Peter Hook and the Light, The Christians have been announced as headliners for the FREE Dartford Festival, which takes place at Central Park, Dartford, Kent, and happens this year on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th July 2017.
Dartford Festival has been running for over 80 years and has developed from a town carnival into a much-loved FREE music and family fun weekend.
Other acts also performing over the two days are Ian Prowse & Amsterdam, X-Factor winner Matt Terry, Skatonics, M.A.N.E., Space, Queen II, L E I O, Shane Hampsheir, and Charlyn.
The Christians lead singer Garry Christian said "The band and I are really buzzing to be playing Dartford Festival especially on our 30th anniversary year .... we want to show everyone that despite not getting to Kent often enough that Dartford is certainly NOT a 'Forgotten Town' - can't wait to get everyone in full festival happy mood on July 15th when we'll be singing all the hits you (hopefully) remember! .... see you then xx."
Council Leader Jeremy Kite said "The line-up for this year's Festival is really coming together and it has the makings of a classic year. Peter Hook and The Christians will be names familiar to serious music lovers and it's wonderful that they are going to be on the Festival stage here at Dartford."
And you don't even need a ticket. What's not to like about free? :-)
