One of Britain’s best live bands - Stereophonics - will be performing as part of this summer’s Forest Live concert series at Thetford Forest, in Suffolk.

Since their Best Newcomer Brit Award in 1998 in acknowledgment of their debut album, Word Gets Around, Stereophonics went on to become arguably the UK's most popular rock band of the new millennium. Their ascendancy was driven by a succession of top ten hits including The Bartender and the Thief, Just Looking, Mr Writer, Have a Nice Day and Dakota and Number One albums Performance and Cocktails, Just Enough Education to Perform, You Gotta Go There To Come Back, and Language. Sex. Violence. Other?

Stereophonics continued their success with further gold and platinum records and released their 10th studio album, Scream Above The Sounds in 2017. Throughout their career they have played at some of the largest venues to fans across the globe, establishing a reputation as one of the best live rock bands around. Stereophonics Forest Live performances will feature material from across their extensive back catalogue.
