Following in the footsteps of DJ Joel Corry and artists like Kaiser Chiefs, who have recently played at victorious Harlequins events such as Big Game 15 against Gloucester, singer-songwriter Jess Glynne will take centre stage.

Glynne, who has ten billion streams, said: “Headlining Big Summer Kick-Off at Twickenham Stadium is going to be big.”

“My new album comes out the day before so I’m looking forward to celebrating with everyone and performing some of my favourite songs.”

Commenting on the return of the Big Summer Kick-Off and his team’s clash with Northampton Saints, Marcus Smith, Harlequins and England fly-half said: “After the amazing experience of defeating Gloucester in front of 76,000 fans at Big Game 15, to be back in front of another electric crowd will be special.”

“Coming up against a rival like Northampton Saints the match will definitely have an extra edge, both on and off the pitch.”

“We can’t wait to put on a great show and hopefully come away with an important win.”
