The first acts have been announced for this year's Cornbury Music Festival taking place at The Great Tew Estate, at Chipping Norton over three days from Friday 4th until Sunday 6th July 2014.

Friday's line-up features Hudson Taylor, The Feeling, Suzanne Vega, Arrested Development, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, and Jools Holland and the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, with special guests Melanie C, and Marc Almond.

Saturday's line-up includes Jon Allen, The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band, Nina Nesbitt, Lissie, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes featuring Gary U.S. Bonds, Georgie Fame, Scouting For Girls, and Simple Minds.

Sunday's main stage headliner has not yet been announced but will top a bill that includes Sam Bailey, Luke Friend, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, 10cc, Tomoyasu Hotei, and Peatbog Faeries.

Cornbury Music Festival Director, Hugh Phillimore, said, "Once again I think we’ve managed to get a brilliant cross-section of great music – which is of course what we’re all about. Lots of old favourites, all great performers along with some very diverse new talent from a double Grammy Award winning new country star to an X Factor winner with a brilliant story. Old and new Top 10 artists along with international faces - a Japanese movie score writer and US bluesmen - with British national treasures to boot. With Cornbury’s unique family atmosphere, it’s going to be a lot of fun."
