There’s nothing like a major football tournament in the sunshine to bring people together, as we learnt back in the summer of 2018. So, after what has been an incredibly tough year for all, many are now relishing the prospect of Euro 2020 finally getting underway on Friday. Scotts have further fuelled the buzz with the announcement of ‘Football Fest’, bringing together music and sport in collaboration with new music gurus, This Feeling.
The first event will be held on Saturday at The Bread Shed in Manchester, bringing forward an array of the finest UK musical talent to warm fans up for the big games ahead. There are seven different events in total, with Trampolene and Megan Wyn performing at the first show on June 12th.
Also performing at Football Fest will be the Lightning Seeds, which will be music to the ears of England fans. The band, of course, are responsible for the iconic track ‘Three Lions’, which has been a staple fan favourite at all major tournaments since its release in 1996. The full lineup of artists is as follows.
Saturday, June 12th, 2PM kick-off: Wales v Switzerland, featuring Trampolene and Megan Wyn.
Sunday, June 13th, 2PM kick-off: England v Croatia, featuring Lottery Winners and Serotones.
