Example's meteoric rise from fresh-faced Fulham rapper to worldwide club anthem superstar has been nothing short of spectacular. Since hitting the charts in 2009, Example has gone from strength to strength, with hit singles such as 'Kickstarts' and 'Changed The Way You Kissed Me' the summer anthems of the last two years.
Example tour dates
Hackney-based Drum'n'Bass quartet made up of musicians Piers Agget, Kesi Dryden, Amir Amor and Leon (DJ Locksmith), who navigate through genres effortlessly. Known for their collaborations, they first achieved a UK no.1 single in 2012 with 'Feel The Love' featuring guest vocalist John Newman, and the success story continued with number ones from 'Waiting All Night' featuring Ella Eyre and 'These Days' featuring Jess Glynne, Macklemore and Dan Caplen.
Rudimental tour dates
BRIT Award-winning punk popsters McFly took their name from Marty McFly of the 'Back To The Future' films. They had 19 hit singles including 7 UK no.1s. From their debut in 2004 with '5 Colours In Her Hair' to 'Love Is On The Radio' in 2013, the boys were unstoppable. They then joined forces with fellow British punk-pop band Busted to form McBusted and went on to complete two massive UK tours. Since then the original line-up of Busted have reformed, and it was only a matter of time before Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd got back together to soar as McFly once more.

The Saturdays first toured in 2008, supporting Girls Aloud. They have since had multiple Top 10 hit singles and have set the pop world alight with their high energy performances.
The girls have gone on to sell over five million records, and with four top ten albums already under their belts, The Saturdays continue to be a whirlwind force in the world of pop which shows no sign of slowing.

Eliza is the back-to-basics singer-songwriter of soulful pop music whose antics made a stark impression on the UK music scene when she first came to attention. She's been making music since the age of 10, growing up listening to old Motown, hip-hop and pop music to become the embodiment of the modern-day diva.

Since then she's continued to grow a devoted fanbase through her busy live schedule and three top 40 chart albums. With a unique style of acoustic folk and pop, Lucy mixes humour, talent and honesty to create her own fresh sound. She has also created some epic Adele-esque anthems.
