Ian McCullough will bring Echo and the Bunnymen to join the previously anonunced co-headliner Peter Hook and at North Yorkshire's Willowman Festival

Also confirmed are festival favourites Dreadzone, they join the first acts confirmed who were Peter Hook and the Light, Hazel O'Connor, Ferocious Dog, New Groove Formation, Neck, Astralasia, The Jeff Green Project, Bessie and the Zinc Buckets, Big Red & The Grinners, The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican, Louise Petit, and Charlotte Yanni.

Returning to the Hillside Rural Activities Park, Knayton between Thirsk & Northallerton, in North Yorkshire. The family friendly event takes place over four days on the Summer Solstice weekend from Thursday 18th to Sunday 21st June 2015.

Festival director Steve Williams said, "Echo and The Bunnymen had a fantastic 2014 and the band look to carry on gigging hard in 2015. After last year’s tours the band are super-tight and played some blinding sets which Willowman fans can look forward too in June.

"They will be joined by Hooky’s band which started off as a small project and has grown into a major globe-trotting act.  I can’t wait to hear that classic cannon of songs blast from the Willowman stage – it’s going to be amazing."

The event held over the Summer Solstice weekend also offers many onsite activities for children, plus a whole host of robots, faeries, jugglers and stilt walkers adding to the laid back atmosphere.
