It’s been a good two years for Elliot as he now comes back to perform as a huge superstar. Example will surely draw in the crowds. UK Chart toppers like ‘Change the Way You kiss Me’ and ‘Stay Awake’ have made Example a popular music idol among fans. ‘Playing with Shadows’ is one of Elliot’s most recognized work to date, it launched him to stardom.

Imagine Dragons, a Las Vegas band (quartet) will be one of the performers for the last night. The group is the final act on Friday, August 22. This will be the group’s debut at Belsonic. Imagine Dragons rose to prominence with its certified gold (UK) LP, ‘Night Visions’.
