The 4Music winners and Brit Award nominees The Wanted will headline the show, with 2008 X Factor winner Alexandra Burke as their special guest. The concert means it'll be a poptastic weekend for Lake Meadows as Peter Andre will be performing there on Sunday, August 7.
The Wanted shot to fame last year when their debut single, All Time Low , hit the number one spot in the first week of release and then remained in the top 40 for 11 weeks. Their self-titled debut album, released last year, was also a hit and work is already under way on their follow-up album.
Alexandra Burke found fame after winning The X Factor in 2008 with her debut single, a cover of Leonard Cohen's Halleluja, selling more than one million copies in the UK and being nominated for a Brit Award. She's hit the number one spot four times so far and her debut album, Overcome, was also a chart-topper.
