Fusion Festival 2016: ‘Did you know’ Facts About the Sunday Line Up

Sunday……a day of rest…..unless you’ve got tickets to Fusion Festival 2016, which hits Otterspool in just two days!

We’ve rounded up a tonne of interesting facts about the Sunday acts taking to the stage right here. Did you know Fleur East can touch her nose with her tongue and Jason Derulo was almost a pro-basketball player? More on the Saturday headliners here.

Olly Murs

Olly Murs

Olly is Pop’s mister nice guy- everyone loves him! When he visited Liverpool recently he was swarmed by fans by St Johns Beacon and was there later than most of the staff signing autographs and posing for pictures. Aww. Not short on fans, Olly, who once appeared on Deal or No Deal (he only won a tenner) will take to the stage on Sunday and will no doubt make a few hearts skip…..skip….skip….skip……skip….skip a beat. (Sorry)

 

The Vamps

The Vamps

There’s so much love in Liverpool for band members Bradley, James, Connor and Tristan that we’re expecting a whole load of screaming Vampettes to descend on Otterspool this Sunday. The bands rise to fame started back in 2013 when they suported McFly on their Memory Lane tour and did you know they’ve gone on to support some huge acts such as Little Mix, Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift? They sure know how to rock a festival like Fusion and we can wait to sample the atmosphere when they take to the stage.

 

Busted

Returning to Liverpool after rocking the Echo Arena back in May, Busted are ready to bring their gigantic hits to Fusion Festival 2016. Did you know Matt Willis is also a talented actor having played a number of characters on Casualty, The Bill and has been an extra on Eastenders! Get your air guitar skills ready to rock out to ‘Year 3000’ ‘What I Go To School For’ and ‘Crashed The Wedding’ in your hunters this Sunday.

 

Ella Henderson

Fresh from her performance at The Big Festival in the Cotswolds last weekend, Ella has had a busy 2016 so far. She’s been busy in the studio writing and recording a track for new film ‘Despite The Falling Snow’ is set to bring her stunning vocals to Fusion Festival this weekend. Did you know Ella wrote her platinum selling song ‘Ghost’ with One Republic’s Ryan Tedder in just 10 minutes??! We’re looking forward to belting it our own version alongside Ella this weekend!

 

DJ Fresh

Real name Daniel Stein, DJ Fresh is responsible for producing our fave gym track ‘Hot Right Now’ when he collaborated with Rita Ora back in 2012 and has a string of successes since. Selling 2.8 millions records world wide and with 8 top ten singles under his belt including ‘Earthquake’ ‘Gravity’ and ‘Louder’ featuring a wealth of stunning vocalists. Did you know DJ fresh fans discuss his ice white hair do on social media almost as much as his music, there are Pinterest boards dedicated to his barnet and everything?! What an icon!

 

Lawson

Pop rockers Andy, Ryan, Joel and Adam make a welcome return to Liverpool and with 7 top 20 UK singles to their name we’re predicting some seriously sore throats on Monday from belting out their hits. Everyone knows the band name comes from Dr David Lawson who performed life-saving surgery on lead singer Andy, but did you know the band was known as ‘The Groves’ before signing to Polydor Records as Lawson in 2011. We’re limbering up to hit the high notes in ‘Standing in the Dark’ this Sunday.
