Getting There

For our Feb Fed Live, we have a fab line-up of singer/songwriter songstresses, featuring hugely popular electro-pop artist Vera Blue as our headliner.

After the release of her third studio album, Mercurial in 2022, and a series of sold-out shows, Vera Blue brings her ethereal, heart-on-her-sleeve, synthy, soaring pop to Fed Square for an all-ages free gig.

Vera Blue is supported by indie-pop artist Gretta Ray, multi-instrumentalist singer, songwriter, producer and hitmaker Vetta Borne – and rising pop/R&B artist Jewel Owusu.

We’ll also have food trucks on site throughout the evening for when you get peckish Chef Calamari will be giving away free fish and chips to the first 60 people from 6pm (limit of one per person).

She followed this success with the chart-topping singles All the Pretty Girls, The Way That You Love Me, and Lie to Me, as well as the Flume collaboration Rushing Back.
