Clean Bandit will be playing at Thetford Forest on Sunday, July 2, as part of Forest Live, the summer concert series with the Forestry Commission.

Formed in Cambridge in 2008, Clean Bandit’s debut album New Eyes included Extraordinary (feat. Sharna Bass) and the No 1 smash hit Rather Be (feat. Jess Glynne) a track that took the band into the international mainstream and gave them industry recognition with a Grammy Award for Best Dance recording.

Following on from this success, 2016 saw the release of two massive hit singles, Tears (feat. Louisa Johnson) and Rockabye (feat. Sean Paul & Anne-Marie). The latter’s popularity is reflected in playlist dominance and the formidable status of being No. 1 on the UK official singles chart for nine consecutive weeks, the longest reign by a UK artist since 1994.

It has been No. 1 in thirty countries around the world and the song’s achievement has been cemented with Brit Award nominations for British Single and British Artist Video.

Tickets are on sale from 9am this Friday, February 17, at £33 (plus £3.80 booking fee) available from the Forestry Commission box office tel 03000 680400, or buy online at www.forestry.gov.uk/music
