After Kew Garden's popular Summer Swing events were re-launched in 2011 as 'Kew the Music', the week-long series of music and picnic gigs appear to have gone from strength to strength.
Kicking the West London season off will be Status Quo with special guests The Straits on 3rd July, followed by Heather Small and Mike Pickering's dance/soul crossover outfit M People on the 4th July, supported by ace disco-funk legends Chic featuring Nile Rodgers.
The third night, 5th July, sees a change in pace as the Oregon-based thirteen-member jazz band Pink Martini bring their Hollywood-inspired big sounds to the party, with Tim Minchin in support. Friday night on 6th July belongs to singer songwriter, James Morrison. Fresh from his recent No 1 album 'The Awakening', the BRIT winner has now sold approaching 5 million albums worldwide.
Original Pop Idol Will Young, who has been one of the genre's great success stories, picking up BRIT awards (two) and selling nearly 10 million albums, will perform on the Saturday 7th July. His fifth studio record, 'Echoes', which featured the smash hit single 'Jealousy', entered the charts at No 1. Will is joined by Nerina Pallot, the Platinum-selling, BRIT Award and Ivor Novello Award nominated British singer and songwriter.
The 2012 festival comes to a close on 8th July with an evening of Latin fun, led by legendary rumba flamenco outfit the Gipsy Kings, who have continued to prosper since their eponymous debut album sold more than 14 million copies.
