Lianne La Havas (UK)
Lianne La Havas made a huge breakthrough with her Top 5 debut album in 2012 Is Your Love Big Enough? which sold 200,000 copies and won Album of the Year at iTunes as well as Barclaycard Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Best Album nominations.
Her debut single of the same name provided more highlights in its lifecycle than many artists experience in their entire career.
Inspired by La Havas’ part Jamaican and part Greek family heritage, her second album, Blood is a collection that shakes, shimmies, and swings with imaginative and immersive grooves.
Featuring neo style and jazz tunes, the album peaked at number two in the United Kingdom, number one in the Netherlands and Norway and received a nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album at the 2016 Grammy Awards. La Havas also received a nomination for British Female Solo Artist at the Brit Awards 2017.
Dubbed Britain's next big female star by Daily Mail, La Havas has embarked on tours across Ireland, the United Kingdom, Europe and North America. Her performance career has also seen her featured as a supporting act to Alicia Keys, Bon Iver, Jools Holland, Paloma Faith, Prince, and most recently in Coldplay’s latest tour.
Fans of the powerhouse singer will be serenaded by her hits from both albums including ‘Unstoppable’, ‘What You Don’t Do’, and ‘Is Your Love Big Enough?’ at the Padang Stage on Friday, 15 September and Village Stage on Saturday, 16 September.
