Tinie Tempah to Headline Party at the Proact

Tinie Tempah will headline this summer’ Party at the Proact on Sunday 8th June, joining Labrinth, Katy B, Lawson, Union and Miss Dynamite.

Multi-award winning rapper Tinie Tempah is the final act to join the bill for one of the summer hottest multi act line ups. Tinie’s success with number one hits ‘Written in the Stars’ and ‘Pass Out’ have propelled Tinie to ones of the hottest acts around. He released his first mixtape in 2005; his first album, Disc-Overy, debuted at number one in the UK in October 2010 and was preceded by two British number-one singles. In February 2011, he won two Brit Awards for Best British Breakthrough Act and Best British Single. 2011 and 2012 saw Tinie win Best UK Hip Hop/Grime Act at the MOBO awards for 2 years running.

Tinie commented “Really looking forward to performing in Chesterfield on the 8th June with my good friends Katy B, Labrinth and Ms Dynamite! Definitely will be a Party at the Proact when we all get there! We always have such fun together and the fans in Chesterfield are always brilliant. I love playing there!”

Chesterfield FC chairman Dave Allen commented "The addition to the Party at the Proact line-up of a major recording artist like Tinie Tempah, who has a string of hits to his name, is a real coup. With a whole host of other top names also on the bill, it promises to be an unforgettable event. With the legendary Tom Jones also performing at the Proact the day before, we are delighted to be providing top-class entertainment for all age groups over one weekend."

Labrinth is the multifaceted rising star of British music. He has already enjoyed considerable success; his first two singles Let The Sun Shine and Earthquake stormed the top 3 with the latter selling over 550,000 copies. And now he’s about to demonstrate his abilities across a range of sounds and styles on his debut long-playing record, Electronic Earth, an album that will establish the boy born Timothy McKenzie in Hackney, London in 1989 as a mercurial one-off, a maverick of the UK scene.

English singer and songwriter Katy B is currently enjoy chart topping success with her debut album ‘Little Red’ heading straight into the charts at No 1. Single ‘Broken Record’ won the 2012 NME Awards for Best Dance Floor Anthem.

Ms. Dynamite, is an English hip hop and R&B recording artist, rapper-songwriter, and record producer. She is the recipient of the Mercury Music Prize, two BRIT Awards and three MOBO Awards. In September 2002, Ms. Dynamite became the first black female artist achieving a Mercury Music Prize, beating favourites the Streets, the Coral, and even music legend David Bowie.

Chesterfield chairman Dave Allen commented "It was my vision to put on a second concert to appeal to a younger audience the day after the Tom Jones concert. I am delighted that we have been able to attract a number of exciting acts to the Proact. It promises to be an unforgettable weekend!"

Promoter Liz Doogan Hobbs MBE from Liz Hobbs Group said “we love the approach being taken by the club. They are working with us to ensure the band selection process is right and we just can´t wait to start the concert load in. Tom Jones tickets are flying and a more pop biased day is a great addition.”

Lawson have enjoyed chart success with ‘When She Was Mine’, ‘Taking Over Me’, ‘Standing In The Dark’ and ‘Learn To Love Again’ and features Chesterfield local-lad Ryan Fletcher on bass guitar. The rock / pop four-piece only released their first single in 2012 but already they’ve had five Top Five hits and a Top Ten debut album.
