Calvin Harris To Play Clyde 1 Live

102.5 Clyde 1, the number 1 radio station for Glasgow and the West is pleased to announce the final 3 acts performing at this years ‘Clyde 1 Live’.

Joining an already stellar line up, the hottest act on the planet ‘Calvin Harris’ will jointly headline the show, making an appearance in his homeland; exclusively for Clyde 1.

World domination, chart topping collaborations, and headlining festivals has been the order of the day in recent months for Calvin Harris. On December 13th, his now infamous ‘Live DJ set’ is coming to Clyde 1 Live, and is sure to blow the roof off, as it has at the `King Tuts' tent at T In The Park for the past 2 years.

Also joining the bill is number one selling artist ‘Labrinth’. With over 2 million record sales under his belt and his collaboration with Emile Sande making serious waves since being performed live on last weeks X-Factor, Labrinth will be another eagerly anticipated performance on the night.

Next up is the wonderful ‘Amelia Lily’. A relative newcomer to the scene but making her presence felt with recent hit ‘You Bring Me Joy’ that stormed to the number 2 spot in the UK charts in September of this year.

Clyde 1 Live takes place on the 13th of December at the SECC, Glasgow. The full line up will be; Calvin Harris, JLS, Leona Lewis, Labrinth, McFly, Lawson & Amelia Lily.

Calvin Harris
Calvin Harris is one of the hottest DJs and hitmakers in the world right now. With a #1 smash worldwide with Rihanna on ‘We Found Love’, three #2 singles; ‘Bounce’ feat. Kelis, ‘Feel So Close’ and ‘Let’s Go’ feat. Ne-Yo, Calvin’s new album released this summer promises to be a huge success. Calvin has had a crazy few years with eight Top 10 singles in his career, including three #1 singles and over 500,000 albums sold in the UK. He is also continuing his US takeover with his single ‘Feel So Close’ now platinum selling after reaching over 1 million downloads. He has been touring the world DJing over the last year everywhere from Las Vegas to New York to Mexico along with headline festival appearances at the likes of T in the Park and Creamfields and is set to embark on a busy summer of appearances in 2012.

Labrinth
Ladies and gentleman, meet the multi-talented Labrinth.  If you’re not instantly familiar with the name, you'll almost certainly recognise his massive 2011 hit 'Earthquake' – which has hit 40 million views on YouTube and catapulted him into the consciousness of the UK pop market.  “Labrinth, come in” – yeah, that’s the one! Currently writing his second album, the 23 year old rapper who is signed to Simon Cowell's label, is on the verge of releasing some exciting new material very soon. Critics and music fans alike are anticipating great things from his extraordinary talent.
With an effervescent stage show and a sense of style that sets him apart from all the other Electro rap contenders, Clyde 1 LIVE anticipates an amazing spectacle.

Amelia Lily
Saying that your life is like a rollercoaster might be an overused comparison, but when it comes to 17 year old, Amelia Lily, this is exactly what the last 12 months have been.  After studying for her GCSE’s she found herself in the middle of the X factor circus and thrust onto the biggest show on TV. However, to be booted off, to then be invited back, and then to finish a respectable 3rd, defying all the odds, is just crazy!  Since the mass hysteria of the X factor she has gone away and got herself a record deal and released the brilliant, number 2 single ‘You bring me Joy’  - which she describes as ‘a banger of a tune’.  Now  working with the writers behind some of Girls Aloud’ s biggest hits means we can be sure that her early success is not a one off!
