Two popular concert series have announced their first headliners for the summer season.
Greenwich Music Time returns from 22-25 July after an inaugural 2014 event that saw more than 16,000 ticketgoers gather at the Old Royal Naval College to see the likes of Goldfrapp, Australian Pink Floyd Show, Jools Holland and Russell Watson.
The four-day event has confirmed its first acts for 2015 – Gipsy Kings (23 July), Ray Davies (24 July), and George Benson (25 July).
“We have a long-term vision for the series,” said organiser Peter Taylor. “We hope that we will be presenting world-class musicians and entertaining thousands of revellers at this incredible world heritage listed site in Greenwich for many years to come.”
Meanwhile, Cheltenham Jazz Festival has confirmed its line-up for the April 2015 event.
Running from 29 April to 4 May, the six-day event will host stars including Caro Emerald, Gregory Porter, Wilko Johnson, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Rumer, Gilles Peterson, Squarepusher, Laura Mvula, Sun Ra Arkestra, and Tony Allen.
Jamie Cullem returns to the festival as its guest director, handpicking events for the programme, as well as performing with US jazz funk jam band Medeski, Martin & Wood.
BBC Radio 2 will also be on hand again, airing live shows from the festival.
Further act announcements from both events are expected in the coming months.
