Festibelly, the small festival held in Lymington, Hampshire surrounded by the New Forest on Saturday 27th August has announced the first acts for this year's line-up.

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
2011 will see additions to performance and arts areas with acts appearing on the main stage, electronic arena, acoustic tent, arts and performance tents, as well as collaborations from a number of Festi-friends old and new. The first acts confirmed are Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Ghostpoet, Drums Of Death, Man Like Me (live), Hollie Cook, She Keeps Bees, Lulu and the Lampshades, Kyla La Grange, My Sad Captains, Skinny Lister, The Operators, Psychemagik, Dimbleby & Capper, This Is The Kit, Oh Ruin, Chancery Blame & The Gadjo Club, Marmaduke Dando, and DiceJar.

The DJs line-up will include Batty Bass, Greco Roman Soundsystem, Reggae Roast, Fear of Theydon, Sombrero Sound System, The Mojo Filter (DJ Set), and Low-Fro. There are more acts, including the headliners, still to be confirmed.

Once the main stage entertainment has finished, the campfire will offer a good old sing song with some exclusive acoustic sets from the featured artists. Areas for this year include a new Massive In China tent offering wrong cabaret, circus performance, a wonky gameshow, magic-not-magic acts, stand-up comedy, and music.

A new treetop stage, The Nest, nestled amongst the giant oaks of the Festi-forest sees Fear of Theydon curating a line-up of cosmic, disco and Balearic acts.

Throughout the day and into the early hours Le Disco Silence will be catering for all the night owls.

An alternative to the main stage the Terrapin Station will offer acoustic, folk, gypsy, jazz and the Festibelly Folk Off - the signer/songwriter competition where the crowd casts their vote and crown one lucky contestant Folk King/Queen, winning themselves an opening slot on the main stage for 2012.

Autumn Shift return in 2011 with their cosy café, live poetry, painting and massages, whilst Amazing Radio will be broadcasting live from the Festibelly site, providing as-it-happens coverage of the festival, live sessions and interviews and all the latest news and info.
