The Enemy - 30,000 Coventry gig

The Enemy - stars of Coventry's biggest ever open air party.

Coventry band The Enemy, will be playing at the biggest open-air festival Coventry has ever seen. The annual Godiva Festival will be making changes so that up to 30,000 fans will be able to attend the free festival. The Coventry trio were performing in Leeds at the weekend as support for the Kaiser Chiefs and head off to Ibiza this week to launch "Ibiza Rocks"

The main tent is being replaced by a large open stage and will be relocated to a different part of the Memorial Park so that an extra 27,000 visitors can watch The Enemy perform tracks from their number one selling album "We'll Live And Die In These Towns".

Included in this years Godiva Festival line up along side The Enemy will be Exit Calm, an up and coming band that are tipped to be big and are mentored by the Coventry manager who took The Enemy under his wings. Glasvegas will also be taking to the stage during the three day festival, they have also been tipped for the top by music mogul Alan McGee - the man who discovered Oasis. Recently signed to Columbia records, Glasvegas have already won the Radar Award at the NME Awards in March. Their debut album is due out later this summer and is a fusion between "fifties Rock 'n' Roll with a large helping of Jesus and Mary Chain", according to the Coventry Telegraph.

The Ripps will rock Godiva

The cream of Coventry will also be on stage during the eleventh Godiva Festival, The Ripps and Pint Shot Riot are expected to add to the electric atmosphere. Art Brut, The Displacements and Dogfight Revolution have been added to the event which will take place at Coventry's Memorial Park from Friday 4th July until Sunday 6th July 2008.
