Olly Murs confirms his final line-up at Colchester Castle Park

PUBLISHED: 21 April 2023

Olly Murs has today confirmed he will be joined by Dagny and Sam Tompkins with Special Guests Scouting For Girls at Colchester Castle Park on Sunday, 27 August 2023.

With over one billion streams, Norway’s most exciting artist and live performer Dagny joins the line-up. For Dagny it all came together for the first time when her single ‘Blackbeat’ surprised the industry in 2015. The road to international attention was quite short as the track rose the charts in multiple territories, resulting in over 45 million cumulative streams.

Having been critically acclaimed by everyone from Nylon and Billboard to The Guardian and Harper’s Bazaar, Dagny has proved she was far from a one hit wonder having released ‘Ultraviolet’ in the same year as ‘Blackbeat’ as well as hit singles ‘Wearing Nothing’ and ‘Love You Like That’ in 2017. Before the release of her debut album in 2020 which contained singles like ‘Come Over’ and her award multi-platinum mega hit ‘Somebody’, Dagny helped co-write Katy Perry’s ‘Never Really Over’ which is closing in on 1 billion streams to date.

Being often compared to Sam Fender’s anthemic truth-seeking or Tom Walker’s revelatory autobiography, Sam Tompkins completes the Castle Park bill this summer. Whilst having Justin Bieber as a prominent supporter who he hosted a sensational IG Live with in Lockdown - which is one of the most memorable and fulfilling achievements in Sam’s life - pop phenomenon Bebe Rexha co-signed his work. Tompkins has a colossal online audience with Elton John and Sam Smith also being fans of the singer.

Well known for his viral hit ‘To The Moon’ with JNR Choi which has amassed over 230 million Spotify streams, it has seen the star sell out UK Tours performing to more than 20,000 people; packing out London’s huge Kentish Town Forum. His recent achievement might be Sam’s most important to date. A seven-track project ‘who do you pray to?’ is a revelatory experience, that emphasises both his maturity and his creative flexibility.

Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, CEO of Grandslam Live Ltd said, “We are delighted to confirm the full line-up for Olly’s return to his hometown at Colchester Castle Park this summer. We know that Olly will put on an amazing show, which now promises to be another epic party over the bank holiday weekend with these incredible additions to the line-up!”
