Fusion Festival with Vimto 2015 today announced a UK Exclusive, Canadian superstar Justin Bieber will be headlining the first ever Friday night at Fusion Festival, kicking off a massive weekend of Pop in Birmingham’s Cofton Park.

For the first time, Fusion becomes a three day festival with Tinie Tempah, Rixton, DJ Fresh and Fuse ODG joining Justin on the Friday and Rudimental and McBusted headlining Saturday and Sunday night respectively.
The original YouTube sensation, Justin Bieber was catapulted into the limelight in 2007 after uploading several videos to YouTube of him singing.
