Jo Whiley's 90s Anthems
The County Ground and Coalition Agency presents
JO WHILEY'S 90S ANTHEMS
Following a show that sold out in just a few days last year, Jo Whiley’s 90s Anthems is back bigger and better with a new outdoor show!
The greatest moments of the 1990s from one the nation’s best-known DJs… Jo Whiley is bringing the best of the decade's music to The County Ground this October.
Jo started her career prior to radio being the music/guest booker on the legendary TV show from the 90s, The Word. The show was created by the best and most innovative TV team of the decade fronted by Charlie Parsons and Waheed Ali. They both took the risk on the young Jo to book their music guests for this ‘live’ Friday night TV show. Like a kid is a sweet shop off Jo went off and booked her favourite bands; this included Nirvana’s first ever UK TV performance, L7 dropping the trousers live on TV, the Manic Street Preachers promising to play the A side single only to come on and play the B side with the first lines ‘Fuck Queen, Fuck Country’. History was being made by The Word and the show started to define the decade.
Jo went on to BBC Radio 1 and presented The Evening Session with co-host Steve Lamacq. The Evening session launch was perfectly timed by the release of some of the best guitar music for years and along came Oasis, Blur and Pulp and the Brit Pop generation was born...
Arguably one of the most recognisable voices in broadcasting, Jo Whiley will be filling the dance floor nationwide with 90s Anthems across the UK.
Think Blur vs Oasis, Fatboy Slim, Primal Scream, The Verve, The Chemical Brothers, Faithless, The Prodigy and much more! This tour is for those who had a great time and remember the 90s and those who had a better time and can’t!
Hey girl, hey boy… Superstar DJ… Here we go!
Saturday 12th September - Gates open 6pm.
This is an outdoor event until 10:15, indoor bars will remain open following this.
