Your 2024 Line Up Is Here

Colour Clash, Gwent’s premier one-day festival is thrilled to announce its highly anticipated
return to Tredegar Park, Newport on Saturday, 20th July 2024, with headliner ArrDee and
special guests Ben Nicky and Shy FX.

UK rapper ArrDee heads up the bill with appearances from, Ben Nicky, and Shy FX, Girls Don’t
Sync, Nathan Dawe, Badger, Issey Cross, Oppidan, Darren Styles, David Rust, Sander Van Doorn,
and many more artists will take the stage, ensuring a colourful and vibrant atmosphere
throughout the day.

Brighton’s ArrDee is proving to be one of the UK’s most exciting MCs. Adorned with charisma,
the self-confessed “cheeky chappy”, rose to instant fame with his feature on Russ Millions and
Tion Wayne’s ‘Body (Remix)’. The viral hit became the first drill track to reach number one on the
UK charts, soundtracks over a million TikToks, and has clocked up 200 million streams.

The young MC has cemented his place at the top of the charts. He bagged three UK Top 10s in
just three months, with ‘Body (Remix), T2-sampling Digga D-collab ‘Wasted’, and the string-laden
‘Oliver Twist’. Dropping hit after hit, his infectious charisma and witty wordplay have continued
to shine through. His most recent, ‘Flowers (Say My Name)’, samples the iconic beats of Sweet
Female Attitude’s ‘Flowers’ and Destiny Child’s ‘Say My Name’ behind a garage-heavy deep dive
into his Casanova-lifestyle.

Making noise as one of the busiest electronic artists on Earth, Ben Nicky is poised to take on the
world. Earning supreme accolades from industry trailblazers, Ben is recognized by Diplo as the
“leader of a new movement” and by Armin van Buuren as “one of the hardest working DJs in the
industry.” Reaching new heights with chart-topping hits across Beatport, Spotify, and iTunes, Ben
has become a household name across the dance music spectrum with his penchant for fastmoving beats. Coined by Pete Tong as a “multi-genre specialist” and “one of the planet’s busiest

DJs,” Ben continues to lead fans and artists alike on social media to millions of online followers.
