Line up & what to expect!
On Saturday July 13th, Florence + The Machine perform for their hometown and return to British Summer Time for a celebratory show along with The National. Joining them on the day will be Lykke Li, Khruangbin, Blood Orange & Nadine Shah and many other fantastic artists.
Live, Florence Welch’s voice is a force of nature and stunning sound and vision combine to create an ecstatic show. Hits like first single from High As Hope – ‘Hunger’ – plus favourites such as ‘You’ve Got The Love’, ‘Dog Days Are Over’ ‘Shake It Out’ and ‘Ship To Wreck’ become explosive celebrations in concert, as fans at the recent UK arena tour discovered. The tour received rave reviews across the board, including 5 stars from The Telegraph, Evening Standard and The Independent – who called the show “Powerful and breathtaking”.
Joining Florence are an American indie institution from Ohio, festival favourites and one of the most highly rated live acts around – The National. Latest album Sleep Well Beast lived up to the intense anticipation generated by an acclaimed catalogue and broke new ground with their first UK Number 1 album.
This is a 1x day event. We’re looking for festival volunteers to join our team as “Sustainability Ambassadors“; welcoming festival-goers as they approach recycling points across the festival site, and encouraging people to recycle where possible. This is a fantastic role, as our team will be at the heart of delivering a high-impact sustainable initiative, which will increase uptake on recycling, and also reinforce a cleaner, safer, and more eco-conscious festival experience. This is not a litter picking role.
We’re ideally looking for volunteers who are confident, passionate about sustainability and proactive in their thinking! You can volunteer to give your time at not just this show, but all of the other BST events, all for the price of one deposit!
Whatever you choose you will only have to pay one deposit to attend as many days as you want, it’s up to you.
You’ll be required for 1 x 6 hour shift per day you volunteer, finishing no later than 7pm. You’ll get free entry, training and support from an experienced team, a free lunch provided, snacks, access to tea and coffee, and loads of time to enjoy the headline acts at this epic event!
