It’s part of this year’s Margate Summer Series, which has already seen the likes of Bryan AdamsLimp BizkitMadness and Simple Minds perform at the open-air venue.

Aston Merrygold, Oritsé Williams, Marvin Humes and JB Gill – who now lives on a farm in Sevenoaks – won two BRIT Awards and achieved five No. 1 singles after finishing as runners-up to Alexandra Burke on the ITV singing show.

They remained a fixture of the UK charts until they announced their split in 2013.

In 2020, the four-piece revealed that they would be reuniting for a new album, entitled 2.0, and a tour, which was postponed until October 2021.

The group will perform their latest show with “fresh elements” at Dreamland on Saturday, July 6 with support from Tinchy Stryder. You can book tickets here.

 

Kicking off the weekend ahead of the boyband’s return to Kent is singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti.

The acoustic performer is known for songs such as Soldiers Eyes, Candlelight and When We Were Lovers.

His latest album, Miss Italia, features a track with Australian artist Natalie Imbruglia and his previous two albums – Singing to Strangers and Europiana – both reached the top of the UK Albums Chart.

He will be playing his headline set on the Scenic Stage on Friday, July 5. Tickets are available here.
