Former X Factor winner James Arthur has been announced as The Wyldes' latest headliner to join the festival line-up next year.

Off the back of a sell-out arena tour in 2023, James Arthur has just announced new tour dates for 2024, including a debut performance at The Wyldes in North Cornwall on Sunday, June 2024.

The Middlesbrough-born singer-songwriter James was catapulted to fame in 2012 when he won the popular singing talent contest the X Factor. Following this, James has had multiple chart-topping hits, including two number ones with ‘Impossible’ and ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’, and a number-one album with his 2016 release ‘Back from the Edge’.

With four studio albums under his belt and a fifth in the making, James has achieved record streaming numbers and numerous platinum records, as well as collaborating with some of the biggest names in pop including Anne-Marie, Rudimental, Sigala and Marshmello.

The making of his upcoming album has offered James the space to reflect on a decade-long career in the limelight and promises to ‘pack a punch’ of emotion for the dedicated crowds who sing along with him at every show.
