Wednesday 3rd  & Thursday 4th June - Bastille Re-Orchestrated

Due to phenomenal demand, Brit Award nominees Bastille will take to the stage for a second date at this year's Hampton Court Palace Festival.  Following their 2018 ReOrchestrated tour, the evening will see the band reprise a selection of songs from their last three albums; re-imagining, deconstructing and rearranging the songs with a 20-piece orchestra and choir.

Friday 5th June - Rick Astley

It’s one of contemporary music’s most unlikely tales. At the age of 21, Rick Astley emerged from the shadows of the Stock, Aitken and Waterman production house as their former tea boy became one of the biggest stars on the planet. His era-defining classic ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ topped charts the world over and catapulted the young Lancastrian on a journey that would encompass 8 consecutive UK Top 10 hits and 40 million sales.

Saturday 6th June - Lighthouse Family

For the first time ever, Lighthouse Family, one of the biggest British bands of the mid-late Nineties, will be taking to the stage at this year's Festival.  Originally hailing from Newcastle, the acclaimed duo (vocalist Tunde Baiyewu and keyboardist Paul Tucker) began their musical career almost 25 years ago. Their first single, Lifted, was one of the defining songs of the era, an uplifting pop-soul classic that dominated radio playlists. Three further hit singles followed: Ocean Drive, Loving Every Minute and Goodbye Heartbreak.

Tuesday 9th & Wednesday 10th June - Tom Jones

Tom Jones’ 50+ year career has remarkably gone from strength to strength. Along with sustaining his popularity as a live performer and recording artist for five decades, he has garnered at the age of 75, the best reviews of his career for his most recent albums Long Lost SuitcaseSpirit In The Room and Praise & Blame

Thursday 11th & Tuesday 16th June - Lionel Richie

International superstar Lionel Richie has a discography of albums and singles that are second to none. His music is part of the fabric of pop music; in fact, Richie is one of only two songwriters in history to achieve the honor of having #1 records for nine consecutive years.

Friday 12th June - Dido

After five years of silence, Dido is back. Still On My Mind wafts in like a beautiful breeze, a chilled out tumble of sadness and joy, melancholy and bliss.  That familiar voice is fully present, soft, intimate and delightfully conversational, caressing melodies over a subtle flow of beats, with an aching catch that tugs at the heart strings.

Saturday 13th June - Björn Again

Global sensation Björn Again return to the Hampton Court stage with a sensational show of much-loved ABBA songs and 70’s fun, for one night only.  Björn Again has performed in 71 countries over 34 years, amassing over 5,000 performances and is acknowledged for initiating the ABBA revival.

Friday 19th June - George Benson

George Benson gets back to Americana basics on Walking to New Orleans, the singer-guitarist's tribute to both piano-pounding Crescent City hit machine Fats Domino and the original rock guitar hero and poet, Chuck Berry. "I'm a great appreciator of the music made by both of those guys," the 10-time Grammy winner says of his double-barreled tribute. "They were fantastic. Chuck Berry was a great showman and a great musician, and Fats Domino cut nothing but hit after hit after hit."
