Saturday 1 June
Clean Bandit have consistently pushed the boundaries of modern pop with their diverse blend of electronic, dancehall, classical, R&B and pop.
Their breakthrough success came in 2014 with the single Rather Be, feat. Jess Glynne, a Grammy award-winning worldwide hit that has now surpassed 10 million global sales. In 2016, they released their 10 million-selling single Rockabye feat. Sean Paul and Anne-Marie. Shooting to #1 in more than 40 countries and having spent nine weeks at the top of the charts in the UK, the track became the longest-running UK #1 in 22 years surpassing Wet Wet Wet’s Love Is All Around.
They recently received two BRIT Award nominations for their 2018 smash Solo feat. Demi Lovato, which became their fourth UK number 1. The band have now notched up 9 UK top five singles, more than Bruno Mars or Adele.
