Twenty of the biggest pop acts in the world – including Wretch 32, Naughty Boy, Connor Maynard and Amelia Lily – joined forces for the first ever Fusion Festival, in support of The Prince’s Trust and in association with Capital FM.
Up to 40,000 music fans headed to Birmingham’s Cofton park for a huge weekend of pop at its very best. The weekend featured spectacular live performances, massive chart smash hits plus all the fun of the festival fair with a full fairground and many other interactive events.
£5 from each ticket sale was donated to The Prince’s Trust to help disadvantaged young people into work and training.
Jessie J announced at the festival that she is now an ambassador for The Prince’s Trust.
She said: "The Prince’s Trust is an incredible charity with a cause that is very close to my heart. The money raised by Fusion Festival 2013 will support its vital work with disadvantaged young people, helping them to get their lives back on track.
“More than a million young people here in the UK are not in work, education or training – that’s a very big crowd that deserves our support. I’m so proud to be a part of that here today.”
