Jake Bugg has announced a show at Sherwood Forest.

‘Lightning Bolt’ hitmaker Jake Bugg will head to Sherwood Pines Forest for his first hometown show in almost three years, on the 23rd June 2016.

The show comes as part of the Forest Live series, promoted by the Forestry Commission. Sherwood Forest already boasts upcoming shows from Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott on the 24th June, and Elbow’s Guy Garvey on the 25th June 2016.

In the run-up to the performance, Bugg will perform four warm-up shows in different venues across London in March 2016.

The Nottingham-born singer-songwriter recently returned to the limelight with new song ‘On My One’, which he dropped last week.

He also confirmed that he would play a one-off gig with The 1975 on the 29th Feb 2016; the day after his 22nd birthday.

This morning, Jake Bugg was also added to V Festival’s 2016 bill. The ‘Two Fingers’ hitmaker will perform alongside Sia, Kaiser Chiefs, Little Mix, and Years & Years, with Justin Bieber and Rihanna topping the line-up.

Tickets for Jake Bugg’s show at Sherwood Forest go on sale at 9 am on the 2nd Mar 2016.
