A huge line up epic proportions has been announced for NASS festival, including two massive headline acts. Headie One and Kano will join The Streets to headline NASS 2021, along with over 90 unmissable artists who have also been added to the line-up.

NASS, the UK’s biggest celebration of music, street art, skate and BMX returns to the Bath and West Showground from 8-11 July 2021 with, quite possibly, it’s best line-up ever. NASS festival is sold out and today announces that it is opening peer-to-peer resale officially via trusted reselling site, Tixel. Find out more at www.nassfestival.com

Headie One has firmly cemented himself as the breakout British rap star of 2020. His debut album Edna stormed to the top of the charts in October, and featured musical heavyweights AJ Tracey, Drake, Stormzy, Future, Skepta, Aitch, Mahalia plus many more. With massive hit singles including ‘Ain’t It Different’ and ‘Princess Cuts’, it’s no surprise his streaming figures are way into the hundreds of millions. The highest-charting drill rapper ever, following the release of ‘18Hunna’ with Dave, Headie One will be at NASS festival this summer ready to claim headliner status on Friday night.

Kano is set to make his hotly-anticipated return to NASS festival this year, as Sunday night’s headliner. Fans can expect a masterclass, no less, in the very best of homegrown British grime, as Kano comes armed with his biggest hits including  ‘3 Wheel-ups’, ‘GarageSkankFREESTYLE’ and ‘P’s and Q’s’. A man who needs no introduction and a pioneer of grime in his own right, Kano will deliver a headline set of electrifying proportions which is not to be missed.

They join Saturday’s headline act, The Streets. Hailing from Birmingham, Mike Skinner is a producer, rapper, DJ, singer, writer and actor. The Streets gained widespread critical acclaim in 2002 with debut album Original Pirate Material, fast-becoming British rap royalty who notably changed the face of UK rap music for generations to come. With an arsenal of bangers including ‘Fit But You Know It’, ‘Blinded By The Lights’ and ‘Has It Come To This’, The Streets will bring an unforgettable headline set on Saturday night at NASS 2021.

Over 90 more artists have been revealed today for NASS festival 2021. Becky Hill has seen huge success with her biggest hits including ‘Afterglow’, ‘Back & Forth’, ‘Wish You Well’ and ‘Lose Control’. ‘Last Time’, the latest single, taken from Becky’s forthcoming debut album is out now. Little Simz joins the NASS festival line-up, with new music including her quarantine-produced ‘Drop 6’ EP. Her third studio album ‘Grey Area’ cemented Little Simz as one of the UK’s most exciting rappers and earned her Mercury nomination.  There’ll be no shortage of high-octane hits when Wilkinson hits the stage at NASS this summer. Expect to hear ‘Afterglow’, ‘All For You’ and ‘Illuminate’ and a sound which perfectly blends drum’n’bass, jungle, dance and dubstep.

Hot off the heels of his latest studio album Stay Sane, Camden’s Ocean Wisdom is announced for NASS 2021, along with one of British music’s most talented stars RAYE whose latest single BED, with Joel Corry and David Guetta, is one of this year’s catchiest dance hits. Ella Eyre and Grime MC FM have also been added to the line-up, as has BBC’s Sound of 2021, Pa Salieu.

Even more big-hitters include one of the UK’s hottest R&B stars Ray Blk, BRIT Award nominee DJ Nathan Dawe, electro-duo favourite Solardo and house DJ and producer Rebuke. The king of BBC Radio 1 Dance anthems Danny Howard will be heading to NASS, as well as Prospa, Sam Divine and Greentea Peng. Plus, Gentleman’s Dub Club, The Four Owls, House of Pharaohs and Bru C. And there’s even more to be announced very soon!

Beyond the music, NASS will welcome the biggest names in skate and BMX as they battle it out with competitions taking place across the four days. There’ll be some of the most talented UK street artists displaying their work especially for NASS festivalgoers, including unique pieces and live art created for the festival itself.

NASS has also announced today that Tixel will operate as the official peer-to-peer resale site for this year’s festival tickets. NASS reminds fans not to buy tickets from unofficial sources, including friends and people they meet via social media as these tickets will not be valid and they won’t be able to get into the festival. The only official source to buy resale tickets from is Tixel.
