Rag 'n' Bone Man is to perform for Live In The Wyldes one-day-events series, which take place at 'The Wyldes', a custom made events site set in a scenic valley in North Cornwall, with the show on Friday 12th June 2020. There's support acts to be announced.
The Sussex singer songwriter, real name Rory Graham, played the north Cornwall venue as the very first Live In The Wyldes headliner in 2017 - the same year he scooped British Breakthrough Act and Critics' Choice at the BRIT Awards. Since then he's gone from strength to strength. He picked up a third BRIT, winning Best Single in 2018 for Human, the title track from his record-breaking quadruple-platinum number one album of the same name. He first played Leopallooza back in 2016, and couldn't resist an invitation to headline his own show, with handpicked support, the following year. He won himself a firm following when he played Live In The Wyldes in 2017, but 2020's headline gig will mark his return to the north Cornwall venue as a bona fide superstar. Graham will bring a host of his own guests, like he did last time he headlined The Wyldes, making it an extra personal affair. It'll also be a chance to hear new material, with another album in the pipeline too. Expect early live listens to fresh tracks.
"When he first played Leopallooza back in 2016 he was very much on the underground scene," says Wyldes organiser Lee Ellis. "And last time he headlined, he was well on his way up. But now he's where he should be in terms of his success, and it's amazing that we've managed to get him back. Everyone who saw him last time will want to come and see him again. He's just so authentic, he's quite an enigmatic performer, his voice is incredible and his stage presence is gargantuan. We can't wait to have him back."
Tickets are priced from £47.50, and will go on sale at 10am on Friday 22nd November. Camping is available at £5 extra for a night.
Rag’n’Bone Man is the second act to be announced for Live In The Wyldes 2020, after Keane were announced last week. Tickets for Keane are available now.
Live In The Wyldes is more than your standard gig; the gates open in the afternoon, with plenty of time for campers to set their tents up, take a stroll through the permanent festival site, tuck into street food and enjoy multiple support slots. It’s a whole day (and night if you want to stay!) of music, food and good times.
