Tickets for the mega line up announced to date for Day 2 of Tennent’s Vital on Friday 26th August,that will see Avicii headline alongside special guests Jess Glynne and Galantis, are now on general release.
Recognised as one of the world’s most influential dance music artists of his generation, it was with his genre-defying debut album, ‘True’, that Swedish DJ Avicii cemented his place in the firmament of superstar recording artists. While still in his twenties, he already has a string of hits behind him and is today credited with having single-handedly redefined the boundaries of contemporary dance music. The multi award-winning ‘True’, released in 2013, sold more than five million copies worldwide, charted at #1 on iTunes in an amazing eighty-four countries and gave us ‘Wake Me Up’, the fastest-selling single of 2013, most streamed song of all time on Spotify (over 300 million plays) and the #1 ‘Shazamed’ tune worldwide.
Success has been heaped upon success and, in 2015, Avicii released his second studio album, ‘Stories’, cementing his reputation and demonstrating the creative evolution of his distinctive sound.
Triple Brit Awards nominee (for Best British Breakthrough, Best British Female and Best Single) Jess Glynne has also stormed the music scene, rocketing to glory with dazzling speed and impact. Armed with the biggest selling debut album of 2015, she launched into 2016 with a brand new single ‘Aint Got Far To Go’, from her platinum-selling album ‘I Cry When I Laugh’ and things couldn’t look better for the talented singer songwriter.
Stockholm-based Galantis adds still more power to this great bill, bringing an incredible audio/visual experience to live performance that matches the really, really big vibe of their music. In 2015 Galantis was named Best Breakthrough Artist at the 30th International Dance Music Awards. They are best known for ‘Peanut Butter Jelly’ and ‘Runaway (U&I)’ which was nominated for Best Dance Recording for the 2016 Grammy Awards.
