The SSE SWALEC announces the launch of ‘On The Pitch’, Cardiff’s summer celebration of live music on 16th and 17th July at the home of Glamorgan County Cricket Club. Chart-topping acts Kaiser Chiefs, Dizzee Rascal, Everything Everything, Nature and Tibet will take to the stage on Saturday 16th July and Simply Red, Ben Montague and Nathan Ball will perform on Sunday 17th July.
Headlining On The Pitch on Saturday will be Kaiser Chiefs, performing their anthemic collection of hits. Fronted by Ricky Wilson, who enjoyed a fresh rise to prominence in his role as a winning coach on The Voice, Kaiser Chiefs’ recent outdoor gigs Summer 2016 have sold out in record time.
Dizzee Rascal will bring his crowd-pleasing brand of rap, pop and grime in to the early evening slot with an extensive hit list. A past winner of the Mercury Music Prize, his critically acclaimed debut album Boy In The Corner paved the way for mainstream stardom in collaborations with Armand Van Helden and Calvin Harris. Indie-rock band Everything Everything are also on the bill with further acts to be added to the celebration of music.
On the Sunday, legendary Simply Red will be the headline act. The only back-to-back winners of the Brit Award for Best British Act, Simply Red have sold more than 60 million records and are celebrating 30 years in music with a world tour that now includes the Welsh capital at The SSE SWALEC’s On The Pitch.
