Sinead O' Connor leads the first acts and guests announced for Greenbelt Festival 2014 which will take place in the grounds of Boughton House, near Kettering in Northamptonshire after 15 years at Cheltenham.

Also confirmed are Stornoway, Jahmene Douglas, Lau, Gaggle, and Beth Rowley, plus writers Brian McLaren, Nadia Bolz-Weber and Bidisha, preacher and speaker Mpho Tutu, and columnist Owen Jones.

The all-age inclusive friendly arts festival with its roots in the Christian faith which offers a host of world music, international and home-grown acts takes place on the bank holiday weekend from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th August 2014.

With extensive work now beginning on Cheltenham Racecourse's £45 million redevelopment scheme, Greenbelt, now in it's 41st year has taken the decision to move on, after 15 years at Cheltenham Racecourse. With that in mind this year's theme has been announced as 'Travelling Light' - this year’s festival marks a return to Greenbelt’s nomadic roots, with its first site move since 1999.

Greenbelt creative director Paul Northup said, "This is the start of a new chapter for Greenbelt. We’re excited to be moving to the beautiful grounds of Boughton House. And we’re excited at the way our lineup is shaping up. But what excites us most is to see our audience – and new audiences – joining us on the journey."
