RiZE Festival 2018: who will headline V Festival’s replacement?

Liam Gallagher and Stereophonics are headlining

The brand new V-Festival replacement RiZE will be offering a range of indie, pop, dance and urban acts across four stages at Hylands Park in Chelmsford this August. Here’s what we know about the festival so far:

Who’s headlining Rize Festival 2018?

Liam Gallagher and Stereophonics will be headlining this year’s inaugural Rize Festival.

Friday: Liam Gallagher 

Why he’ll be great: Following a sold-out UK tour last year to promote his debut album ‘As You Were’ which reached No.1 in the UK charts, we’re prepared for a show with a truly rock n’ roll performance from our outspoken Godlike Genius. Expect to hear his latest hits ‘Wall of Glass’ and ‘You Better Run’ and possibly a few Oasis covers to have you singing along.

Saturday:  Stereophonics

Why they’ll be great: With 10 diverse albums under their belt and not forgetting 2017’s ‘Scream Above The Sounds’ deliverance of huge anthems such as ‘Caught By The Wind’ and ‘What’s All The Fuss About’, the Welsh indie rockers are set to close the festival with a dynamic set.
