Fusion Festival is proud to announce that more stars will be performing at this summer’s iconic Cofton Park, Birmingham, in support of youth charity The Prince’s Trust. No less than 21 of today’s biggest pop acts will descend on the midlands to play over two nights, with up to 40,000 music fans coming together for a huge weekend of pop at its very best. Expect spectacular live performances, massive chart smash hits plus all the fun of the festival fair with a full fairground and many other interactive events.

Added to Saturday’s bill, headlined by none other than superstar Jessie J, are; smash hit ‘La La La’ producer Naughty Boy, followed by ‘Need You (100%)’ singer A*M*E, the talented Charlie Brown, Indie/Pop band The Vamps and singer-songwriter Ed Drewett. Other acts previously announced are platinum-selling boy band JLS and “It’s All About You” crooners McFly. British rapper Wiley, Union J and songstress Amelia Lily will also be taking to the stage as part of an incredible mix of artists to play the festival.

Sunday just got even more exciting with ‘Earthquake’ vocalist and producer Labrinth coming to town, local Birmingham singer Jacob Banks, Finnish super kid Isac Elliot and the fresh young star Ollie Marland. Wretch 32, Conor Maynard and this year’s X Factor winner James Arthur are also on the bill, followed by chart heartthrobs The Wanted and uber glam The Saturdays. Headlining is American R&B god Ne-Yo, rounding off a spectacular weekend at Cofton Park.

Festival spokesman Mike Owen says "Fusion Festival was already shaping up to be the biggest musical event to hit Birmingham in years, now with the addition of huge artists such as Naughty Boy, Labrinth and more, the event takes on a whole new status. We can't wait to deliver a party Birmingham will never forget"

"102.2 Capital FM will be live backstage throughout the whole weekend bringing listeners even closer to the biggest artists in the world!” Programme Controller Paul Gerrard said “The whole team are buzzing about being right in the midst of one of the biggest music festivals Brum has seen, if it's happening, our listeners will be hearing it and seeing it!'

Fusion Festival is proud to support The Prince’s Trust, with £5 from each ticket sale donated to the charity to help change young lives across the UK. The Prince’s Trust is a youth charity that helps vulnerable young people to turn their lives around.

Youth charity The Prince’s Trust has helped more than 700,000 young people since 1976 and supports 100 more each day. Further information about The Prince’s Trust is available at princes-trust.org.uk or on 0800 842 842.
