Joining Ezra will be fellow chart-topping singer, Jess Glynne, returning to the city following her own huge headline arena tour. Pop royalty, Rita Ora, who recently broke a long-standing record for the most Top Ten songs by a British female solo artist, will also perform.
Adding to the incredible line-up is DJ and hitmaker, Jax Jones and Scandi pop sensation, Sigrid. Highly tipped singer-songwriter, Tom Walker will also head to Liverpool for the incredible event, as will X Factor 2017 winners, Rak-Su, whose newest single ‘I Want You To Freak’ is already a mainstay staple of the Radio City playlist. Last but certainly not least is DJ/ Producer James Hype who has recruited the one and only Craig David for his new track.
The event will be hosted by Radio City Breakfast’s Leanne & Dave, as well as presenter Sarah Jane Crawford who hosts the evening show on Radio City and across the Hits Radio Network. Hits Live will also take place in Birmingham and Manchester in November, creating one unmissable weekend.
