Rudimental To Headline Cricket’s ‘The Hundred’ Final In 2023
Rudimental have revealed they will headline cricket’s The Hundred final.
The UK dance-pop outfit, famous for their hit Waiting All Night, lead the musical line-up – which is curated in collaboration with BBC Music Introducing – for this year’s cricket tournament. The bill also features Lottery Winners, Asha Gold, Dylan and Prima Queen, who will perform at sports grounds throughout the country during the event, which starts on 1 August.
Rudimental – who will perform at the legendary Lord’s Cricket Ground in London on 27 August – said in an official statement: “We’re excited to perform at The Hundred Final this year. We’re massive sports fan so we’re looking forward to the match.
“Also, we love that BBC Music Introducing is involved as we’re big supporters of working with emerging talent, so this is a fantastic platform for sports fans to pick up on new music. Looking forward to performing at this great event.”
Previous headliners at The Hundred have been Bastille and Jax Jones, while the likes of Self Esteem, Becky Hill and Everything Everything have also performed.
As well as a live musical performance at each match, 2023 will also see the return of The Hundred’s resident DJs, including BBC Radio 1’s Sam + Danni, as well as players Charlie Burley and Emily Pilbeam.

Released on 28 April Home (10th Anniversary Edition) includes an EP’s worth of specially commissioned new remixes, starting with Bristol drum & bass titan Clipz’s aptly titled ‘Joy & Pain’ remix of the classic album track More Than Anything feat. Emeli Sandé, released on 22 March.
