About Rudimental

Rudimental released two huge singles last year from their new album. The smash hit UK number one These Days featuring Jess Glynne, Macklemore and Dan Caplen - the biggest-selling record of 2018 in the UK, with 800 million global streams and going Double-Platinum in the UK. And Let Me Live, produced with Major Lazer, featuring Anne Marie and Mr. Eazi which clocked up over 74 million streams.

Their third album Toast To Our Differences is an eclectic mix of upbeat party anthems and boasts an extraordinary list of collaborators.

With much of last summer spent on tour, as well as overseeing a coveted weekly residency at Ibiza Rocks, the band were working hard on putting final touches to an album that thoughtfully joins the dots between their remarkable, hit-making pedigree and ability to discover and nurture exciting new talent.

With two number one albums and three number one singles already under their belts, Rudimental have sold over 20 million singles and over 2 million albums. Extraordinary numbers for a band who have consistently moulded new and inventive sounds to push the boundaries of conventional pop music.

Example isn’t reinventing himself, he’s going back to what he’s about. 

I don’t care about playing the game anymore – I just want to have fun with my music again!”

Example’s career spans over a decade and needs little introduction. With three top 10 albums (including the Platinum selling number 1 Playing In The Shadows), ten singles that have made the top 10, arena tours and festival headline slots in over 60 countries.

This is going to be one fantastic night.


Supporting Act

Mahalia enjoyed an incredible 2018, quickly becoming one of the year’s most exciting UK female artists. She won YouTube’s inaugural One To Watch list and soon after became the only musician to be tipped for both BRIT’s Critics Choice Award and the BBC Sound Poll shortlist.

After selling out London’s prestigious O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in April, Mahalia dropped neo-soul ballad Grateful. She is currently on tour in the US with Ella Mai whilst putting the final touches on her upcoming debut album out later this year. 

“Is there a voice more soothing than Mahalia’s? Taking us under her spell in this smooth and sultry bop, the singer is asking for total honesty in this track. Putting that feeling of total infatuation into words, the singer has captured something special, and no one else can touch it.” - MTV on Grateful
