GuilFest 2011 - Razorlight
GuilFest organisers are delighted with their latest ‘Golden Touch’: confirmation that this year’s Saturday night headliners will be maverick indie rock outfit RAZORLIGHT!
Fronted by outspoken lead singer Johnny Borell, Razorlight are one of the key guitar bands of the last decade, having sold over 4 million albums, performed to sell-out crowds on arena tours and festivals, and featured on the front cover of magazines from NME to Vogue. Formed in London in the summer of 2002, the band shot to fame with their critically acclaimed 2004 debut album, ‘Up All Night’, reaching number 3 in the UK charts, and spawning no less than 5 UK top 40 singles including seminal classics “Somewhere Else” and “Golden Touch”.
Continuing their incredible success story, the bands’ self-titled second album debuted at number 1 in the UK, and featured the number 1 single “America”, leading to NME award nominations for ‘Best Band’ and ‘Best Album’, as well as BRIT Award nominations for ‘Best Song’ and ‘Best British Band’. ‘Slipway Fires’, Razorlight’s third album, got to number 4 in the UK album charts, featured the hit single “Wire to Wire”, and was awarded album of the month by Q magazine.
2011 sees Razorlight releasing their fourth studio album, a few weeks before their sure-to-be spectacular performance on GuilFest’s Main Stage on Saturday night this July.
Razorlight join already announced superstar James Blunt, who will be headlining the Main Stage on Sunday 17th July. Over the coming weeks, many more announcements will be made about who you can see on all the stages at GuilFest 2011, including the Rock Cave and Dance Tent, as well as the top performers you can see in the Comedy and Theatre Tents and everywhere else at the festival this year.
As regular GuilFest visitors will know, you can expect a massively eclectic variety of music and entertainment across the many different stages at the festival, as well as great facilities such as the Kidzone - easily one of the best festival children’s areas in the whole country!
GuilFest is an award winning, family-friendly festival with a wonderful atmosphere by which other festivals have come to be judged. 2011 is sure to be the biggest and best year yet – don’t miss out.
