    TOM ODELL, RAE MORRIS, THE FEELING, LAWSON, AND MANY, MANY MORE WILL PERFORM ACROSS THE WEEKEND

    TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY 15TH MAY//@GibMusicFest

    Bringing some of the world’s biggest live acts to Gibraltar each year, GMF is back in 2015 with its biggest lineup to date in the picturesque and intimate surroundings of Victoria Stadium on the Rock of Gibraltar.

    Co-headlining will be pop icons Duran Duran. Having sold over 100 million records worldwide and with a new album set for release in mid September of this year featuring highly anticipated collaborations with the likes of Janelle Monáe, Kiesza, Nile Rodgers and Mark Ronson, the band are as vital and festival ready as ever. Expect a career spanning set filled to the brim with the band’s huge arsenal of hits alongside new material.

    Also headlining proceedings this year are none other than Nashville rock heroes Kings Of Leon who come to GMF as a UK/British exclusive performance. Since bursting into the public consciousness with breakthrough album ‘Youth & Young Manhood’ back in 2003 they have spent over a decade positioning themselves as one of the greatest bands of a generation. With festival-ready anthems like ‘Sex On Fire’, ‘Use Somebody’ and ‘The Bucket’ at their disposal they are a world-class act not to be missed.

    Joining the headliners is a supporting cast of some of the world’s best talent including award-winning piano balladeer Tom Odell, breakthrough singer-songwriter Rae Morris, powerpop superstars The Feeling, pop-rock chart smashers Lawson and reggae veterans Third World alongside names like Reach, Strange Brew, Tim Garcia and many more still to be announced.

    Providing the perfect end to the festival season, GMF is a family-friendly festival in the sunshine. Affordable and easily accessible, Gibraltar Music Festival rolls a holiday and a festival into one incredible weekend.

    The 2015 Gibraltar Music Festival will be held at the Victoria Stadium in Gibraltar on the 5th and 6th of September 2015.

    Bestival Unveils the First Acts to Feel the Love (Duran Duran included!)
    First Announce - Social - b15 no j5

    TICKETS ON SALE THURSDAY 12TH FEBRUARY 10:00AM

    We’ve always been lovers, not fighters, everyone knows that. So, now that Bestival’s Summer of Love theme is out in the open and our amorous adventures are well and truly underway, we’re more than a little excited to turn our attentions to our first line-up announcement! Featuring our mighty Thursday Big Top headliners and our Saturday main stage headliners, and a litany of party people spreading their love across more than 25 stages in 8 fields of wonderment with mega soundsystems, non-stop parties and 24-hour escapism, this is just the beginning, so don’t miss out; feel the love this September 10th-13th at Robin Hill on the Isle of Wight.

    Joining our line-up for the first time for a UK festival exclusive appearance are iconic trailblazers Duran Duran. Unstoppable as ever, the band are currently in the studio with Mr. Hudson, Mark Ronson and Nile Rodgers, putting the finishing touches on a brand new album, set for release later this year. Frontman Simon Le Bon says: “This year sees the beginning of a new Duran Duran live show. I couldn't imagine starting it with more of a bang than an appearance at Bestival.”

    Duran Duran's Bestival performance will be on Friday, September 11th

    Since we’ve got a bit of a hippie vibe going on this year, bringing back the peace and love, it seems like the perfect time to announce that Bestival has become a member of pioneering project Energy Revolution, a festival charity (pending incorporation) that crowdsources donations and invests in clean energy to tackle climate change and create a sustainable future for everyone. Audience travel makes up around 70% of a festival’s carbon footprint. Together we can account for millions of miles of travel, and turn a problem into a solution - renewable energy is the best chance we have to reduce global emissions to safe levels. So when you book your car park, caravan or camper tickets there will be an option to add a £3 donation to Energy Revolution. We’re doing our bit by using renewables where possible, so if you could help too, we could make a real difference!

    Tickets for Bestival’s Summer of Love go on sale at 10am on Thursday 12th February, and more announcements are coming very soon.

    Warner Bros Sign Duran Duran to Global Recording Contract
    WARNER BROS. RECORDS SIGNS DURAN DURAN TO GLOBAL RECORDING CONTRACT

    ICONIC MULTI-PLATINUM BAND COMPLETE NEW STUDIO ALBUM WITH PRODUCERS NILE RODGERS, MARK RONSON AND MR HUDSON

    BURBANK, CA – March 27, 2015: Warner Bros. Records (WBR) announced today that it has signed a global recording contract with international superstars Duran Duran.

    Singer Simon Le Bon, keyboardist Nick Rhodes, bassist John Taylor, and drummer Roger Taylor have just completed work in London on a new studio album, their 14th. Produced by Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson and Mr Hudson, it is slated for release in September of this year. Duran Duran first teamed up with Rodgers as a producer on the band’s hit single, “The Wild Boys.” This followed his remix of their first worldwide No. 1 single, “The Reflex.” The CHIC co-founder also produced their multi-platinum album, Notorious. Ronson (Bruno Mars, Amy Winehouse) produced Duran Duran’s last studio album, 2010’s All You Need Is Now, which hit the #1 slot in 15 countries. The first single: “Pressure Off” from their upcoming release features critically acclaimed singer / songwriter Janelle Monáe. The new album also includes guest appearances by former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante, and Canadian Juno-Award winning newcomer Kiesza.

    “I am thrilled to welcome Duran Duran into the Warner Bros. family,” said Warner Bros. Records President Dan McCarroll. “This is an iconic, enduring band that continues to make brilliant, timeless pop music. The combination of Duran Duran, Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson and Mr Hudson is a dream team, and the songs they have created together for this new record are as fresh and compelling as anything in the band’s long career. All of us at WBR are looking forward to working with Simon, Nick, John, and Roger as they begin this exciting new chapter.”

    “We could not be happier to be making this deal with Warner Bros., and are looking forward to working on our forthcoming album release with not only their US team but also everyone else within the Warner family around the world,” said bassist John Taylor. “We are also excited that this deal means we will be reunited with our catalogue after years apart - and in that sense it really feels a little like coming home.”

    Formed in Birmingham, England, in 1978, Duran Duran went on to become one of the most culturally influential and commercially successful bands of all time, topping the charts around the world over the past three decades and selling more than 100 million records worldwide. They have been the recipients of Grammys, Brits, Ivor Novellos, six Lifetime Achievement Awards and a 20th Century Style Icon award from the City of Milan. Tireless innovators, they are always at the vanguard of music, fashion, art, technology and film – a group with unique and everlasting appeal.
