Indie band The Hoosiers and rhythm and blues band Dr Feelgood have been announced as just two of the headliners at this year’s Lechlade Music Festival.
Bursting onto the British music scene in the noughties with smash hits ‘Goodbye Mr. A’, ‘Worried About Ray’ and ‘Choices’, Brit award-winning band The Hoosiers are renowned for their fantastic hooks and electric stage presence.
Formed in the 1970s Dr. Feelgood have enjoyed global success with a string of hit singles including Roxette, Back in the Night, Milk and Alcohol, Down at the Doctors, She Does it Right, Going Back Home and See You Later Alligator – which gave the group their first gold record.
The bands will headline on Sunday night, with further headline announcements expected joining the Saturday line-up.
The festival closes on Sunday night with ‘That 80s Rock Show’ – described as “an 80s nostalgia filled, Flux Capacitor powered Time Machine show.” The colourful 6 piece rock band perform classic 80s hits and were a big hit at last year’s event.
Organisers have extended the Early Bird discount until 14 February to enable fans and festival-goers to take advantage of the significant savings.
Families can expect even more free activities over the weekend, including music, dance and craft workshops and a daily children’s party with well-known characters. The Friday night has been designated a party night with ABBA, Rolling Stones and Mod music tribute bands.
The Festival takes place over the bank holiday weekend from 26 to 28 May 2017, with camping and glamping from Friday to Monday. Children 16 and under go free and a new Young Adult ticket benefits 17 to 19 year olds.
