Tom Clarke will be playing an acoustic set for the headline slot of Saturday night’s Rhythm Tent.

Tom is best known as the lead vocalist of The Enemy, a Coventry band who reached mainstream success in 2007 with their debut album “We’ll Live and Die In These Towns”, which went straight to number 1 on its first week of release in the British Album Charts. 

After The Enemy disbanded last year, Tom has recently confirmed he will be doing a tour in June and July to acoustically celebrate the 10 year anniversary of “We’ll Live and Die In These Towns”.  The tour will feature Tom performing songs from the album in an acoustic set, with Godiva Festival’s appearance set to be the last stop of Tom’s solo tour.

Tom said: “This year also marks 10 years since The Enemy first played at Godiva Festival, so it's amazing to be able to announce that I'll be performing a full unplugged set at the festival to end the run of dates on the anniversary tour.”

Lee House, the Council’s Events Manager, added: “We know that there’s lots of love for Tom in Coventry and it’s good to be able to invite Tom back to play to play an acoustic set to celebrate the success of Tom and The Enemy within Coventry."

This announcement follows the confirmation that The Stranglers will headline on Friday night, while The Darkness will headline on Sunday evening.

Saturday’s main stage headliner and other acts including rock acts for the Friday Rock Tent will be announced soon.

Coventry Godiva Festival, which remains the UK’s biggest free family music festival, will take place on 7-9 July in the War Memorial Park in Coventry.
