BACK for a sixth year, Fusion 2018 returns with a line-up full of chart toppers headlined by David Guetta and Shawn Mendes.

Returning to Otterspool Promenade and teaming up with Capital Liverpool, music fans across the region will be heading to Liverpool to see some of the biggest names in music on September 1 and 2.

The line up was revealed on Monday morning’s Captial Breakfast show. Artists such as Clean Bandit, Years & Years, Jess Glynne, Zara Larsson and James Arthur will be joining the headliners to bring their sound to the banks of the River Mersey.

As one of the world’s most successful DJs Saturday’s headliner David Guetta has collaborated with international stars such as Rihanna, Usher, Kelly Rowland and Nicki Minaj to produce some of the greatest dance hits of all time.

The French DJ has sold eight million singles, 1.3 million albums and secured six official number one singles.

Warming up Saturday’s stage will be Clean Bandit, singer-songwriter Jess Glynne, Sigala, MNEK and Disciples.

Sunday’s headliner Canadian singer Shawn Mendes has released hits such as Mercy, Treat You Better, There’s Nothing Holdin’ You Back and the number one single Stitches.

After opening for Taylor Swift’s ‘The 1989 World Tour’ in 2015, Shawn has bagged multiple awards and last year sold out his first world tour in just minutes – at the age of 18.

Shawn said: “I’m so excited to be headlining Fusion this year.

“So many awesome musicians have played the festival in the past and I’ve heard it’s incredible.

“Can’t wait to see you all!”

Joining him on Sunday will be Years & Years, Swedish pop powerhouse Zara Larsson, X Factor stars James Arthur, Louisa Johnson and BRIT nominated DJ and producer Jax Jones.

Event director of Fusion Festival Damien Sanders said: “Every year Fusion grows and the line up is filled with more superstars.

"From Ed Sheeran to Little Mix and Take That to Ne-Yo, we never disappoint, and Fusion 2018 will once again impress the crowds with the biggest acts of the year playing including David Guetta and Shawn Mendes.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Capital Liverpool once more and can’t wait to round off the summer with the biggest pop music event of the year.”
