AND MANY MORE ARTISTS TO BE ANNOUNCED
Kicking off strong, the festival has announced its headliners with none other than the legendary Tom Jones headlining Saturday night, and cultural superstar Grace Jones topping the bill on Sunday.
One of the most iconic voices to ever grace the music business, Tom Jones is an artist like no other, and looks set to set the stage alight on the first night of Hideaway 2020. Fresh from his current role as superstar coach on The Voice, fans old and new can expect a wealth of hits from his back catalogue, including ‘What’s New Pussycat?’, ‘Delilah’, ‘It’s Not Unusual’, ‘Sex Bomb’ and many many more. A true original, Tom Jones has one of the most celebrated careers in music, not to mention his unmistakable voice and cracking stage banter. Expect a suitably mammoth performance from the Welsh icon.
In what is set to be a rare opportunity to delve into the mind of one of the world’s true cultural superstars, Grace Jones’ set at Hideaway is destined to be a true landmark moment. Celebrating fashion, artistry and a sense of extravagance not seen in modern pop, her influence remains as powerful as ever, and is an immeasurable force of nature in modern culture. One of the first artists to vigorously morph and bend genres to her will, Jones’ landmark release ‘Slave To The Rhythm’ remains one of the most critically revered and beloved albums of all time – straddling concept, style and glamour into a mix that’s not been bettered to this day. Needless to say, Grace Jones’ headline set is set to be one that’ll be talked about for years to come.
