Singer-songwriter Yungblud has announced he will be bringing a festival entitled BludFest to the National Bowl in Milton Keynes.

The singer will be performing a headline set as part of his own self-curated festival at the Milton Keynes Bowl on Sunday 11th August 2024, which will be the first edition of BludFest.

The show is the singer’s first confirmed UK date of 2024, with the announcement confirming tickets will start from £49.50 plus booking fees.

Tickets to BludFest will go on sale on Friday (22/03) from 10am, with a fan pre-sale going live on Thursday (21/03) at 10am.

As well as Yungblud, six other names have been confirmed as support acts, including American rapper Lil Yachty, who has recently done a song with Yungblud, along with British rock act Soft Play, formerly known as Slaves, American singer-songwriter Nessa Barrett, rock icons The Damned, and British singers Lola Young and Jazmin Bean.

Further names are to be announced, while in an interview with NME, Yungblud said other additions to the festival site will include a “Make a Friend” tent, a museum with stuff through his career and a recreation of Camden’s Hawley Arms pub. Further attractions will also be announced in due course.

The event will be the third to take place at the Milton Keynes Bowl in 2024, along with the Reggae Land Music Festival and a headline performance by Chase & Status. The event continues the return of the Bowl to hosting live music events, having been on a hiatus between hosting the Electric Daisy Carnival in 2016 and hosting both rock band Muse & the Reggae Land Festival in 2023.

In a statement on social media, Yungblud said, “5 years ago we imagined a world of our own. In @blud_fest we are physically going to build one. This will be a physical safe space where people can come and celebrate the ideologies of this community – where unity, individuality and love is the main focus and we bring the world of Yungblud to fucking life right before your eyes. I wanted to build an experience where anyone can be completely themselves, with their friends, their family or completely on their own. I want to create an experience that blurs the lines of genre, destroys the limitation of imagination, cuts the corporate bullshit and is all about people coming together.”

Yungblud, real name Dom Harrison, has released three studio albums, with both 2020’s Weird! and 2022’s self-titled albums reaching number one in the UK album charts. A new as-yet untitled album is expected at some point in 2024. He has also previously won a Best Live Act award from the Silver Clef Awards, as well as further recognition from the NME Awards, Attitude Awards and Los 40 Music Awards.
