Professor Green To Make Festival Comeback at Bournemouth 7s 2019

Award winning British rapper Professor Green has been confirmed to be performing live at Bournemouth 7s festival, this late May Bank Holiday!

Renowned for chart hits such as ‘Read All About It’ and ‘I Need You Tonight’ the musician will bring an eclectic mix of hip hop, grime and electronica to the festival, which is held on the beautiful south coast.

Professor Green, real name Stephen Manderson, has collaborated with an array of other artists including Emeli Sandé, Lily Allen, Rag’n’Bone Man, and last year’s Bournemouth 7s Festival headliner, Example.

Having recently recovered from a serious neck injury, Manderson also made headlines last year when he opposed Bournemouth’s ‘anti-homeless’ benches which were installed to deter people from sleeping on them.

Bournemouth 7s Festival, known as the “Sporting Glastonbury”, has grown massively in popularity among sport lovers and attracts 30,000 revellers every year to play and watch sport by day, and party by night.

Festival CEO, Roger Woodall said: “Bournemouth 7s has attracted players and festival-lovers from across the UK for many years, and it’s great that we can reward these loyal fans with a quality act such as Professor Green”

“The atmosphere at our festival is unique, and finding the right acts for our crowd is a challenge that we relish in. Pro Green fits the bill perfectly, and I can’t wait to see him perform!”

Bournemouth 7s has become the world’s largest sport and music festival since it’s inception in 2008. By day teams compete in a range of elite and social sports tournaments across the 65-acre Festival site, and by night, the Festival offers a variety of vibrant themed Festival arenas.

England Rugby ace and talented DJ, James Haskell, was also recently confirmed to perform at the festival, as a headliner for an all new VIP area.
