Bastille LIVE at Ludlow Castle

Globally renowned indie-pop superstars Bastille celebrate the 10th anniversary of their multi-platinum debut album ‘Bad Blood’ within the stunning surroundings of Ludlow Castle.

English indie outfit Bastille blend the perfect mix of 80’s synth pop and joyful indie choruses to create a catalogue of hits which have launched them into global success, leading the way with their number one, certified triple platinum selling debut album which features a host of huge singles including contagiously catchy ‘Pompeii’, the blissfully upbeat ‘Flaws’ and anthemic title track ‘Bad Blood’. ​

Following from its release in 2013, Bastille will be heading out to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of their smash debut album stopping off within the stunning grounds of magnificent Medieval Ludlow Castle.

Successfully emerging as one of the biggest indie acts across the last decade, Bastille’s crowd-pleasing, impressive collection spans across 4 studio albums with big-hitters ‘Happier’, ‘Good Grief’ and ‘Run Into Trouble’ promising to bring an unmissable and unforgettable show to Ludlow next summer. ​

Since launching to meteoritic success Bastille have firmly cemented themselves as a live force and one of the world’s most captivating live bands and a regular across arenas and festival performances worldwide, notably storming Boardmasters, Reading and Leeds, and headlining Kendal Calling earlier this year, solidifying themselves as fan and festival favourites globally. ​
