Chart-topper DJ Fresh, Hannah Wants, Kwabs and Raleigh Ritchie head up our third wave of announcements for No Tomorrow Festival 2015 at Nottingham’s Wollaton Park on the 6th and 7th June. The No Tomorrow party will be reaching new heights this year with Kidnap Kid, Applebottom, Shelter Point and many more!
BRIT Award nominee DJ Fresh has scored multiple number 1s on both the UK singles and UK Dance charts; this summer the drum ‘n’ bass maestro brings his hits to Wollaton Park much to the delight of eager No Tomorrow festival-goers. DJ Fresh has collaborated with artists including Diplo, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora, Dizzee Rascal, Ella Eyre and more.
Also joining the bill is Kwabs, an artist who featured in the BBC Sound of 2015 list and boasts 40 million YouTube views for his track ‘Walk’. Swiftly signed to Atlantic Records, Kwabs is steadily making waves with his soulful take on R&B. The eagle-eyed amongst us may spot that No Tomorrow’s next addition, Raleigh Ritchie, has also graced screens as Grey Worm in Game of Thrones. In his musical guise Ritchie also adds a spin to R&B adding in tinges of rap that sees him touted as a one to watch this year.
Synths, beats and breaks come hard and heavy across the latest additions to No Tomorrow. Dubbed ‘the undisputed queen of 2014’ by Mixmag, Hannah Wants shows no signs of slowing down in 2015. Wants is part of BBC Radio 1’s Residency and her bass heavy house is steadily tearing up dance floors across Europe, soon to include No Tomorrow. Local duo Shelter Point are also now confirmed and will offer up a downbeat and brooding take on all things electronic.
Black Butter Records have already contributed several acts to the No Tomorrow bill, now the festival welcomes yet more from the label in the form of energetic house whizz, Kidnap Kid and Bristolian rising star of the UK bass scene, Woz. Young DJ, Applebottom, aka Joe Arthur, may only have broken through two years ago but nationwide sell out shows are already a common sign in his touring schedule to which No Tomorrow has been added.
TCTS heads to No Tomorrow with glowing references; the DJ otherwise known as Sam O’Neil has seen support from heavyweights such as Annie Mac, MistaJam and more. Eclectic but anonymous duo 99 souls and local boy, dollop and Stealth resident D’lex are also on hand behind the festival’s decks. With a career spanning over 20 years DJ Zinc is a highly qualified addition to proceedings. Zinc’s pirate radio and DJ shows have seen the Londoner tackle drum ‘n’ bass, break, house and much more.
UK bass artist Shoot the Ghost, Nottingham’s boy/girl production duo Ursa Major and another Stealth regular, Strike, bolster what is fast becoming the dance and crossover line up of the summer. International flavours are to be brought to No Tomorrow by Toronto’s multi-skilled filmmaker, drum ‘n’ bass DJ and producer Rene LaVice. DJs from local club nights Caramello, Afrowax and Bakery are the last but no means least from this current announcement.
This third wave of artists sit alongside headliners including John Newman and Jessie Ware, James Bay, Bondax, DJ EZ, Milky Chance, Gorgon City, Nick Mulvey, and SOAK.

This performance will be the first time Newman has headlined a UK festival’s main stage.

Elsewhere we’re turning our attention to some of the most current and in-demand names attracting critical acclaim. Singer-songwriter James Bay features in the highest profile up-and-coming lists of the year including BBC Sound Of 2015 poll. Bay went on to win the BRITS Critics’ Choice award following in the footsteps of Adele and last year’s No Tomorrow headliner Sam Smith.

The Nottingham-based 21 year old recently made a big first impression by reaching number two in the UK Singles chart with his debut ‘Wish You Were Mine’.

Electronic duo Blonde have remixed Ne-Yo’s track ‘Coming With You’ and it’s sounding HUGE. Can’t wait to hear this live at No Tomorrow Festival!
At the end of last year, No Tomorrow headliner John Newman performed at the inaugural BBC Music Awards. Watch him perform track ‘Blame’ with Calvin Harris and get psyched for his set at No Tomorrow!
Nottingham’s own DJ / producer Philip George’s rise to success has been phenomenal, from studying at Confetti Studios and writing in his bedroom, George can now say he’s got a UK No.2 single under his belt. The Nottingham Post interviewed the 21 year old to hear his take on reaching the charts.
“I’ve been posting tracks on Soundcloud regularly,” he says of the music website where anyone can upload their own songs to be listened to for free.
“Out of nowhere Wish You Were Mine just started getting plays. People liked it and shared it among their friends on the internet. There was no big publicity machine behind it.”
“I had no idea it was going to be this big at all. It’s gone through the roof.”
Philip, who says his dream collaboration would be Sam Smith, will be playing No Tomorrow Festival 6-7 June 2015.
This year’s No Tomorrow headliner Jessie Ware recently played a sold-out hometown show at o2 Brixton Academy, where she wowed the audience with tracks from her debut record as well as newer songs from album ‘Tough Love’. London’s Evening Standard gave the show a 4* review stating, “In their punchy, powerful live guises, songs such as Wildest Moments and No to Love were winners. Now she just needs a BRIT to make this a truly heroic year.”
