Grace Davies has been named the winner of the Volvic Rising Star competition and will be performing at the renowned American Express presents BST Hyde Park. The 27-year-old singer-songwriter from Lancashire was selected through a public vote after impressing both judges and fans with her unique vocals and energetic pop melodies.

The competition, a collaboration between global pop star Anne-Marie and Volvic, aimed to spotlight nine emerging artists. Grace Davies will perform on The Birdcage Stage, presented by Volvic, alongside eight other talented musicians, showcasing her skills to festival-goers this summer.

BST Hyde Park, one of London’s premier festivals, features a star-studded lineup including SZA, Kings of Leon, Morgan Wallen, Andrea Bocelli, Robbie Williams, Shania Twain, Stevie Nicks, Kylie Minogue, and Stray Kids. The festival, which spans nine days, offers music across three stages: The Birdcage Stage—presented by Volvic, The Great Oak Stage, and The Rainbow Stage—presented by British Airways.

Volvic, an official partner of BST Hyde Park, has made it their mission to elevate budding musicians. As part of this initiative, the Volvic Emerging Artist line-up was created to provide a platform for new talent. Grace Davies, known for her hands-on approach to her music projects and her goal to inspire women in the industry, will be a part of this prestigious group.

In addition to Grace Davies, the line-up includes Abbie Mac, Ellur, Jessy Blakemore, Nieve Ella, Siobhan Winifred, Olivia Belli, and other soon-to-be-announced artists. These performers will not only gain exposure on the Birdcage Stage but also benefit from an exclusive artist package from Volvic, which includes recording studio sessions, cash prizes, and a VIP festival experience.

Gemma Morgan, Category Director of Beverages, expressed her excitement about the competition result, “Congratulations Grace Davies for being crowned the winner of our Emerging Artist Competition by public vote! We’re thrilled to welcome Grace to our line-up of talented artists, and we can’t wait to see them rock the Birdcage Stage, brought to you by Volvic.”

She continued by saying, “From soulful ballads to electrifying anthems, these talented artists are set to deliver unforgettable performances. With Volvic keeping your taste buds refreshed and the music making you energised, get ready for a perfect blend of great tunes and good vibes. Thank you to everyone who submitted an entry to this year’s competition; the response and the breadth of skill and artistry presented was astounding!”
