GLOBAL SUPERSTAR JESS GLYNNE WILL HEADLINE AN EXCITING NEW MUSIC FESTIVAL IN ACCRINGTON.jpg.jpg

Grammy award winning singer-songwriter Jess Glynne will headline a brand new quarter of a million pounds music festival this September at the iMEP Arena in Accrington.

The iMEP Music Festival, organised by iMEP International Music Event Production, will take place on Saturday 21st September 2024 at the home of Accrington Cricket Club.

200 early bird tickets for just £40 went on sale at 5pm on Friday 24th May. Demand is expected to be high, with East Lancashire fans desperate to see global superstar Glynne and an exciting line-up of support acts, which are yet to be announced.

General admission for the iMEP Music Festival will be £50, with priority entry tickets available for £65. 50 VIP tickets will also be on sale for the concert, priced at £100, which will provide access to a VIP Lounge area, arrival drinks, promotional materials, canapes, as well as access to the VIP private bar and VIP viewing of the gig.

Tickets will be available from www.universe.com/imep

Fans are also being encouraged to visit the iMEP website, www.imep.co.uk, and follow their social media channels for further updates: https://www.facebook.com/iMEPGlobal, https://x.com/imepuk and https://www.instagram.com/imep_uk.

The voice behind Clean Bandit’s “Rather Be”, Route 94’s “My Love”, Rudimental’s “These Days” with Macklemore, and the extremely popular “Hold My Hand” as featured on the Jet2 advert, Glynne is an icon around the world.

The only British female solo artist to have seven no.1 singles on the UK Singles Chart, Glynne was also considered one of the “Most Influential People Under 30” by Forbes magazine in 2019.

With ten billion global streams, Glynne recently announced her long awaited third studio album ‘Jess’ which was released in late April.

Eddy O’Brien, CEO of iMEP, said: “We are ecstatic to announce that international, award-winning star Jess Glynne will headline the quarter of a million pound iMEP Music Festival this September.

“We have been planning this concert for some time now and to have such a huge star like Jess performing here in Accrington is going to be an incredible spectacle and one which we are thoroughly looking forward to.

“Demand is already extremely high for the festival and with a capacity of 6,000, we would recommend that fans keep an eye on our website and social media channels for further updates.”

Speaking about her brand new album, Glynne said: "If I was to summarise this album, firstly I would say that this album is unapologetically me, which is why I had to call it Jess. It’s about moving on and allowing myself to be secure, empowered, sexy, vulnerable and strong. I’ve allowed myself to be raw and honest with my lyrics. 

“It’s realising why I love and got into music. Listening to artists like Amy Winehouse, Joni Mitchell, Lauryn Hill, and Prince have inspired me to be the truest version of myself, and reminded me why I was inspired to write, to sing, to feel.

“I’ve been given so much freedom musically, artistically and creatively. No one has set any boundaries on me and it’s allowed me to be free and make Jess be the album I truly want it to be."

Accrington based iMEP, are specialists in “International Music Event Production”, and were recently announced as the new arena and front of shirt sponsors at Accrington Cricket Club.

Offering everything from lighting, sound, staging and special effects, to fully managed music and theatre event production, iMEP regularly work with stars around the world.

Murray Dawson, chair of #AmazingAccrington and Managing Director of Scott Dawson Advertising who brokered the sponsorship, said: “Wow, what an incredible honour it is going to be for #AmazingAccrington and Accrington Cricket Club to host such a star studded event.

“This is a real coup for us with Accrington Cricket Club’s fabulous location and we can’t thank Eddy and the iMEP team enough for all their hard work in making this happen.”
