It’s that time of year again. Yes, the wait is over and Boardmasters have cooked up a fantastic line up yet again for the 2016 instalment of the festival with the first headliners announced.
Brit and Grammy Award nominee, James Bay was the first act to be confirmed to headline the three day music spectacular. Bay is famous for his notable hits; Hold Back the River, which reached number 2 in the UK charts and Let It Go, which was also a top 10 UK single for the British singer-songwriter. Both feature on his 2015 Platinum-selling album Chaos and the Calm.
Also announced to headline Boardmasters 2016 are the Kaiser Chiefs whose frontman Ricky Wilson is currently a mentor on talent show The Voice UK. Of course, they are most famous for I Predict a Riot and Ruby from the album Employment and fans will be hoping they showcase some of their new hits at Boardmasters.
Craig David, Jamie Lawson (recently became the first act signed to Ed Sheeran’s record label), MNEK, Wolf Alice, Example, Sigma as well as Gabrielle Aplin who is most famous for her cover of The Power of Love.
With more acts still to be announced, we are all in for a treat if the first wave of acts are anything to go by.
