Watch: John Newman @ Balaton Sound, 5 July
John Newman is a multi-faceted DJ, singer, songwriter, and producer creating music on his terms.

2012 smash hit ‘Feel The Love’ in collaboration with Rudimental first put the British upcoming artist on a  trajectory to stardom, going straight in at #1 in the Official UK Charts.

One year later, Newman affirmed  himself as one of the fasted growing mainstream artists by releasing his debut solo single, ‘Love Me  Again,’ taken from his debut album 'Tribute.' The single became an instant UK #1, charting in the Top  10 in over 30 countries and amassing over 1.6 billion worldwide streams.  

Resounding success continued, and in 2014 the x3 BRIT Award nominee teamed up with superstar  Calvin Harris on ‘Blame’, which broke the world record for the most-streamed song in one  day and was the first track to ever hit 10 million Spotify streams in less than one week.

In more  recent times, John's contributions to modern pop culture include a colossal link-up with World #1 DJ and  hit producer David Guetta on ‘If You Really Love Me (How Will I Know)’ and 2023 Tomorrowland  Music debut ‘Hold On To My Love.’ For the first time, John Newman presents himself in a new era as a  solo dance music artist. 

Growing up on a council estate in Northern England, DJing on borrowed gear, Newman's story is about to  come full circle.

His reign as a pop/soul star saw incredible milestones, including over 2.5 billion  streams and nine #1 records as a songwriter and artist.

Collaborations with industry leaders such  as Sigala, Nile Rogers, Galantis and Kygo. As well as a career-defining performance closing  Coachella Festival on stage with Calvin Harris and spectacular live shows at world-class events,  EXIT Festival, Glastonbury, and V Festival, to name a few.

When the world stopped in 2020, John's  lacklustre for creating and the external pressures of the music industry could only be reignited by returning  to his dance music roots. 

‘Waiting A Lifetime’ was the first solo single tease of John Newman reinvigorated. Released  under Warner Music and later remixed by Capital Dance radio host Jess Bays, the track title was a  fitting nod to the mighty career moves to come. 

At the start of 2023, Newman announced his signing with One World Artists, the agency & management  division of iconic dance imprint Tomorrowland, certifying his revised force in the industry and DJ flex.  

Taking his new sound to the masses, Newman curates a cutting-edge hybrid set that encompasses  his signature live vocals and DJing.

Already, he has performed at some of biggest festivals in the world  including Tomorrowland Winter and Daydream Festival, as well as renowned Ibiza superclub Ushuaïa.

 Announced for summer 2023, Newman is set to make a grand debut on the Tomorrowland 2023  mainstage, held in Belgium and attracting 600,000 attendees. More dates to follow soon,  including Tomorrowland Brasil 2023. 

'Hold On To My Love' is Newman's debut single for 2023. What started as an off-the-cuff voice note  recording backstage at Ushuaïa Ibiza is now the first chapter of an immense partnership  with Tomorrowland Music.

Oozing sheer dance euphoria, steady club beats and his unmistakable vocals  and emotively powered delivery, 'Hold On To My Love' places John Newman at the forefront of fresh  electronic talent.
