In a new partnership with Universal Music, Global Entertainment, and Capital FM, and continuing last year’s partnership with Showcase Live! Island Beats will see acts including The Vamps, Ella Eyre, Rizzle Kicks, and Connor Maynard perform at the resort in ‘intimate performances’ alongside extended ride time until 10pm. With the main stage located in the heart of the park in Lost City, guests will be able to enjoy music in a unique intimate setting.
Current confirmed dates and acts are:
- 11th July: The Vamps
- 24th July: Ella Eyre
- 1st August: Rizzle Kicks
- 21st August: Conor Maynard
This latest live music line up follows on from last season’s Thorpe Park Live, which saw the resort showcase a selection of the best unsigned music acts throughout the summer of 2014 in partnership with Showcase Live! Island Beats looks set to build upon the success of those events. Regular visitors will note that the dates of the concerts co-incide with the dates the resort usually hold their Summer Nights events which in past seasons has seen the park open until 10pm on Friday and Saturday evenings throughout July and August. At this time it is unknown if the new live music events will be replacing Summer Nights, or if Summer Nights will be returning in a reduced capacity.
