group's second ever UK performance following a sold out KOKO show last year.
They will be joined by the fabulous Lily Allen, who's set to tease the South London audience with new material following the announcement of her highly anticipated new album 'No Shame' and infectiously catchy Giggs collaboration 'Trigger Bang', plus a slew of number 1 hits. Then there's Sporty Spice Melanie C, Dutch pop heavyweights the Vengaboys, mega watt pop star Belinda Carlisle, Eternal star and 90s pop princess Louise and Irish comeback queens B*Witched. Alongside these pop veterans will be South London hitmaker MNEK, queen of X-Factor Louisa Johnson and electronic duo Nimmo, who return to the festival after thrilling last year's revellers with their dance-pop-disco sounds.
Heading up the celebration of alternative club culture are Sink The Pink and Guilty Pleasures, with their Mighty Hoopla friends and family in tow. These include the undisputed champions of House & Disco love-ins and Ibiza kings Glitterbox; the bingo party that’s taken the UK by storm – Bongo’s Bingo; East London's cult queer LGBTQ haunt The Glory; Clapham nightlife kings The Grand and more still to be announced.
This year's Hoopla follows the massive success of 2017's inaugural London edition, which welcomed 15000 revellers and huge names including Years & Years, All Saints, Charlotte Church's Late Night Pop Dungeon, Will Young, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Fleur East, Alma and many more. Returning for 2018 in a brand new Brockwell Park location, Mighty Hoopla promises to be the ultimate celebration of all things pop and enjoyment.
