Kaiser Chiefs to headline Saturday night at Armed Forces Day National Event!

Kaiser Chiefs

It's been hard to keep the secret but now we're delighted to be telling everyone that our Saturday night headline act is Kaiser Chiefs

Baroness Scott of Bybrook OBE, leader of Wiltshire Council

Here it is! The headliners of the Saturday at Armed Forces Day National Event in Salisbury are revealed today as Kaiser Chiefs.

The indie rock band, who release their seventh album Duck on 26 July, will headline the main stage at Hudson's Field as the country marks Armed Forces Day nationally. Shine for Salisbury winners The Treblemakers will get the party started with The Upbeat Beatles before the renowned Leeds band take to the stage at around 9pm. The evening's live music is sponsored by platinum sponsor Lovell.

The Friday night will open with an evening dedicated to our Armed Forces, with a barbecue for them and their families along with entertainment. The entertainment will be open to all and will see Shine for Salisbury winners Duck n Cuvver get the evening going before headliners The Feeling take to the stage.

Internationally renowned band Björn Again will bring the three-day spectacular to a close on performing many of ABBA's greatest hits after a rousing performance by the third Shine for Salisbury winners, Salisbury Rock Choir.

Baroness Scott of Bybrook OBE, leader of Wiltshire Council, said: "It's been hard to keep the secret but now we're delighted to be telling everyone that our Saturday night headline act is Kaiser Chiefs. It's a fantastic line-up over the three nights with Kaiser Chiefs, The Feeling and Björn Again, we're proud to be putting on three evenings of great live music with a really varied line-up that will appeal to everyone."

Free tickets for the three days are available online but are going fast. You can book yours by visiting www.wiltshire.gov.uk/salisbury-afd.

The event is supported by platinum sponsors KBR Aspire Defence and Lovell and the official main charity partner SSAFA. Armed Forces Day is an opportunity to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community from current serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets. Armed Forces Day nationally takes place on the last Saturday in June, this year it is on 29 June with the national event being held in Salisbury. Celebrations begin on Monday 24 June when the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and landmarks across the country. Showing support for the Armed Forces provides a much-valued morale boost for troops and their families.
