Bruno Mars, Bastille and Rudimental will join Arctic Monkeys and Katy Perry and perform live at the BRIT Awards 2014, which are taking place at London’s O2 Arena on Wednesday, February 19.

Winner of International Male Solo Artist in 2012, Bruno Mars has been the year’s biggest selling US male artist and to date has sold over 10-million albums worldwide.

Flying the flag for new British music, Rudimental and Bastille will both perform at the BRITs for the first time. Both have enjoyed success in 2013 with their debut albums – Home and Bad Blood – topping the charts; the latter being the biggest selling debut album of the year.

Rudimental said: “We are really looking forward to playing the BRITs. We went to the event for the very first time this year when we were nominated for Best Single for Feel The Love. We didn’t win but it was such an amazing night celebrating the best of British music.

“So to actually be a part of the event this time round is the icing on the cake after such an incredible year too. We are definitely going to bring the party vibe”.

Further acts for the main show will be announced in the coming weeks.
