Vodafone TBA – McFly, N.E.R.D. and Streets play Brighton Beach

 
By on Monday, 7th July 2008 at 5:05 pm
 

McFlyFollowing on from Razorlight, Kanye West and The Killers and a tonne of other A-list stars, Vodafone have announced the lineup for their August “TBA” secret gig.

N.E.R.D., The Streets and McFly will all play Brighton Beach on Sunday 10th August.

The rather mixed lineup will follow in the footsteps of Razorlight who played Brighton Beach in summer 2006.

Tickets are available only to Vodafone customers by texting ACTS to 61500. Winners will receive tickets for themselves and two friends and those not lucky enough to attend will be able to watch the gig on T4, hosted by the insufferable Dave Berry.

Vodafone have made the decision this year to move away from the one-artist regular gigs that they’ve had in previous years, instead choosing to make a “mini festival”. Whether this works out we’ll soon see!

Full info is available from here.
