Singer Jess Glynne has become the first major star to announce she’s staging a gig at Singleton Park next July.
Jess, who’s currently on a world tour to promote her chart-topping second album, will be playing to thousands of fans in the park on July 28.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, December 14 from 10am, and are available from Ticketmasters and Gigantic.
Labour Cllr Robert Francis-Davies, Cabinet Member for Innovation, Regeneration and Tourism, said: “There’s no doubt about it, showcasing Swansea on BBC’s Biggest Weekend last summer was a huge success.
“It’s proved not just to fans but to the management of some of the world’s biggest bands that we know how to put on a show.
“Jess Glynne will be following in the footsteps of the likes of Ed Sheeran, Florence and the Machine and Taylor Swift who were watched by 60,000 fans across the two days at the park and millions more on TV.
“We are thrilled to be seeing Jess Glynne next summer and we’re sure thousands of her fans will be making the trip to Swansea to enjoy the event.”
He added: “Singleton Park’s reputation as a top venue for outdoor concerts is growing every year and we’re sure there will be more great news to come.
“Everyone in the music industry is talking about us and that’s brilliant because they know the support we provide on the ground to facilitate shows of this kind is second to none.”
Arrangements for the event next year are still being finalised. Ticketing and site management will be the responsibility of Jess Glynne’s tour promoters Orchard Events.
Swansea Council and its partners will provide support outside the park with traffic management, car parking, sign-posting and other facilities. Residents will be kept informed as arrangements are worked out.
