This year’s Sunderland Airshow promises to deliver the best music programme in the event’s history as a further act is announced to perform on the stage at Cliffe Park.

Double Platinum album selling Sophie Ellis-Bextor, who had four top three singles including ‘ Murder on the Dancefloor,’ will now also take to the stage, performing in a brand new Saturday afternoon slot.

Only weeks after Indie chart favourites Scouting for Girls were confirmed as the headline act for the Friday evening launch event with DJ and television personality Pat Sharp also bringing his famous DJ set to the show, another famous name can be added to the programme.

Sunderland City Council Cabinet Member for Communities and Culture, Councillor John Kelly said: “This new Saturday afternoon musical slot on the stage at Cliffe Park, is another fantastic addition to this year’s Sunderland Airshow.

“Top class musical entertainment is just one of the many free activities on the event site, and I’m delighted to announce another star will be joining us with Sophie Ellis Bextor adding her name to the line-up”.

“We’ve got stars in the sky performing our flying displays, and music stars on the ground onstage at Cliffe Park as the backdrop to our fantastic free family event that will have something for everyone to enjoy.”

Visitors looking to upgrade their experience at Sunderland Airshow can purchase tickets for the Take Off Enclosure for all three days of the event.
