MEADOWLANDS have announced the final additions to the Gerry Cinnamon headlined all-dayer. Taking place on the Friday (3rd June) of the Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend, Meadowlands is a brand new festival held at Nottingham’s Victoria Embankment. Across three stages, MEADOWLANDS will play host to some of the nation’s much loved and established live acts alongside some of the hottest bands to emerge over the last year.
The BBC Music Introducing stage is curated by local radio legend Dean Jackson and will see some of the best local talent playing the biggest new music event in the county. Vona Vella, fresh from touring with Tim Burgess and The Libertines, join the line up alongside Marty, the band already turning heads after little more than a year together. Nottingham’s Catmilk will bring their unique brooding folk combined with a hit of nostalgic 90s grunge and, coming over from Sheffield, The Rosadocs are already firm Introducing favourites along with Derby’s Emzae who has crafted a unique style of intricate, homemade pop.
BBC Radio Nottingham’s Dean Jackson says “I am thrilled to curate a BBC Introducing stage at Meadowlands and delighted that the team there are showing support for incredible local musicians to perform alongside rising national artists. Vona Vella and Catmilk are just two of the Nottingham artists who have my national colleagues really excited at present and Merseyside’s Michael Aldag is an exceptional performer found on TikTok with perceptive emotional songs reflecting life in 2022. But there are plenty more; it will be a day to remember with The Embankment the perfect backdrop for this incredible event.”
New additions appearing on Stage Two are Liverpool band, RATS, promising to deliver a scruffy blast of direct and anthemic indie and Overpass from Birmingham, who ended 2021 with four releases, a debut UK headline tour and support slots with the likes of The Wombats, The Fratellis and The Snuts.

Headlining the 3rd June city centre festival, GERRY CINNAMON’s gigs have become folklore – joyous mass fan singalongs inspiring devotion and a dedicated following that has swelled, via word-of-mouth, to epic proportions. The show in Nottingham will be one of only a handful of shows his fans will be able to see him outdoors in the UK in Summer of 2022.
