Professor Green and Nina Nesbitt complete the line ups for De Montfort Hall’s Gigs in the Gardens
London rapper Professor Green will complete the bill for Saturday 17 August, joining Busted and Scouting For Girls; and Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt joins the line-up on Sunday 25 August, along with Years & Years and Jax Jones.
They join a host of artists booked to perform in the gardens of the historic De Montfort Hall during the final two weeks of August.
Kaiser Chiefs, The Vaccines and The Twang will appear on Sunday 18 August, Bugzy Malone, Yxngbane and Wretch 32 will perform on Friday 16 August and Friday 23 August will see DJ sets from Groove Armada, Pete Tong and Danny Howard.
On Saturday 24 August, BBC Music Introducing will be hosting up and coming artists from the East Midlands, while on Monday 26 August, Bardi Symphony Orchestra will bring the summer series to a close with a family friendly concert of film and stage classics, concluding with a spectacular firework display.
De Montfort Hall general manager Antony Flint said: “These last couple of acts round off an exceptional and varied set of line-ups, which we hope will prove popular with a wide range of music audiences.”
“After considerable investment in our outdoor infrastructure, we’re delighted to again share larger scale outdoor concerts with a wider musical public, who we are sure will find the gardens of De Montfort Hall just as welcoming as the hall itself.”
Major improvement works were undertaken last summer meaning the grounds can now host large-scale concerts much more easily than before.
