Whigfield added to line-up of first Popworld Festival in Yorkshire

Put your hands up and make some noise because the best of the ‘90s and early noughties pop is coming to Leeds. Whether you lived through those eras and want to step back into a time warp of nostalgia or you just love a cheesy tune, Millennium Square will play host to the golden era of pop on August 6th 2022.

So, if you’ve never had a dream come true, now is your chance with top acts, including the Cheeky Girls, Fatman Scoop, S Club, Whigfield and 5ive, as well as headliner, Peter Andre, who will be performing all his greatest hits, including everyone’s favourite, ‘Mysterious Girl’.

Make your way over to Millennium Square from 5.30pm and sing along to some classic tracks while you dance the night away. Yorkshire native, turned killer DJ, Paul chuckle of Chuckle Brothers fame, will be spinning some classic pop anthems in his non-stop set. 

Whigfield has now been added to the line-up and will be making an appearance later in the night so dust off your best dance moves and get ready to be driven crazy by this classic 90s icon to Saturday Night.

Speaking about the biggest pop party Leeds has ever seen, organiser from Stonegate Group, Robert Smith, says: Finally, after 3 years in the making, we’re ecstatic that the Popworld Festival is 100% going ahead this year.
