Mungo Jerry and Crazy World of Arthur Brown are amongst the latest additions to be confirmed for next month's GuilFest.

Arthur Brown
Both acts are confirmed as playing the Good Time Guide Stage on Saturday, classic English folk/rock group Mungo Jerry. This will be the first time that three of the original members of the band have performed together since 1973! Led by the groups only original member, Ray Dorset, the band will be bringing 'Mungomania' to GuilFest along with their most famous instantly recognisable 1970's hit 'In The Summertime' - a song that stayed at number 1 in the UK charts for 7 weeks and has sold 30 million copies to date.

Bringing his 'Fire' back to GuilFest for the first time since 2003 Arthur Brown returns with his band The Crazy World of Arthur Brown. 'Fire' was a number 1 hit in 1968 and to to this day it still receives airplay around the world. It has also been covered by some of the most famous acts on the planet, including Ozzy Osbourne, The Prodigy and The Who. Infamous for setting himself on fire in legendary stage shows, Arthur has been cited as a major influence by artists such as Peter Gabriel, Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson and Alice Cooper.

New confirmations for The Rock Sound Cave are grunge punks Lower Than Atlantis playing Sunday and indie rockers FranKo, performing on Saturday.
