26/06/2014The British Isle's most Southerly music festival is back after 2013’s landmark 10th anniversary.

The Jersey Live organisers are delighted to announce that the first Jersey Live headliner to be revealed is none other than last week’s BRIT Award 2014 winner for Best British Female, Ellie Goulding, who tops the bill on the Saturday night (August 30th) on the Main Stage. Following in the footsteps of previous Jersey Live headliners The Prodigy, Paul Weller, Fatboy Slim, Kasabian and Snow Patrol, she’s the latest big star to fill the prestigious headline slot at Jersey Live, and the first of many announcements due over the coming weeks and months.

The chart-topping, award-winning, multi platinum-selling Ellie Goulding comes to Jersey Live with not only one of British music’s most high profile prizes fresh in the memory, but a hugely successful recent history behind her: in 2010 she became only the second artist to both top the influential BBC Sound Of… poll and win the BRIT Awards Critics’ Choice prize after Adele’s win of both in 2008, she has sold an estimated three million albums and ten million singles worldwide, both of her albums so far (2010’s Lights and 2012’s Halcyon) soaring to the top of the UK album charts.

Although initially emerging as a folk-tinged singer-songwriter in 2010, she has since gone on to collaborate with the likes of Tinie Tempah and producers Skrillex and Calvin Harris, firmly establishing her credentials amongst dance music fans. She’s opened for U2, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry, her talent winning her fans on both sides of the Atlantic, with appearances on Saturday Night Live and Jimmy Kimmel Live as well as alongside will.i.am at the White House for the National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony evidence of her sky high profile Stateside.

With five UK top five singles to add to her list of achievements, she comes to Jersey Live as a true star, and is an artist with a genuine depth to her creative output. Her inspirations are diverse with intrepid artists such as Bjork, Imogen Heap, Lauryn Hill, Joni Hill and Kanye West adding to the melting pot of her influences, her style is one that perfectly fuses electronica with her folk roots and her voice is at once exhilarating, sorrowful, childlike and charged with emotion. It’s truly an original one, as the Jersey Live audience will no doubt testify to come August 30th.

Ellie Goulding is just the first of many live acts, DJs, comedians, children’s entertainers, spoken word artists and other performers to be announced, with more to be revealed soon. The 10,000 capacity festival boasts five stages in total: The Main Stage, Dance Stage hosting stellar indie and dance acts, with the JT Stage serving up the best in local and up-and-coming international bands. The cosy Hospitality Stage is set to return once again, offering Hospitality ticket holders the chance to enjoy intimate performances by Main Stage acts as well as exclusive performances not available elsewhere at Jersey Live. The Kids Field Big Top Stage will host children’s entertainers, expect to see acts as diverse as cbeebies, animal man, magician’s and much much more! Don’t forget too the incredible fairground, food village, craft stalls, face painters, candyfloss, smoothies, hot dogs….the ultimate adventure playground!

New additions to the festival this year are the Kids Field and Par 4; the Par 4 area was introduced in 2012 but this year combined with the Kids Field will be larger than ever with children’s entertainers, circus performers, comedy acts and theatrical installations forming this magical corner of the festival. The Kids Field and Par 4 replaces the Folklore Stage, which was introduced at last year’s festival and hosted live music, spoken word and comedy.

Despite the relative snugness of the boutique festival, Jersey Live has attracted some of the world’s most celebrated artists over the years, including such mammoth names as Snow Patrol, The Prodigy, Dizzee Rascal, Kasabian and Paul Weller, with acts such as Foals, Ed Sheeran, Tinie Tempah and Django Django amongst some of those who have performed at Jersey Live as fledgling outfits before going on to achieve A-list status on the festival circuit.

Aside from the music, the key ingredients that make Jersey Live so special are its unique setting – as the British Isles’ most southerly festival destination, Jersey enjoys more sunshine per annum than any other place in the UK, and Jersey Live’s delightfully quaint rural surroundings in the Parish of Trinity have to be seen to be believed – and its warm and welcoming crowd. Many a visitor has discovered the island through venturing to Jersey Live and made it a holiday destination of choice for years after; with miles and miles of stunning beaches, cliff top walks, unrivalled restaurants and vibrant St Helier nightlife, who can blame them?

Co-organiser Warren Holt:

“ I’m very excited to make our first headliner announcement, and we’re delighted to reveal that as Ellie Goulding. As her recent win at the BRIT Awards shows, she’s one of the UK’s biggest stars right now and is just the first of lots of really exciting announcements to be made ahead of our eleventh festival. It’s incredible to think that someone who has sold so many millions of records and has made such a big impact not just in the UK but in the States too – a notoriously tough nut to crack for us Brits – has only been around for a couple of years, and we’re counting down the days until August 30th. Get your limited early bird tickets when they go on sale on the 2nd March!”
