Indie pop favourite Tom Grennan has become the latest artists confirmed for next year’s Sounds of the City festival at Castlefield Bowl, set to play the large outdoor space on 7 July 2024.

The Bedford-born singer-songwriter has come along from playing small venues across the country and featuring on the FIFA soundtrack way back in 2017 and is now a chart-topping musician with two number-one albums to his name.

With that in mind, following his first successful run of headline UK arena shows back in March — which included a sold-out crowd at the AO here in Manchester — Grennan is now set to play the mighty Castlefield Bowl for the very first time as part of Sound of the City 2024.

Joining the likes of Hacienda Classical, made up of legendary Manc DJs Graeme Park, Mike Pickering and the Manchester Camerata, as well as electronic duo Jungle, the 28-year-old is just the third act to be confirmed for next year’s already impressive festival lineup.

This will be Tom Grennan’s first visit to Castlefield Bowl.

Playing an identical show for Leeds’ parallel festival in Millenium Square on Saturday, 6 July, the two dates follow the announcement of his biggest-ever UK headline show to date, set to take
place at London’s Gunnersbury Park on Saturday, 10 August 2024. He’s even got Blossoms supporting.


Now a BRIT and Ivor Novello-nominated artist, not to mention a current number-one holder with his recently released third studio album, What Ifs & Maybes, it’s safe to say he’s flying high at the minute.

What better way to toast his success than with another sell-out Manc show — at the one and only Castlefield Bowl no less?
