WATCH: Chart-topping popstar to play Cornwall

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 4:42pm 12th April 2018.

A chart-topping popstar is set to take the stage at one of Cornwall's biggest festivals this summer.

Kelis Rogers, probably best known for her hit single 'Milkshake', will perform at Leopallooza near Bude on July 28th.

And she will be joined by a string of established musicians, up-and coming artists and side-splitting comedians.

Remember this? A little bit of a racy video - we don't think she'll be shaking about quite like this in the Cornish weather!


Born and raised in Harlem, New York, Kelis shot to fame in 2003.

Having released six albums, won Brit, Q, and NME Awards, and nominated for two Grammy Awards, the US music sensation has toured every corner of the world performing tracks that include 'Trick Me' and 'Millionaire'.

First catching the public attention with Ol' Dirty Bastard's hit 'Got Your Money' and having collaborated with the likes of Pharrell, Busta Rhymes, Calvin Harris and Andre 3000, she is expected to share a slice of her new album 'Food' with Leopallooza partygoers.

Event co-founder Sam Dunnett said: "Kelis is definitely up there with the biggest names we've hosted here at Leopallooza.

"She has millions and millions of fans worldwide, and we're really excited to have this US superstar come to Cornwall and get the Saturday night festival crowd singing along with some of those big hits that I think we all know. Yeah, we're buzzing!

"We can't wait."

Billing itself as 'The Greatest House Party… in a field', Leopallooza will pop up on Friday 27th - Sunday 29th July 2018 for three days of music, comedy, theatre, street food, beer and cider.

And for this year, organisers say there will be an extended programme of comedy, storytelling and even the introduction of a tiny nightclub too.

And Kelis will be performing alongside Alabama's six-piece soul band St Paul and the Broken Bones, who will headline festival proceedings on Sunday 29th July.

Other acts taking centre stage include Chelmsford's Jordan Cardy AKA Rat Boy, Bedford born singer-songwriter Tom Grennan, Bristol formed Idles, The Go! Team and Oh My God! It's The Church.

Tickets for Leopallooza 2018 are on sale here.
