The team behind the Haslemere Fringe are delighted to announce the signing of Betty Boo for the 2022 festival. Betty is a Brit and Ivor Novello Award winning singer, songwriter and pop-rap artist who first came to mainstream prominence in the late 1980s, following a collaboration with The Beatmasters on the song “Hey DJ/I Can’t Dance”. Between 1990 and 1992 she enjoyed a successful solo career, which spawned a number of chart-placing singles, most notably “Doin’ the Do” and “Where Are You Baby?“.

Now back in 2022 with new singles “Get me to the Weekend” which is sure to stick in your head, and her latest hit “Shining Star” Betty said, “The muse came back out of nowhere during lockdown and I have made the record I should have made when I was 25”.

Betty will perform at the Fringe on Sunday, 3rd July, joining artists including Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Bare Jams, Mission Impossible and many more.
