Ever since their iconic tune ‘Feel the Love’ debuted at the top of the UK Singles Chart, drum & bass act Rudimental have had a knack for turning out festival-ready anthems. Since their 2012 debut the party-starting collective have been nominated for a Mercury Music Prize, won a MOBO, a BRIT and released multiple platinum-selling singles and albums.

The biggest girl band on the planet, Little Mix, have been on an incredible winning streak the last few years. After being the first British group to win The X Factor in 2011, they’ve gone on to have four multi-platinum selling albums, nine platinum singles and four UK number ones – including bangers like ‘Wings’, ‘Black Magic’ and ‘Shout Out to My Ex’. Their appearance in Sefton Park will be a UK festival exclusive.

Speaking about their excitement about the festival Rak-Su commented:

‘We’re blown away by the calibre of artists playing at Fusion Festival 2019. We’re buzzing to be on the line up with people like Little Mix and Clean Bandit. Liverpool crowds are always awesome so we can’t wait to get on stage this summer.’

The Liverpudlian festival had its most successful year to date in 2018, with an all-star bill including Years & Years, Jess Glynne, Shawn Mendes, David Guetta and Clean Bandit amongst many others. Now in its 7th year, Fusion is again teaming up with the UK’s number one hit music station, Capital, to promise music fans the biggest pop anthems around.
