Floating Stage Performances

Wednesday 7th July - MADNESS

Madness is a band that retains a strong sense of who and what it is. Many of the same influences are still present in their sound - ska, reggae, Motown, rock'n'roll, rockabilly, classic pop, and the pin-sharp vernacular of their beloved London streets.

Thursday 8th July - JAMES BLUNT

The five-time Grammy nominated and multiple BRIT award winning artist is no stranger to festival spotlight and will wow the crowds at Henley Festival.


Sophie Ellis-Bextor shot to fame as a vocalist on Spiller's huge number one single Groovejet, followed by Take Me Home and her worldwide smash hit, Murder on the Dancefloor - sure to have everyone up on their feet and dancing the night away!
