Henley Festival 2014 lineup revealed
Published 20/02/14



BRYAN FERRY will be among the headline acts at this year’s Henley Festival.

The former Roxy Music singer will perform on the opening night, Wednesday, July 9.

Other performers will include 85-year-old crooner Burt Bacharach, soul singer Joss Stone and pop music’s most famous brothers, The Jacksons.

The main act to appear on the “floating stage” on the final evening of the five-night festival will be announced in the near future.

Stone, 26, said: “I am really looking forward to performing at the Henley Festival. To play such a beautiful location will make it a very special day.”

A total of 5,000 tickets are available for each night of the black-tie event, which also offers fine dining and a selection of comedy shows, art and sculpture exhibitions and quirky street theatre performers from around the world. Each night’s performance will be followed by the traditional fireworks.

Stewart Collins, the festival’s creative director, said: “This truly is one incredible line-up. We’ve continued to raise the bar at the Henley Festival year on year for some time now but I have to say that the mix of headline UK and international artists lined up for our floating stage is absolutely fabulous.

“For the first time ever we have major household names performing across the series of evenings, so if you add this to the highest-profile supporting programme we’ve had for years, and the raft of trademark surprises and innovations, it’s easy to feel extremely excited about the prospects for this coming July!”

As reported in last week’s Henley Standard, the festival has partnered with the Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts. This will enable the event to help more disadvantaged children and organisers have pledged a minimum of £50,000 a year to the charity for the next three years.

This year’s festival runs from July 9 to July 13. Tickets will go on general sale on March 24. To book or for more information, visit www.henley-festival.co.uk
