Returning to the festival in Guildford, Surrey, for the first time since 2001, Bjorn Again are amongst the latest additions to be confirmed for this summer's family friendly GuilFest taking place over the weekend of Friday 13th to Sunday 15th July 2012.

Bjorn Again
Created and founded by director and musician Rod Stephen, the rocked-up light-hearted satirical ABBA spoof has achieved world-wide cult status since its inception in 1988. The show, which is widely acknowledged for singlehandedly initiating the ABBA revival which brought about ABBA Gold, Muriel's Wedding and Mamma Mia comes to Stoke Park on The Main Stage on Saturday 14th July.

On Sunday 'Staying out for the Summer' hitmakers Dodgy will be performing on The Good Time Guide Stage, whilst Alvin Stardust returns to GuilFest on The Main Stage. Best known for his hits 'My Coo-Ca-Choo', 'Jealous Mind', and 'Pretend', the pop icon with the leather glove (and catsuit) shot to fame with a raft of moody hits with impossibly catchy choruses.

Hotly tipped South London based indie/RnB new band Bastille will appear on The Good Time Guide Stage on Saturday.

Elsewhere at the festival there are new confirmations on The Big Cheese Cave: with Rolo Tomassi, Feed The Rhino, TRC confirmed to appear on Saturday, with LostAlone taking to the stage on Friday.

The Vive Le Rock Stage will host The Glitterband on Saturday, all-female rockers The Priscillas, and mod revival group The Chords both appearing on Sunday 15th July.

The Kane FM presents Funky End Dance tent sees two young Brighton based UK producer Dismantle and dubstep trio Millions Like Us appear on Saturday.

Lastly, comedy spoof act Take Fat will take to The Main Stage on Saturday with Gary Lardo, Jason Chocolate Orange, Howard McDonalds, Mark Growin and Blobbie Williams perform their own medley of Take That hits, like you've never seen before – complete with 'phat' dance routines and spectacular visuals.
