Texas to headline Friday at Valley Fest, the family festival at Chew Valley Lake this summer
Valley Fest has announced that Texas will be headlining at the festival on Friday 30 July, replacing Travis who can no longer perform at the event this year, which is held between 30th July and 1st August.
Due to the ongoing travel and quarantine regulations, as well as the cancellation and postponement of a number of other UK and European festivals and concerts, Travis are unable to perform at Valley Fest or any other UK shows in 2021.
Texas will now headline Friday. Perfectly placed to get the festival off to a flying start, the band have sold more than 40 million albums worldwide in their 30-year career. Valley Fest is one of the very few opportunities to see them play this year.
On the back of a hugely successful career, Texas has a new album out: Hi which will be their 10th album. The previous one, Jump On Board, released in 2017 – debuted in the top 10 in most countries in Europe. They have had 13 top 10 singles on the UK Singles Chart, three number one albums and eight UK top ten albums on the UK Albums Chart, as well as being an Ivor Novello award winner.
Luke Hasell, Valley Fest founder, said: “Texas will be a huge hit as they’ve had such an incredible career – playing stadiums, arena tours and huge festivals such as Glastonbury. We’re so delighted that our crowd will be able to see them up close!
“Even in usual times line-ups can change and Covid-19 has thrown so much up into the air. Of course, we know how disappointed Travis fans are going to be and we hope to welcome them back again in years to come.”
