ZURICH, June 17, 2014 /CNW/ - Apl.de.ap from Black Eyed Peas is set to headline EF Summeranza 2014, the ultimate student festival, hosted by EF Education First. This annual festival will bring 5,000 EF students from 50 countries to Kempton Park outside London on July 10, 2014. Festivalgoers will get an exclusive chance to see apl.de.ap's DJ set and hear Black Eyed Peas hits, as well as solo material. UK boy band Room 94 will open the show.

With more than 76m records sold, and global hits such as "Where Is the Love" and "I Gotta Feeling", the group is one of the most successful pop acts of all time. Following in the footsteps of fellow band members Fergie, will.i.am and Taboo, apl.de.ap is launching a solo career and looks forward to delighting fans with more hits.
