In a bid to banish the post Christmas blues, Silverstone have announced Busted, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Olly Murs as headliners for this years Silverstone Festival.
Set to take place over the August Bank Holiday Weekend (23rd – 25th), the much-loved family event doubles up as celebration of motorsport, with flat-out racing on the famous track from the pre-war era right the way through to more modern times taking place alongside a fun-filled music festival.
Hosting iconic British acts, Silverstone Festival is a key part of Silverstone’s continued drive to “bolster its off-track music and entertainment offering”.
Commenting on the three-day extravaganza, Silverstone’s Commercial Director Nick Read said: “We are thrilled to announce Busted, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Olly Murs as headliners for next year’s Silverstone Festival.”
“We are focussed on improving our off-track entertainment across all our events year on year, and 2024 feels really special for Silverstone Festival, Formula 1 British Grand Prix and British Grand Prix MotoGP! We cannot wait as Silverstone Festival brings the love of motorsport and music together in one place!”
“I can’t wait to see you all at the Silverstone Festival! I’ll have my dancing shoes on and you’d better too. Let’s have a party in the summer sunshine!”Sophie Ellis-Bextor
