Lightning Seeds
With World Cup fever in the air Lightning Seeds have been confirmed to appear on the main stage on Saturday. Ian Broudie returns this spring with a new Lightning Seeds album, the first for 10 years, and will no doubt showcase one or two new songs at Cheltenham Racecourse, in Gloucestershire in June.

The Big Top has new additions for the bill including Oxford's The Epstein on Friday, Piney Gir, The Outcast Band, The Crowd, and Robbie Williams' harpist/backing singer now doing her own thing, the Lucinda Belle Orchestra on Saturday. Sunday's Big Top line-up swells with the inclusion of Rook And The Ravens, Austrian newcomers J.O.E.L, and The Echoes.

Supermarket Waitrose has been confirmed as the headline sponsor of the sixth annual event, and festival organisers have previously announced that Levellers will headline on Friday, Happy Mondays on Saturday, with Seth Lakeman taking the headline spot on Sunday evening. Joining them are Dreadzone, The South, Kila, Goldheart Assembly, 6 Day Riot, Beth Jeans Houghton, Toumani Diabate, King Creosote, 12 Stone Toddler, One String Loose, Pauline Black, The Travelling Band, The Leisure Society, John Smith, and Adrian Edmondson & The Bad Shepherds, and more.
