Lily Allen announces huge UK festival comeback show with a pop AF line-up

The Mighty Hoopla returns

Lily Allen has announced details of a huge UK festival slot, as she’s among the names heading to London’s The Mighty Hoopla.

Allen recently returned with a new single, her Giggs collaboration ‘Trigger Bang’, before revealing that her follow-up to 2014’s ‘Sheezus’ will be titled ‘No Shame’, arriving in “early Summer 2018”.

After announcing details of a UK tour last month, now she’s been confirmed for The Mighty Hoopla Festival.


Renowned for its pop-heavy line-up and care-free hedonistic vibe, The Mighty Hoopla will also see performance from Melanie C, Vengaboys, B*Witched, Nimmo, Belinda Carlisle, Glitterbox, The Glory, The Grand, Louisa Johnson, Guilty Pleasures, Sink The Pink and Bongo’s Bingo, with many moire to be announced.

This year’s Mighty Hoopla will be held on Sunday June 3 at Brockwell Park. Tickets are available here.

Last month, Allen criticised the Wireless Festival line-up for only including three women.

The three-day London event will take place at Finsbury Park between July 6-8, and will be headlined by J. ColeStormzy, and DJ Khaled.

Allen posted a new version of the line-up poster on Twitter with all the male artists playing removed. The only acts remaining on the poster are MabelCardi B, and Lisa Mercedez. She captioned the post: “The struggle is real”.
