Sting and Shaggy plan to launch their music festival “One Fine Day” in Philadelphia on September 9.
The Grammy award winners and regular collaborators have announced that they are organizing the inaugural music festival in collaboration with the Cherrytree Music Company and Live Nation.
Sting and Shaggy will curate and co-headline the “One Fine Day” festival, a full day of eclectic music featuring a diverse artist lineup across two stages at The Mann in Fairmount Park.
Headlining the main stage at TD Pavilion, Sting and Shaggy will perform their biggest hits together, trading off and collaborating on “Every Breath You Take,” “Englishman In New York,” “Message In A Bottle,” “It Wasn’t Me,” “Boombastic,” “Angel” and more.
“I love how Shaggy and I effortlessly push each other to the creative edges,” says Sting. “After having made the 44/876 album together and recording an album of Frank Sinatra covers in a reggae style, a day of hits and musical adventures in one of our favorite cities seemed like the next illogical step.”
“Sting is a catalyst for musical curiosity,” adds Shaggy. “When we collaborate, we combine our musical tastes, individual cultures and a sense of wonder. We wanted to invite some of our favorite musicians to gather in real time and share that very vibe at ‘One Fine Day.'”
Headlining the Skyline Stage at the Mann for “One Fine Day” will be two-time Grammy Award-winning Thundercat.
Koffee, Tank and the Bangas, Philadelphia’s own G. Love & Special Sauce, Kes, Flor de Toloache, and French/Italian sensation Giordana Angi are among the additional musical performers.
Tickets will be available beginning with an artist presale starting on Tuesday, May 16 at 10 AM EST until Thursday, May 18 at 10 PM EST. Additional presales will run throughout the week ahead of the general on sale beginning on Friday, May 19 at 10 AM EST at ticketmaster.com.
