Henley Festival has revealed details of its much anticipated 2018 line-up. This year festival-goers will be able to enjoy performances from the likes Grace Jones, Nile Rogers & Chic, Rita Ora and the English National Opera.

Additionally, the not-for-profit festival has this year partnered with two charities, Teenage Wilderness Trust and The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust.

Henley Festival is the UK’s only black-tie boutique festival and glamour personified, offering Michelin starred food, award winning comedians, Turner Prize nominated artists and the biggest names in popular, world, jazz and classical music. Many festival goers arrive by boat, and the green lawns of the festival are transformed into a Great Gatsby vision, as black tie clad revellers spill across the festival site, champagne in hand, while fireworks explode overhead.

Henley Festival’s 2018 line-up so far is below:
