Rudimental are to headline The Hundred Final at Lord’s on Sunday, August 27.
The Hundred cricket tournament’s music line-up has been unveiled today (June 14).
Rising star Dylan will perform at the opening game at Trent Bridge on August 1, followed by a music line-up at the matches including chart-topping Manchester band Lottery Winners, Caity Baser, DeadLetter, Asha Gold, Tara Lily, Prima Queen, Mysie, Yazmin Lacey and many more throughout August. The full line-up is below.
Launched in 2021, The Hundred brings together cricket with entertainment. For the third year running, The Hundred has curated its music line-up in collaboration with BBC Music Introducing. The partnership gives BBC Music Introducing artists a platform to perform live in front of crowds at the UK’s biggest cricket grounds, including Lord’s (London), The Kia Oval (London), Edgbaston (Birmingham), Emirates Old Trafford (Manchester), Sophia Gardens (Cardiff), Headingley (Leeds), Ageas Bowl (Southampton) and Trent Bridge (Nottingham).
Rudimental said: “We’re excited to perform at The Hundred Final this year. We’re massive sports fans so we’re looking forward to the match. Also, we love that BBC Music Introducing is involved as we’re big supporters of working with emerging talent, so this is a fantastic platform for sports fans to pick up on new music. Looking forward to performing at this great event.”
Rudimental have just scored their sixth Top 10 entry, and first in more than five years, with Dancing Is Healing, which also features Charlotte Plank & Vibe Chemistry.
In its first two years, The Hundred has played host to headliners Bastille and Jax Jones, as well as Becky Hill, Everything Everything and Self Esteem.
As well as the line-up of live music, 2023 sees the return of The Hundred’s resident DJs at each venue, including Charlie Burley (Trent Rockets) and Emily Pilbeam (Northern Superchargers), as well as new additions including BBC Radio 1’s Sam & Danni (Welsh Fire) and Char Stape (Southern Brave).
