Will Young

Will Young has spent much of the last two decades at the forefront of pop, having won the inaugural series of Pop Idol, which shot him to national fame. A chart-storming career followed including seven top 5 albums (four reaching the top spot) and four number 1 singles, including Leave Right Now and Jealousy ensuring his standing as an iconic part of noughties UK pop culture.

Llanfest has quickly become a firm favourite in the summer festival diary with outside stages featuring live music throughout the day and a chilled festival atmosphere in the spectacular setting of the Dee Valley.

Tickets for the International Eisteddfod are now on sale, with a star-studded selection of evening concerts, including Beverley Knight, Aled Jones and Russell Watson and Manchester Collective.

The International Eisteddfod’s Artistic Director, Dr Edward Rhys-Harry, said, “It’s always an exciting time here in Llangollen when we announce our headline acts for the Eisteddfod.

“James Morrison and Will Young have fantastic reputations as two of the UK’s best vocalist of the noughties. Llanfest promises to be a culmination of the Eisteddfod’s weeklong international celebrations.”

The announcement of the Eisteddfod’s 2020 line-up comes following a great deal of excitement surrounding the release of the collaborative album between Aled Jones and Russell Watson, Back in Harmony and the sell-out UK tour of Beverley Knight’s BK25.
