More stars to join Jess Glynne at Eisteddfod show

* Issey Cross. 

* The Mercians. 

Drum and Bass breakout star Issey Cross will support pop superstar Jess Glynne when she headlines the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod this summer.

Jess Glynne will perform a headline show on Friday July 12 and it is announced today she will be joined by Issey Cross and indie rock band The Mercians.

Tickets are on sale now from  

Rising vocalist and songwriter Issey Cross, who has just released latest single Energy In My Town, first burst onto the scene in 2021 with debut single Who. In 2022, her breakthrough hit Used To This, in collaboration with legendary producer Wilkinson, spent 14 weeks in the UK Top 40 and 12 weeks on the BBC Radio 1 Playlist.

Cross has worked with some of the industry’s biggest names including Nathan Dawe, Bru-C, Clean Bandit, Hybrid Minds and Ella Henderson. Her hits include Oh My, Sleepwalking and the Top 20 smash Bittersweet Goodbye, an acclaimed reworking of The Verve classic Bittersweet Symphony.

Opening the night will be The Mercians, an up-and-coming indie band with more than one million streams on Spotify. The band's sound is reminiscent of the British indie rock revival of the early 2000s but with a fresh and modern twist.

Jess Glynne has made history as the only female British solo artist to achieve seven number 1 hits on the UK Singles Chart. She first rose to fame with her remarkable vocals in Clean Bandit’s GRAMMY-winning Rather Be and Route 94’s My Love in 2014. Since then, she has dominated the UK charts with hits like I’ll Be There, Hold My Hand, and Don’t Be So Hard on Yourself.

Glynne’s two platinum-selling albums have both reached Number 1, earning her nine BRIT Award nominations, three Ivor Novello nominations, and a GRAMMY Award. Her music has been streamed more than 1.2 billion times!

After taking a short career break Glynne, who has delivered some of the most memorable dance-pop hits of the past decade, is back with new music for 2023. Her latest album Jess features the already released singles Silly Me, What Do You Do, Friend Of Mine and Enough. 

Glynne's headlining show is part of a series of concerts taking place as part of a new partnership between the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod and Live Nation promoters Cuffe and Taylor.

The legendary core week of the festival runs from July 2 – 7 and features concerts with Welsh icon Tom Jones, Katherine Jenkins, and international best-selling artist Gregory Porter.

Jess Glynne, Tom Jones, Katherine Jenkins and Gregory Porter join global rock stars Simple Minds, British pop giants Madness, indie heroes Kaiser ChiefsManic Street Preachers and Suede, BRIT award-winning artist Paloma Faith, disco legends Nile Rodgers & CHIC and global rock star Bryan Adams among the artists headlining dates on either side of the iconic peace festival in 2024.

Artistic Director at the Llangollen Eisteddfod Dave Danford said: “This year we wanted to make sure there was something for everybody, so we’re really excited to have Issey Cross bringing her eclectic electronic music sounds to North East Wales! She’s had some huge hits over the last couple of years, followed up with live performances at some of the biggest music festivals in the world. We can’t wait for her to raise the pavilion roof with her set in Llangollen!”
