FIRST ACTS ANNOUNCED FOR FESTIVAL

We are very excited to announce the first batch of artists for the Summer Sundae 2012 line-up.

First up are British post-punk legends Public Image Limited, formed in 1978 by John Lydon, who are creating a big buzz in advance of their first release of new material for 20 years this April . Katy B will also be bringing her intoxicating blend of dubstep, R&B and UK Garage to the festival, having taken the country by storm last year with her album ‘Katy on a Mission’. tUnE-yArDs aka Merrill Garbus is one of the most exciting live acts around and is sure to wow audiences with her vivid sound, artful songwriting and primal voice. Audiences should also ready themselves for the raga-jungle rhythms of Asian Dub Foundation, the pioneering folk of Willy Mason and the hook strewn indie pop of Reverend and the Makers.

And it doesn’t end there, also added to the bill are French singer-songwriter Francois and the Atlas Mountains, enigmatic talent Jonathan Richman, London inspired Spanish singer Juan Zelada and delectably bluesy Lazy Lester with his stellar line-up of fellow musicians. Also on the bill are the charming Dan Mangan, straight-up storyteller Rachel Sermanni, electric country-pop Cashier no 9, hotly tipped folksters Goodnight Lenin, East Midlands’ own pop-folk songstress Grace Petrie, the energetic Magic Tombolinos and finally laid back Welsh surf-rockers Y NIWL.

So another eclectic line-up is definitely forming for the festival. Make sure you keep an eye on our facebook and twitter pages for more cryptic clues in the run up to our second artist announcement which will be made within a month.

Plus be sure to look at the ticketing page on our website to see the amazing offers we have in store this year. With 2012 tickets pegged to 2010 prices, discounted Youth Tickets for 14-17 Year Olds and a couple of hundred Early Bird Tickets left on sale, grab them while you can!

We’re also in the process of creating a brand new mailing list for Summer Sundae. Please go to our website and input your info to be added to our new list and receive our free podcasts created in conjunction with Cuttlefish Multimedia!
