International music stars are to perform at a two day festival in Cofton Park, Longbridge this summer. The Fusion Festival concerts will see no fewer than 20 acts from both sides of the Atlantic taking to the big stage in aid of the youth charity, The Prince’s Trust.
Acts to perform are a closely guarded secret but the full line-up will be revealed tomorrow (Monday 8th April) on Birmingham’s Capital FM Breakfast show with Dan and Katy. Tune in at 8.00am to be one of the first people to hear the incredible mix of artists confirmed to perform.
The concerts on 31st August and 1st September will see around 60,000 pop music lovers visiting historic Cofton Park.
Festival spokesman, Mike Owen of Go Big said “We felt the time was right for a brand new music festival for the UK’s 2nd city and we are so excited to be working with such a fantastic organization as The Princes Trust and with the UK’s number one hit music station, Capital FM. We’ve got a brilliant line-up this year and this is only the beginning for Fusion Festival.”
Paul Brown, director, youth charity The Prince’s Trust said: “We’re thrilled to be involved in the Fusion Festival, which will bring together Britain’s top pop acts to raise vital funds for disadvantaged young people. Almost a million of our young people are struggling to find a job, leaving them with little hope for the future. Thanks to the Fusion Festival, The Prince’s Trust will be able to change more young lives for the better.”
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.
