Top singer-songwriter Ben Howard is the latest big name announcement for the 2018 Eden Sessions.

Along with his sprawling six-piece band, BRIT Award-winner Ben will play on Saturday June 30, three years after his last sold-out performance at Eden when he was hailed as the region’s returning hero. 

The announcement coincides with the release of A Boat To An Island On the Wall, taken from Ben’s forthcoming album Noonday Dream, to be released on June 1, 2018, via Island Records. 

Noonday Dream was recorded in numerous studios between South West France and South West England, including Sawmills Studio in Cornwall.  It was produced by Ben.

Ben grew up near Totnes in Devon.  While studying in Cornwall at Falmouth University he decided to concentrate full-time on making music, honing his craft in and around the town.  

Ben Howard joins Gary Barlow (June 6 – sold out), Massive Attack and Young Fathers (June 15 and June 16 – sold out), A Beautiful Day Out at Eden featuring Levellers, New Model Army, Reef, Dreadzone and Ginger Wildheart (June 23), Queens of the Stone Age (July 3 – sold out),  Jack Johnson (July 5 – sold out) and Björk (July 7 – sold out) on the bill for the 2018 Eden Sessions.

Tickets are on sale to members of the Inside Track club until 5pm on Tuesday April 10.  Tickets go on general sale at 5pm on Friday April 13 through
