Headline acts announced for The Bath Festival Finale Weekend

20/02/2019 by Richard Samuel

Sorry it took so long! We and Bath Festivals can finally reveal that Grammy award-winning chart toppers Clean Bandit and legendary singer songwriter Van Morrison as the headline acts for The Bath Festival Finale Weekend to be held on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 June on the Bath Recreation Ground! Tickets will go back on sale 10am Friday the 22nd of February!

Clean Bandit, who have had four Number 1 UK singles and have recently been nominated for two Brit awards, headline the Main Stage on Saturday. Topping the bill on the Sunday is Van Morrison, who has been delighting audiences all over the world for five decades and has recently released his 40th studio album, coinciding with a series of shows in the US.

Last summer’s first ever Bath Festival Finale Weekend held on Bath’s Recreation Ground was hugely popular, with festival goers enjoying performances from stars including Paloma Faith, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Robert Plant and Midge Ure. The success of that first event has prompted Bath Festivals and Orchard Live to announce a second Finale Weekend for 2019. Once again, the event will take place on Bath Recreation Ground, right in the heart of the city within walking distance of the train and bus station.

Look out on our social media and the fesitvals (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram @TBFFinale) for announcements in the coming weeks, of more acts on the line-up.

The Finale Weekend, sponsored by Bath Ales, Novia, Bath BID and Agriframes is an extravaganza of music, fun and great food and drink, with something for everyone. There will be two music stages, a spoken word stage and a fun-filled family zone with craft, workshops, music and storytelling.
