Headlining: Main Stage, Saturday 2016
Among the most inventive and influential bands in the history of popular music, 10cc are one of the very few acts to have achieved commercial, critical and creative success in equal measure. It’s been an incredible 44 years since the release of 10cc’s first single Donna, which reached No.2 in the UK charts and kick-started an amazing career with album sales in excess of 30 million around the world.
Everyone is familiar with 10cc’s number one hits; I’m Not In Love, Dreadlock Holiday and Rubber Bullets, which earned them two Ivor Novello Awards. For decades, they have stood for the kind of heightened pop sensibility achieved only by a select few. As Rolling Stone put it in 1975,
There is more going on in one 10cc song than on the last ten Yes albums.
In recent years the band has toured in Australia, Canada, Europe, South Africa and the US, as well as setting another landmark with their first ever performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Remarkably given their huge popularity, the band are still growing their fan base as more young people are discovering their music, and we welcome them to Wychwood as our Saturday night headliners.
