The worst kept secret on the Belfast music scene was confirmed this morning (Friday 4 March), when it was officially announced that Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline the Tennent’s Vital festival on Thursday 25 August.
Special guests will be Fall Out Boy, with other support acts to be announced.
Brian Beattie, Marketing Director for Tennent’s NI, said:
“It’s fantastic to be announcing we’ve secured the Chili Peppers to headline Tennent’s Vital 2016 – they’re undoubtedly one of the biggest bands in the world with a great reputation for their amazing live shows so we’re expecting big things! Fall Out Boy is a fabulous addition to the bill and we’re well into negotiations to secure still more big names to make this an amazing summer of music in Belfast.”
