Years & Years, Wolf Alice, James Bay and more set for Vevo Halloween 2015
Dust your best fancy dress outfit off as the biggest Halloween party of the year is back!
Vevo will be hosting their annual Vevo Halloween event at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse once again, featuring an incredible line up of some of 2015 biggest names for 5,000 music fans. The event, which takes place on Saturday 31st October will host full live performances from 2015 Vevo LIFT artists James Bay, Little Simz, Nothing But Thieves, Wolf Alice and Years & Years.
Vevo LIFT UK launched in 2011 as a way of celebrating new talent and introducing emerging artists to music fans. Vevo Halloween 2015 is a celebration of the year’s LIFT artists and a rare opportunity for fans to see five of the best new artists the UK has to offer at one incredible event.
With a ‘Circus of the Damned’ theme and the return of Vevo’s infamous Scare Maze, clowns will ensure gig-goers are all kept on their toes. Vevo has commissioned award winning Shaune Harrison to create the prosthetics for the actors around the venue and in the maze. Harrison was the man behind the incredible prosthetics from Harry Potter, Marvel Films and World War Z, with him on board Vevo Halloween 2015 will be one hell of a night to remember.
Tickets go on sale at 9am Thursday 10th September priced at just £5 (including booking fees) from http://www.vevo.com/halloween (Guests have to be aged 18 and over)
James Bay, who won The BRITs Critics’ Choice award earlier this year, released his debut album ‘Chaos and The Calm’ in March, hitting the top spot in the UK and achieving platinum status.
“Ready to get spooky with Vevo and everyone in Manchester this Halloween. Can't wait! See you at the Warehouse.”
Little Simz, the fiercely independent London hip-hop wordsmith who is making waves on both sides of the Atlantic, is currently putting the finishing touches to her debut album, which will be released later on this year.
"For me, it’s an honour to be part of Vevo Halloween and LIFT. To have Vevo supporting me, I couldn’t ask for more than that, and I can’t wait for the show on 31st October.”
Nothing But Thieves are set to release their debut album on October 16th through RCA Records. Championed by Radio 1, they’ve toured with the likes of George Ezra, Arcade Fire and Twin Atlantic and have just launched their new single ‘Wake Up Call’.
“Halloween, The Warehouse, Manchester. Perfect. Can’t wait to play, see you there.”
Wolf Alice’s debut album ‘My Love Is Cool’ was released earlier this summer, going straight in at No. 2 in the charts, following a breathtaking start to the year with sold-out tours across North America, Europe and the UK. They recently performed at London’s Brixton Academy and are now on their biggest tour to date.
Winners of the BBC Sound of 2015 poll, Years & Years have had huge chart success with their infectious electro-pop with their debut album ‘Communion’ going straight to No 1 in the UK album chart. The trio are currently touring America and Canada and will be back in the UK in October for a string of shows across the country.
