Convention 2015 Line Up Revealed

Convention 2015  Line Up Revealed

Five DJs from Radio 1 will be entertaining thousands of Young Farmers this April in Torquay and two of them are back by popular demand!

Members ranked Chris Stark and Aled Haydn Jones as two of the best DJs at last year’s Convention in Blackpool and now they have been asked to come back and do it all again in Torquay!

New faces to the Young Farmers’ bash include Huw Stephens, who has a Wednesday night slot on Radio 1 and is also a regular face on the BBC in Wales, Alice Levine who is a radio and TV presenter and recently covered The Brit Awards for Radio 1, and Dev Griffin who presents the weekend breakfast show on Radio 1.  

To add to the excitement on Sunday night when Chris Stark and Dev Griffin will be on stage – Convention-goers can also enjoy a Foam Party. This bubbly surprise will be a frothy extra to the entertainment on stage, which also includes a performance from The RPJ Band.

Other bands performing during the weekend are Hype Deluxe and the MIB Band – all top outfits that are used to playing large crowds.  

The exciting line up was announced by the Events and Marketing Steering Group during the Council weekend. One of the Steering Group’s responsibilities is to suggest acts for the annual event and help guide ideas for activities for members during the weekend.
