Benjamin Francis Leftwich has been confirmed as the Sunday night headliner at Willowman Festival happening at Lenthor Farm near Osmotherley over four days on the Summer Solstice weekend from Thursday 21st to Sunday 24th June 2012.

Benjamin Francis Leftwich
The singer songwriter from York followed the release of his debut album 'Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm' in the summer with a flurry of festival appearances. This month he released his third single 'Pictures' the follow up to 'Box of Stones' and Atlas Hands' and is currently on the road with an expanded sound and a full band joining him for the first time.

Steve Williams organiser of the Willowman Festival commented, "We are delighted to have secured Mr Leftwich for our festival, he will headline the Sunday night and he has squeezed us in between a string of sell out European, Canadian and American gigs."

Steve also added, "Our festival has an eclectic booking policy which strives to provide a mix of genres, local and national acts, established performers and future stars. Benjamin fits our billing on a number of levels."

Acts confirmed for the family friendly event include Neville Staples Band, Rythmites, DJ Derek, Project 142, White Negroes, Vintage Trouble, Hugh Cornwall, John Otway, Subgiant, Zub Zub, Hyde & Beast, Chased by Wolves, Jah Wobble, 3 Daft Monkeys, Akahum, Lunajet, and The Bluebuds.

The Willowman Festival will have an acoustic stage, Reggae Sound System Tent and loads for the kids to do. There is also quality trade stands a wide variety of international food stalls and a Real Ale Beer Tent. The site also hosts 'Sentry Circle' a Pagan stone circle used regularly by visiting Pagans. With Summer Solstice that week festival goers could all be dancing in the moonlight.

Limited early bird tickets are priced at £50 for a full weekend including camping (live in vehicles are £15 per vehicle). Other ticket options for youths, campervans etc will be available at a later date.
