The Essex singer-songwriter, who is also one of four judges on ITV’s The Voice, joins a star-studded line-up as the festival makes a welcome return to the picturesque backdrop of Princes Street Gardens.

Among the other big-names booked to perform at this year’s Edinburgh Summer Sessions – to be held between August 6 and 15 – are Sir Tom Jones, Michael Kiwanuka, Simple Minds, Travis and DMA’s.

Anne-Marie, who performs on Thursday, August 12, is regarded as one of the biggest names in UK music right now. Her debut album reached number three in the charts, while the singles 2002 and Friends have also been huge hits.

Having sold out Edinburgh’s Usher Hall in 2019 and with four UK Top 10 singles and 4.5 billion global streams to her name, Anne-Marie’s return to the Capital is sure to be a hot ticket this summer.

HRVY, Gravey and Call Me Loop have also been added to the bill, with tickets for the festival to go on general sale on Friday, April 2 at 9am.

After a year without live music in Scotland, Edinburgh Summer Sessions will provide music fans with the opportunity to soak up the festival atmosphere in one of the most intimate outdoor festival settings in the world.

In recent years, an outstanding mix of stars including Paloma Faith, Florence & the Machine, Chvrches, Primal Scream, Madness and Lewis Capaldi have all performed at Edinburgh Summer Sessions.

Singer Anne-Marie will perform a massive outdoor gig in Edinburgh this summer.
