Brit nominated super-group Rudimental will be taking to the stage at Medway’s Rochester Castle Concerts this summer.
With two number one albums and three number one singles already under their belts, Rudimental have sold more than 20 million singles and over two million albums.
The genre-defying four-piece from east London will be performing a DJ set in the grounds of Rochester Castle on Wednesday, July 10.
Having already released two huge singles last year from their new album – the smash hit UK number one These Days and Let Me Live – Rudimental’s third album Toast To Our Differences is an eclectic mix of upbeat party anthems and boasts an extraordinary list of collaborators.
Rudimental – made up of Amir Amor, DJ Locksmith, Piers Aggett and Kesi Dryden – were nominated for British single and British video at this year’s Brit Awards.
These Days, which featured fellow Concerts performer Jess Glynne, Macklemore and Dan Caplen, was the biggest-selling record of last year in the UK, amassing 800 million global streams and going Double-Platinum in the UK.
Let Me Live, which was produced with Major Lazer, featuring Anne-Marie and Mr. Eazi, clocked up more than 74 million streams.
With much of last summer spent on tour, as well as overseeing a coveted weekly residency at Ibiza Rocks, the group worked hard on putting the final touches to an album which joins the dots between their remarkable, hit-making pedigree and ability to discover and nurture exciting new talent.
Jess Glynne was previously announced as the act to perform on Thursday, July 11 while Britain’s Got Talent winners Collabro, the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and Laura Wright will bring the four-night event to a close on Saturday, July 13.
Cllr Howard Doe, who is in charge of community services, said: “It’s really great that yet another international act has signed to perform in Medway this year. We’re delighted to be welcoming such an acclaimed group to Rochester Castle Concerts this summer and have them join the exciting line-up.”
Tickets go on sale on Monday at 10am and cost £48.50 per person with no booking fees.
