ROBERT PLANT TO HEADLINE SECOND DAY OF THE BATH FESTIVAL FINALE WEEKEND
Almost 50 years after Led Zeppelin performed at Bath Blues Festival (1969) on Bath Recreation Ground, their former lead singer and lyricist and one of the greatest voices in rock and roll, Robert Plant, is set to return to the city for the 70th anniversary finale weekend of The Bath Festival with his latest project Robert Plant & the Sensational Spaceshifters.
The Bath Festival returns in 2018 as an extended 17 day multi-arts festival from 11 to 27 May, celebrating the city with music and literature at its heart, engaging with the wider community and bringing the streets of Bath to life.
In the crowd watching Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and others that day in 1969 was Michael Eavis, who was then inspired to start the Glastonbury Festival a year later. Singer, songwriter and musician, Robert Plant CBE, returns to Bath as he takes his new album ‘Carry Fire’ around the world on numerous sold out dates. He heads up the Sunday programme on the Rec on 27 May, following Tears For Fears and Alison Moyet who perform on the Saturday evening.
