The Charlatans are set to headline the Godiva Festival’s Saturday Main Stage, with support from Mystery Jets. The festival, now in its 18th year, runs from 1-3 July in the War Memorial Park.

The Charlatans formed in 1989 and have enjoyed Top 40 chart success with all twelve of their studio albums, with three reaching the top of the album chart. The band’s career has also seen four top 10 hit singles: ‘One to Another’, ‘North Country Boy’, ‘How High’ and ‘The Only One I Know”. Their latest album release, ‘Modern Nature’. was critically acclaimed as one of their best ever and attracted a whole new fan base.

Lead singer Tim Burgess said: “We’re really looking forward to playing Godiva Festival. Coventry has always been a great place to play for us – I was listening to ‘Lady Godiva’s Operation’ by the Velvet Underground when we were asked to play. It was a sign that it’s going to be a good night.”

Mystery Jets is an indie-rock band from Twickenham, London, perhaps best known for songs ‘Young Love’ and ‘Two Doors Down’. The group has released six studio albums, with their latest, ‘Curve of the Earth’, released during January 2016.
