The Subways, who first performed at Godiva in 2016, will be back on Saturday. Formed in 2005, their explosive, explosive performances have earned them a reputation as one of the best bands to see live.
Caitlin McCarthy will perform on the main stage on Sunday. The 17-year-old singer-songwriter will be a familiar face to anyone who has followed the Coventry music scene closely in recent years, with performances at HMV Empire and The Arches already under his belt.
Councilor Abdul Salam Khan, Deputy Leader of Coventry City Council and Cabinet Member for Events, said: “We are delighted to be able to add these two great new acts to this year’s lineup. Our goal with Godiva has always been to have acts that have diverse musical styles that appeal to the whole family.
“With the addition of these two artists, I’m happy to say that this year’s lineup continues that trend. We remain mindful of the financial pressures many residents of our city face. prices, save money and get their tickets as soon as possible.
Godiva will follow in the footsteps of Radio 1’s Big Weekend which took over War Memorial Park over the weekend. Tens of thousands of music fans flocked through the doors to see performances by Ed Sheeran, Sam Fender, Tom Grennan and Calvin Harris.
