Pharrell’s explosive rise to megastardom began as one half of production duo The Neptunes alongside Chad Hugo. The pair were responsible for hits including Nelly’s ‘Hot in Herre’, Jay-Z’s ‘Frontin’ and Snoop Dogg’s ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’, as well as working with Kelis, Britney Spears, Beyonce and Gwen Stefani. In 2004, Pharrell won two Grammys for Producer of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album, for his work on Justin Timberlake’s album ‘Justified’.
Pharrell was instrumental in three of 2013’s biggest hits - his own song, ‘Happy’, ‘Get Lucky’ with Daft Punk and Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’. Pharrell’s third entry on the prestigious list was the super smash hit ‘Happy’, which he penned for the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. Pharrell also scooped four Grammys in 2014 – two for his appearance on ‘Get Lucky’, one for Album of the Year for ‘Random Access Memories’ with Daft Punk, and one as Producer of the Year.
Pharrell Williams tour dates
British-Albanian mezzo-soprano r'n'b queen Rita Ora has been around for a while, but came to full prominence in 2012 when she provided the vocals for DJ Fresh's 'Hot Right Now', which topped the UK singles chart. Rita followed this with her own string of no.1 singles; 'R.I.P', 'How We Do (Party)' and 'I Will Never Let You Down'.
Still keen on recording collaborations outside of her solo work, Rita has also teamed up with the likes of Charli XCX, Avicii and Iggy Azalea, amongst others. Outside of her music, Rita is a regular face for cosmetics and a former mentor and judge of TV talent show The Voice.
Rita Ora tour dates
Deep electro disco from Scottish one-man studio Calvin Harris.

Double grammy award winner David Guetta cemented his status with 2009's multi-platinum One Love; a genre-busting hitmaker whose in-your-face fusion of electro and hip-hop beautifully warps the pop landscape. His track record has been impeccable for nearly two decades and he is now simply, a phenomenon. His name is synonymous with the world's greatest dance music and with parties that bring that music to life. David Guetta has sold over 20 million records worldwide, but despite his pop success, he is a DJ first and he has elevated the art to unprecedented levels.
David Guetta tour dates
Cheryl has been in the public eye since late 2002 when she auditioned for the reality television show Popstars: The Rivals, going on to be picked as one fifth of Girls Aloud. The group went on to have twenty consecutive top ten singles (including four No. 1's) in the UK and five platinum albums (two of which went to No. 1) and earned five BRIT Award nominations from 2005 to 2010. When Girls Aloud went on hiatus in 2009, Cheryl went solo, bagging herself two No. 1 albums - 3 Words (2009) and Messy Little Raindrops (2010) - and became an X Factor judge, mentoring the winning act for two years running. Cheryl releases her third solo album in 2012 and heads out for her first UK arena tour.

Essex-born songwriter Jessie J has penned tunes for the likes of Alicia Keyes, toured with Chris Brown and notably wrote Miley Cyrus's Number One billboard smash 'Party In The USA!' Jessie kicked off her solo career with “Price Tag”, the anti-materialistic anthem of its year, and an album that sold in its millions going platinum several times over. But that was just the beginning of a journey that would see Jessie become the first British woman in history to take six top ten singles from one album and never mind that it was her first outing.
While her multi-octave voice and self-made attitude has earned Jessie J the respect of music's glitterati; from Kylie to Justin Timberlake commenting 'Who is the best singer? Jessie J!', to Cyndi Lauper pulling her on stage at Shepherds Bush to sing her legendary anthem 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' alongside her.
Jessie J tour dates
Union J originally consisting of members Jaymi, JJ, Josh & George were formed in 2012 on the TV phenomenon that is the X-Factor. After finishing up as semi finalists the 4 boys went on to have chart success with 4 top 10 UK Official Chart singles and their first album selling over 100,000 copies hitting the charts at #6 in 2013. In 2014 the boys released their most successful single to date ‘You Got It All’ which hit the charts at #2 sending the boys on a whirlwind sold out tour across the UK selling over 40,000 tickets!
In 2016 George Shelley and the band partied ways with the band officially announcing in The Sun the newest member, former Stereo Kicks member Casey Johnson. Expect to hear all your favourites plus new music from this new four piece as they go on to the next chapter of Union J.
Union J tour dates
As her debut album, Lights, made so thrillingly clear, Ellie Goulding uses her voice as a texture in much the same way that a skilled instrumentalist would. It is a sound – in Ellie's case, an utterly distinctive and unforgettable one – that can play as important a role in her songs as any other musical detail.
The BRIT-winning singer/songwriter released Lights in 2010 and followed it up with Halcyon in 2012. Both albums peaked at number one in the UK album chart and went double-platinum. Halcyon was re-released with ten additional tracks as Halcyon Days in 2013. These included How Long Will I Love You?, which became the BBC Children in Need single, and her first number one single, Burn, which has since racked up nearly 160 million views on YouTube.
Ellie Goulding tour dates
No longer just Julio's son, Enrique is a successful worldwide recording artist in his own right. He's the biggest-selling artist singing in his native tongue ever, Enrique's English language version of 'Hero' gave him a number one across the globe and his smooth pop balladry and handsome features have earned him a host of fans.
Enrique Iglesias tour dates
One of the biggest breakout artists to emerge in recent times, Sam first emerged on the scene featuring on Disclosure’s hit single ‘Latch’, then went on to work with Naughty Boy on the number one single ‘La La La’. Since then he's found huge success by himself including 5 UK number one singles, from 'Money On My Mind' to 'Too Good At Goodbyes', and the number one album 'In The Lonely Hour'.
Live, Sam’s incredible vocal and stage presence has hit higher levels as he has gone from touring with Disclosure and Emeli Sande to selling out his own shows in the UK as well as in the US. Critics have lauded Sam and his music with huge accolades. He has notched up numerous awards including three Brits, four Grammys, six MOBOs, and awards from Q Magazine, Heart Radio, Golden Globes and Billboard amongst others.
Sam Smith tour dates
The Brit award-winning singer/songwriter from Suffolk who found fame by fusing traditional acoustic and folk melodies with hip hop beats, Sheeran has created an inimitable sound and built a massive legion of fans through his constant live gigging.
Sheeran made chart history at the beginning of 2017 by being the only artist to debut two brand new singles in the top two positions, with 'Castle Of You' reaching no.2 and 'Shape Of You' reaching no.1 simultaneously, along with each individual track from his '÷' album entering the top 20 of the singles chart.
He also achieved the prestigious UK Christmas no.1 spot in 2017 with 'Perfect', while the '÷' album had notched up sales of over 2 million by the end of 2017 and became the fastest-selling album by a UK male artist of all time.
Ed Sheeran tour dates
One of the most exciting new producers to emerge from the UK, Duke has set the world alight with his EPs for Tiga's Turbo label and tracks such as the awesome 'Lean and Bounce’. With remixes for Missy Elliott already under his belt, there's a lot more to come from this immense new talent.
Duke Dumont tour dates
A young four piece indie rock band from Sydney, Australia whose influences include All Time Low and Mayday Parade.
5 Seconds Of Summer tour dates
A classico-electronical collective. The core members Jack Patterson (bass, keyboards), Grace Chatto (cello) and Milan Neil Amin-Smith (violin) met while studying as undergraduates in Cambridge, later joined by brother Luke Patterson (drums). Their unique take on dance music sees beats collide with classical, where Baroque meets house and pop. Classing themselves as an 'electroquartet', and featuring a string of guest vocalists, they have been described as the new Disclosure with a chamberpop bent.
Clean Bandit tour dates
The Vamps cause a stir everywhere they go, with legions of fans following and pandemonium at every turn. A phenomenal live band with an electrifying set, the four-piece - comprised of singer Bradley Will Simpson, guitarist James McVey, drummer Tristan Evans and bassist Connor Ball - also have a phenomenal following online.
The Vamps tour dates
Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall became Little Mix in 2011. It seems almost a distant memory now that these girls won The X-Factor (and were the first ever group to do so, rather than a solo singer).
They have had four UK No.1 singles and four platinum albums, from the debut 'DNA' to 'Glory Days' and were presented with a plaque from their label in 2017 for total worldwide sales of 30 million. This makes them officially the biggest girl band since the Spice Girls. Aside from sales, they have also gained recognition, with a string of awards from MTV Europe, Choice, Glamour and 'Shout Out To My Ex' received a Brit for 'Best British Single'.
