T4 On The Beach have announced the first acts that will be performing at the event: Professor Green; LABRINTH; DAPPY; Cover Drive; Rizzle Kicks and Little Mix. 20 more acts are expected to be announced over the next few weeks.
T4 presenter Jameela Jamil said about the festival: 'To say I'm excited about T4 On The Beach's 10th birthday would be a massive understatement, I literally can't wait for the summer! It's great to see the Little Mix ladies on the line-up and T4 Star of 2011, Labrinth, along with some real T4 veterans like Dappy and Pro Green. There are over 20 more artists still to be added to the line-up over the coming months and a little T4 birdie has told me we're going to be joined by some incredible acts at Weston-super-Mare this year. Make sure you're following us on T4witter where we'll be announcing the acts first!'
Little Mix made history at the end of 2011 when they became the first group to win The X Factor. They are set to release their debut album, with songs written by X Factor judge Gary Barlow and Biff Stannard (Kylie Minogue; One Direction).
T4 on the Beach will also be celebrating their 10th anniversary; over the years they've had the likes of Lily Allen; McFly and Dizzee Rascal performing on stage. From 2005, the event has been held on the beach at Weston Super Mare and this year will be no different. It will take place on July 9th and will be broadcast on Channel 4. Tickets are available from the festival's website.
