Derby Sound





The BIGGEST pop concert of the summer is set to land in Derby on Saturday 3 August 2019 at the Pattonair County Ground, home of Derbyshire County Cricket Club. Presented by DHIVE, Derby Sound will bring an incredible line-up of pop’s most exciting artists… Rudimental, Rita Ora, The Vamps and Rak-Su will each be taking to the stage for an unforgettable evening of summer sounds.

Rudimental are a drum and bass band, consisting of Piers Aggett, Amir Amor, Kesi Dryden and Locksmith, currently taking the charts by storm. The boys have already debuted two huge singles this year from their forthcoming new album Toast To Our Differences – the smash hit UK Number One These Days ft. Jess Glyne, Macklemore & Dan Caplen - currently the biggest-selling record of 2018 in the UK - and Let Me Live (prod. with Major Lazer) ft. Anne Marie and Mr. Eazi.

With two Number One albums and three Number One singles already under their belts, Rudimental have sold over 20 million singles and over two million albums – extraordinary numbers for a band who have consistently moulded new and inventive sounds to push the boundaries of conventional pop music.

Rita Ora has cemented herself as one of the UK’s most successful pop acts of the decade and shows no signs of slowing down in 2019. Since her rise to prominence in 2012 Rita has sold a staggering seven million singles, had 13 top ten hits and recorded a Number One platinum-selling debut album with Ora. Rita recently entered the Official Chart history books, breaking a record held for 30 years. The singer’s release, Let You Love Me, became her 13th Top 10, meaning Rita set a new UK chart record for the most Top 10 singles by a British female artist.

The Vamps burst on to the scene in 2013 - debuting at Numbers Two, Three and Two with their first three singles Can We Dance, Wild Heart and Last Night. Their debut album, 2014’s Meet The Vamps, was another smash, followed 18 quick months later by their second album, Wake Up. Along the way there were collaborations, with Demi Lovato (a duet on Somebody To You), Brooklyn Beckham (Wake Up), Shawn Mendes (Cecilia) and 20th Century Fox for the soundtrack of Kung Fu Panda 3). And in between already they’ve undertaken two world tours and an arena tour.Their fourth album Night & Day (Day edition) was released in 2018.

Rak-Su is a four-piece group from Watford who triumphed in The X Factor, in December 2017. Rak-Su – which stands for ‘tracks vs. suits’ and the juxtaposition of carefree youth and adult responsibilities – are not only the first male band to win the competition, but also the first ever X Factor act to have had three of their singles top the UK iTunes chart while being on the show, including original tracks Mona Lisa and I’m Feeling You. Dimelo - the group’s winners’ duet with Wyclef Jean and Naughty Boy - debuted at Number Two and has now been certified Silver, spending three weeks in the Top 10 of the Official UK chart.
