Swindon Town Football Club has confirmed the County Ground will host a music festival for the first time in 11 years next May.

And a former Radio 1 DJ and I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star is the first confirmed act on the line-up.

Chris Moyles will kick-off two days of entertainment at the County Ground with his 90s Hangover show on Friday, May 25, promising 'some of the biggest DJs and live artists' from the era.

Famous faces will take to the stage the following day as part of the Could Be Real Tribute Festival.

The County Ground last staged The Big Summer Session' in 2013, which saw Peter Andre headline the event. 

A spokesperson for Swindon Town FC said: "Swindon Town is now delighted to announce that we will be hosting two events on Saturday and Sunday of May 2024, May Bank Holiday weekend.

"Our weekend event will begin on May 25 with, Chris Moyles presenting '90s Hangover' which will see the former Radio 1 DJ, begin his Euros Special tour ahead of the UEFA Euro 2024 competition.

The news follows the club's announcement in September that it was planning to bring concerts back to the County Ground, where members of the public were also asked to give their feedback on who they would like to see perform at SN1. 

The survey was filled out at 3,500 with the club saying it would need some time to go through the answers and come up with the next plans. 

Swindon Town chief commercial officer James Watts commented on the upcoming event: "We are delighted to announce this huge event for the people of Wiltshire. 

"This shows the capabilities of the County Ground in being more than just a football stadium and we look forward to a great event next May."

CEO Anthony Hall added: "We are delighted to announce that the County Ground will hold its first concert in 11 years and we look forward to welcoming as many people as possible to the two-day event being held over the May Bank Holiday weekend with a great line up of artists.

"We look forward to working with everyone and holding an event that we hope will become part of our diaries year after year.

"This also gives the whole community a great way to enjoy the County Ground not only through football but through music as we continue our drive to engage all."

The club says the event will be regulated by Swindon Borough Council and an application has been made.
