L Fest bosses have announced Sian Evans, the former voice of band Kosheen, as the Saturday night headline act for this year's festival.
Up until 2015, Welsh singer/songwriter Sian Evans was known for being the front woman and singer-songwriter of the band Kosheen, a popular and well respected trip-hop/drum’n’bass group that, during that decade, placed two albums within the Top Ten of the U.K. album chart.
After having spent almost two decades writing and performing with Kosheen all over the world including Australia, Russia, Japan and the USA to name only a few, as well as countless UK and European festivals Sian left the band to pursue her solo career.
In 2011, Sian Evans teamed up with DJ Fresh, writing and featuring on the number 1 smash hit 'Louder'. The song debuted at number 1 in the UK Singles Chart, UK Dance Chart, UK Indie Chart and the Scottish Charts with first week sales in excess of 140,000 copies. Sian also penned 'Hot Right Now' for Rita Ora, providing her with her first ever number 1 hit.
Festival Director Cindy Edwards said: "We are so excited for the festival this year, we have many new things, of course including a brand new festival site in Loughborough and I'm delighted with our first big announcment, Sian Evans as headliner.
"Looking at the growth of L Fest over the years, its so exciting to see acts that have toured the world with number 1 hits, playing on our stage!''
L Fest takes place between Friday 21 and Monday 24 June and tickets are now available.
