Conleth Maenpaa, Owner of Nokomis and Bor Events and Founder of Lindisfarne Festival commented, "We are delighted to add the critically acclaimed Public Service Broadcasting to our line-up alongside our other great acts. With a number of sell out shows across the UK including one in Newcastle, and after receiving rave reviews at the BBC 6 Music Festival 2015, it's great to be able to give their fans an opportunity to see them again in the North East.
"We feel they will add something really unique to the festival with their spell-binding live AV transmissions and the way they powerfully convey lessons of the past through the music of the future. They have a really distinctive sound, weaving samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material around live drums, guitar, banjo and electronics."
They join Reverend and The Makers, Craig Charles, DJ Yoda, Smoove and Turrell, The Skints, Nadine Shah, The Lake Poets, Johnny Dickinson, Hannabiell and Midnight Blue, Frankie & The Heartstrings, The Happy Cats, Trev Gibb, Backyard Rhythm Orchestra, Shields, Slow light Quartet, Mister Tooley, World Headquarters (WHQ), Dancing with Ghosts,G hetto Funk All-stars, JFB, Jackie Oates, The Church, Sean Taylor, and The Tribe.
