See the stars of the BRIT Awards this summer without it costing you a penny!

Thursday, February 16, 2023

There's nothing that gets us in the mood for a summer of incredible live music like the BRIT Awards and last weekend was no disappointment! ✨

We're so excited to see a whole host of the winners and nominees this summer and by applying to volunteer with us you can too! 🤩

If you didn't watch, you missed amazing performances from winners Wet Leg and Becky Hill and nominees Lewis Capaldi and Sam Ryder. Wet Leg won both Best New Artist and Group of the Year and we're so excited to catch them at Reading and Leeds Festival this summer! Joining Wet Leg on the Reading and Leeds bill is Becky Hill who won Best Dance Act for the second year in a row. If you missed Becky Hill headlining Camp Bestival Shropshire last year you can catch her at Reading and Leeds in August!

Best New Artist nominee (and Eurovision 2022 runner-up) Sam Ryder also performed, teaming up with Ella Henderson, Becky Hill and David Guetta for a showstopping medley - can we expect a similar duet with Sam and Ella both performing at Camp Bestival Dorset and Camp Bestival Shropshire this summer? 👀
