The Forest Live concerts began in 2001 at four Forestry Commission venues including Westonbirt. Now in its eighteenth season, Forest Live takes place at seven fantastic forest locations. The gigs are well known for their eclectic range of international artists, amazing atmosphere and their stunning locations.
Thursday 11 June - Rag'nBone Man
Having won the 2017 BRIT’s ‘British Breakthrough Act’ and receiving the BRIT’s Critics’ Choice Award in the same year, Rag‘n’Bone Man cemented his success with the record-breaking release of his four times platinum album Human and a further BRIT Award for ‘British Single’ for the title track ('Human') in 2018. The album has been recognised internationally, earning Rory sell-out tours and festival appearances around the globe.
Friday 12 June - James Morrison & Will Young
With the release of his debut album, ‘Undiscovered’, singer-songwriter, James Morrison was catapulted into the limelight. The album went on to sell over a million copies with fans being enraptured by the beauty of his once-in-a-generation voice. His five Top 10 singles all rank among the biggest of their era, including the breakthrough smashes ‘You Give Me Something’ and ‘Wonderful World’, plus the huge Nelly Furtado collaboration ‘Broken Strings’.
Will Young has spent much of the last two decades at the forefront of pop, having won the inaugural series of Pop Idol which shot him to national fame. A subsequent chart-storming career including seven top 5 albums (four reaching the top spot) and four number 1 singles including ‘Leave Right Now’ and ‘Jealousy’ ensures his standing as an iconic part of noughties UK pop culture.
Saturday 13 June - Madness
Drawing on their musical roots in ska, Madness were responsible for some of the most credible pop compositions of the eighties with their ability to write songs that sparkle with the spirit of British life. Creating their trademark ‘nutty’ sound, they spent more weeks in the charts in that decade than any other group, with classic hits such as ‘One Step Beyond’, ‘My Girl’, ‘Baggy Trousers’, ‘Embarrassment’, ‘Grey Day’, ‘House Of Fun’, ‘Driving In My Car’, ‘Our House’ and ‘Wings Of A Dove’.
Sunday 14 June - Keane
The band made a welcome return in 2019 after a six-year hiatus, with their latest studio album ‘Cause and Effect’ and a triumphant sold-out UK tour. This release follows on from their succession of previous No 1 albums that have accumulated over 13 million sales worldwide. Hit singles such as ‘Somewhere Only We Know’, ‘Everybody’s Changing’, ‘This Is The Last Time’ and ‘Bedshaped’, meant that ‘Hopes and Fears’ became one of the biggest selling albums in UK chart history and made Keane one of the most popular bands both in Britain and internationally.
