UB40 Complete Forest Live Line Up

UB40 featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey have been announced as the third and final headline act appearing at Sherwood Pines Forest Park this summer. The announcement means that the full line up for Forest Live 2018 is now complete.

The Birmingham reggae legends join the likes of Kasabian and The Script as headliners at the shows which are held annually by the Forestry Commission and provide some of the most scenic settings for gigs possible. The full set of headliners also features Gary Barlow, Paloma Faith and Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott.

This year’s sites include forests in Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire and Yorkshire as well as others, with artists playing multiple sites across the course of several weekends in June, with the exception of UB40 who are only playing Notts.

This unique set of live shows take place in June, and this year will cover seven sites across the country, covering a real mixture of genre as this concept continues to expand. In previous years the likes of Paul Weller, Elbow and Rick Astley have all taken to the stage across some of these sites, but this year the magnitude of artists who have been to the top of their scene is more impressive.

All profits go to the maintenance of British Forests.

Tickets are available Here, more info on the site locations and line ups are below.
