News: Sophie Ellis-Bextor Announces Biggest Ever Headline Show At On The Mount At Wasing

It has been an incredible few years for Sophie Ellis-Bextor who has cemented herself as pop royalty having entertained the nation both through their screens and live in sold out venues up and down the country with her Kitchen Disco. She has performed on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury, released a top 10 album, and recently seen her song ‘Murder On The Dancefloor’ experience an incredible resurgence around the world after featuring in the closing scene in the film, Saltburn.

Now, Sophie-Ellis Bextor will celebrate this extraordinary success with a huge summer party this year – her biggest ever headline show – when the concert series On The Mount at Wasing will become On The Dancefloor at Wasing for one night only!

Taking place on Wednesday 26th June in the most stunning of venues, the exclusive outdoor headline show will see her bring the disco party to the Berkshire countryside, The Mount on the Wasing Estate, which is nestled in a spectacular woodland amphitheatre.

The one night only show and ultimate countryside disco party this summer features special guests Princess Superstar and Fat Tony

Featuring in the climactic scene of Saltburn, ‘Murder on the Dancefloor’ returned to the UK Top 10 Singles Chart for the first time since its original 2001 release recently, as well as debuting in the US Billboard Top 100, spawning news articles, cover versions, viral lip syncs, and more. The song will be re-released on limited edition 7 inch vinyl and CD on 16th February.

On her exclusive headline show at Wasing, Sophie said:‘It’s been a magical and surreal time for me in the last couple of months, let alone the last few years!

It’s going to be really special having our own massive celebration at On the Mount at Wasing, tucked away from the world in the middle of the Berkshire countryside.’

Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Summer Celebration will take place as part of the On The Mount at Wasing concert series which returns in 2024 for its second year following a hugely successful debut.

Previously announced for On The Mount at Wasing 2024 are Australian rock icons Crowded House who will kick off the shows on 17th June, London electronic duo Jungle who will perform with their explosive full live band on 27th June, and dance icons Underworld who will headline on 29th June.

Wasing Estate will also present Solstice At The Mount on 20th June; an immersive celebration of world music & culture with headliners Nick Mulvey and Rodrigo Y Gabriela on the main stage together with intimate late night fireside performances from Awarë and Ajeet.

Set on Wasing (pronounced ‘Way-zing’) Estate, The Mount is a stunning enclave right in the heart of the countryside. From the woodland trail arrival into a unique & mindful space to the wildflowers awaiting concertgoers within the amphitheatre, this is a truly transportive venue to see defining live acts, fully immersed in nature.

Further acts are to be announced for On The Mount At Wasing 2024.
