'The Voice' and pop superstar Jessie J who has sold over 12 million records worldwide will be headlining the Saturday night slot at the 15,000 capacity ground.
Her single, 'Domino', was the most played song in the UK last year and was the first female artist to score six top ten hits from one album.
Jessie, who started her career as a songwriter writing lyrics for the likes of Chris Brown and Miley Cyrus before penning her triple platinum album; 'Who you are', is currently in the studio recording her eagerly awaited second album as well as being a mentor on 'The Voice'.
Friday 19th July promises a great party with 5ive, Blue, and Atomic Kitten continuing their recent huge success of the ITV2 Big Reunion. ?
