After a hiatus of nearly two years GRAMMY and BRIT Award-nominated Corinne Bailey Rae released second album The Sea in January and will take to the Hard Rock Calling stage for her first festival performance this year.
“I’m so excited to be playing with Stevie! I have been lucky enough to watch him play from the side of the stage before and it was amazing. His songs and his voice are so beautiful, it's a real honor to be chosen to support him,” said Corinne Bailey Rae.
Three days of music, HRC will also feature performances by The Hives, The Gaslight Anthem, Ben Harper and Relentless7 and Wolfmother, with additional top acts to be announced.
