THE Gibraltar Music Festival has announced that it is adding a comedy stage for the fifth annual festival with Paul Foot, Simon Evans, Nathan Caton, Dana Alexander, Sully O’Sullivan, Matt Green and MC-Geoff Whiting confirmed to perform.
The festival has a history of bringing the biggest and best live acts from around the globe to perform in Victoria Stadium. 2016 sees three new stages of comedy, dance and acoustic added to the programme providing one of the most varied and high calibre festival experiences across the summer season perfect for the whole family.
Performing at this year’s Gibraltar Music Festival will be Ne-Yo, Stereophonics, Jess Glynne, All Saints, KT Tunstall, Foxes and many more. Taking place on September 3 and 4, the event ends the summer on a high. Tickets are available at £94 (€112) for the weekend with free tickets for children under 12.
After appearing on BBC’s Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Paul Foot has made a name for himself as being one of the most out-there comedians. Foot is known for his musings, rants, ‘disturbances’ and apparent aversion to pop culture and has picked up acclaim across National newspapers.
Simon Evans is an established act on the UK comedy circuit who is the writer of choice for Dara O Briain, Sean Lock, Jimmy Carr, Marcus Brigstocke and Lee Mack among others. He is a familiar voice on BBC Radio 4 as a regular on The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth and Armando Iannucci’s Charm Offensive.
Regarded as one of the best young comics in the UK, Nathan Caton’s award winning combination of personal and topical anecdotes has led to appearances on BBC2’s Mock the Week, BBC3’s Russell Howard’s Good News, BBC Radio 4’s Now Show, News Quiz and his BBC Radio 4 sitcom Can’t Tell Nathan Caton Nothing.
