Ipswich Town FC have announced a star-studded two day music extravaganza is coming to Portman Road this summer.

IP1 Live will see four world famous acts grace the stage on Friday, July 6, and Saturday, July 7.

The Friday will take you back to the 1980s with two massive acts from the era.

R&B and Soul singer Alexander O’Neal, whose 40 year career has seen him earn 14 UK top 40 hits, headlines the day with US hip-hop Grammy Hall of Famers The Sugarhill Gang and the Furious Five, best known for their smash hit Rappers Delight, in support.

The Saturday will see You Me at Six headline.

The band achieved success with their debut album Take off Your Colours and have since released a further six albums.

Their appearance at IP1 Live is included as one of the dates on their UK tour.
