BAUER Media Scotland is delighted to announce a further five top chart acts for its annual summer extravaganza, In:Demand Live, which this year takes place from 2-6pm at the SECC, on Saturday 18th June.
With only five weeks to go, the bill so far is already ensuring the event retains its crown as Scotland’s biggest and best pop party.
And there will be loads more to see and do at the Exhibition Centre on the day of the show, details of which will be announced in the next fortnight.
Joining the first batch of names announced last month (Alexis Jordan, The Feeling, Wretch32, Example, Her Majesty and The Wolves, Wonderland and Yasmin) – are Chipmunk, Tinchy Stryder, Parade, Starboy Nathan plus one of the UK’s biggest-ever boybands, Blue!
Chipmunk shot to fame in 2009 with the release of his debut album – ‘I Am Chipmunk’.
An impressive five x Top Ten hits stemmed from that album including the huge number one, ‘Oopsy Daisy’.
This year is set to be another huge one for the 21 year-old with the release of his second album entitled ‘Transition’ which looks certain to cement his reputation as one of the brightest young hopes in UK Urban music.
New single, ‘In The Air’, is out now.
Following a blistering set at last year’s In Demand Live, Tinchy Stryder returns triumphant to this year’s show.
Not content with a string of top ten solo singles and collaborations and two massive albums, Tinchy Stryder has also developed and grown his own clothing line. ‘Star in the Hood’, named after his debut album.
The clothes are selling right around the world and the brand now counts many big name stars – including Rihanna – amongst its afficionados.
Tinchy is teaming up with one of his many showbiz mates – and NDubz frontman, Dappy, for his next single ‘Spaceship’ – taken from new album, Current Strike – which looks set to race to the top of the charts on release in early June.
Boy band Blue were a massive part of the pop music scene in the early noughties with three No.1’s, including ‘All Rise’ and ‘One Love’ and a jaw-dropping 16 million album sales.
They went off in various directions in 2006 to pursue individual projects from solo albums, acting roles and film direction to TV presenting… though the band never officially split.
Now, they’re back on the scene and planning to conquer Europe all over again hot on the heels of their (very respectable) showing at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest… their song, ‘I Can’, peaked at No.5 in the UK charts and the boys are promising great things with more singles on the horizon over the summer.
In:Demand Live is also welcoming one of the best up and coming UK girl bands around to this year’s show… Parade. The girls – Emily, Lauren, Bianca, Jessica and Sian – have already scored a massive Top Ten hit with their anthemic debut single ‘Louder’ which has seen them garner fans the length and breadth of the UK.
The girls’ vibrancy and style has seen many favourable comparisons to the Spice Girls and forthcoming single, Perfume (released 20th June), should cement that reputation yet further.
Starboy Nathan is fast becoming THE hot tip for 2011. Back when he was just 14, he sang for Alicia Keys who told him he reminded her of Jamie Foxx. More recently, he’s been picking up even more fans on the road with N-Dubz and JLS who he opened for on their massive arena tour.
Starboy’s looking set to shine brighter and brighter this year with more releases from his second studio album, ‘3D – Determination, Dedication, Desire’, following the last single, ‘Diamonds’, which achieved youth-anthem status.
Siobhan Crampsey, head of Events at Bauer Media, says: “The line-up for this year’s In Demand Live is shaping up brilliantly – we’ve already got a great mix of urban, electro and unadulterated pop and still have a few more great names to announce.
“All of the acts are champing at the bit to perform in front of a Scottish audience – some for the first time – and we know the In:Demand Live crowd will give them a very warm (and very loud!) welcome.”
