Lucy Spraggan to kick off New Mills Festival

Sheffield-based Lucy Spraggan will be setting this year’s New Mills Festival off with what is sure to be another sell-out gig when she takes to the stage, supported by energetic popsters Heir.

Lucy appeared on the X Factor in 2012, and since then her audition video has been viewed 35 million times on YouTube.

She was also the most Googled musician of 2012, after she came off the show and immediately signed to Columbia Records.

With her debut album – Join the Club – a top-ten success, Lucy has enjoyed sell-out tours ever since.

Her latest record We Are was released on her own label, CTRL Records.

The album just missed out on a top twenty position.

The festival gig is at New Mills Art Theatre on September 10. For more information email or to book online visit
