With two top 10 albums, the rapper, songwriter and television personality is also the co-host of Channel 5’s Lip Sync Battle UK and has fronted numerous documentaries for BBC about issues affecting modern Britain. He’s currently working on new music for 2018.

Professor Green said: “I’m so excited to be up in Blackpool for this year’s Slimefest and can’t think of a better way to enjoy music than with lots and lots of slime.”

Deputy leader of Blackpool Council, Cllr Gillian Campbell added: “We are delighted to be able to announce Professor Green as the headline artist for Saturday’s Slimefest.”

Two Slimefest shows take place each day - but all tickets have now sold out.
