Caspa 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.

Chase (Will) & Status (Saul) have been hailed as 'the most exciting producers in the UK today'. They met at Manchester University through their mutual love of drum and bass in the mid nineties and have DJ'd ever since. Their frenetic formula of raging riffs and high octane breakdowns earned their acclaimed album 'No More Idols' double platinum status, whilst their baffling, on-the-fly manipulation of dirty, ferocious beats has attracted a devoted global fan base, who live and breathe that tumultuous bass driven sound.
Chase & Status tour dates
