Humes rose to fame as one part of the four-piece boy band, JLS, who dazzled audiences on the fifth season of the X Factor. JLS finished second to Alexandra Burke, but capitalised on the exposure from the prime time reality show, going on to record successive number one singles.

As well as hosting an Ibiza-themed show on Capital FM, the R&B singer has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry, and is ready to cement his place as a respected DJ, and producer.
Humes is one of many acts confirmed for the festival-style event which takes place between 6-11pm on 30 June in Gadebridge Park.
Also performing are vocalist Nikki Ambers, and DJ Pandar, with organisers promising to announce more acts before the summer show.
Due to high demand, the Ibiza Orchestra Experience has added two more stages for this year’s event.
Humes and the 26-piece orchestra will; appear on the main stage, a supporting arena will be set up for a silent disco. The third stage will be a disco dome.
Previously the orchestra has performed songs from well-known dance acts such as: Massive Attack, Ian Van Dahl, Daft Punk, Robert Miles, Energy 52, Tiesto, Fatboy Slim, Prodigy, and Candi Staton.
