Island Beats will run from Monday 6 July to Sunday 30 August. Confirmed headline artists include Professor Green, Rizzle Kicks, Conor Maynard, The Vamps and Ella Eyre.

Headline artists will be performing on Fridays and Saturdays over the course of the ticketed festival.

Guests can enjoy the theme park’s 30 rides ahead of the headline artists’ performances in the evening. Ride time has been extended until 10pm so adrenaline junkies can use the roller-coasters throughout the evening. 

During the day, emerging artists will be performing at the resort, such as Only The Young, Canary Swing, Calvin Goldspink and Chasing Midnight. More acts will be announced over the coming weeks.

British band The Vamps said: "We are looking forward to jumping on a few rides and performing on stage at Thorpe Park Resort this summer – It will be a complete change of scenery in comparison to our normal arena gigs."
