NofitState Circus, which combines live music and dance with traditional circus skills, is part of a packed line up that also features the 2 day Wolvestock country music festival.
Over the last 5 years NofitState Circus has visited 15 different countries, played to audiences of more than 250,000, been critically acclaimed and won numerous international arts awards.
Event organisers say the latest booking for the show - together with the 2 day music festival and camping - adds a festival twist to the popular family event on Saturday 11 July and Sunday 12 July, 2015, which, for the first time, is being held at Wolverhampton Racecourse rather than West Park.
As well as NofitState Circus, family favourites Big Pete Monster Truck and the Bolddog Lings Motorcycle display team will wow crowds in the main arena. Free Radio will also there with a stage, playing host to lots of local dance and music acts.
Debuting this year are stunt quad biker The Kangaroo Kid, performing horses The Stampede Stunt Company and the David Seamark Sheepdog Display.
Other attractions include a funfair, puppet shows, City of Wolverhampton Woodturners, the Wolverhampton & District Model Engineering Society's miniature steam railway, a BMX track and the Black Country Fuchsia Society.
Country music bands already announced to play Wolvestock include The Diablos, Dee D and the James Gang, the West Coast Eagles, Lauren Oaks Band, The Ann Duggan Band and Shot Gun Annie. Soloists include Donna Wylde, Dee D. James, Amy Morgan, Emma Swindells, Nigel Slater as well as the Wolvestock Dance Team and guests.
Councillor John Reynolds, Wolverhampton City Council's Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "We've got one of the broadest line ups of family entertainment I think the show has ever seen. Combining it with Wolvestock and performances from NofitState Circus gives it a bit more of a festival feel. We are hoping for big crowds this year at the racecourse which has better parking and facilities for visitors."
Gates for the City of Wolverhampton Show open on both days at 11am, with arena shows starting at 11.30am. The show finishes at 6pm both days.
Tickets are available on the gate, priced £5 for adults, £4 for children and free for under 2s. Car parking is £3 per car per day.
