Happy Mondays have been revealed as the Friday headliner for Lindisfarne Festival 2018, which takes place on Beal Farm, in Northumberland from Thursday 30th August to Sunday 2nd September 2018.
The festival has also announced it will support UK charity Crisis and their "Musicians Against Homelessness" initiative.
Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder said about playing Lindisfarne:
“We're all really looking forward to headlining Lindisfarne Festival on 31st August. It’s going to be a great party!! Love that the festival supports Musicians Against Homelessness too - a great cause!”
Conleth Maenpaa, the founder of Lindisfarne Festival, commented on the announcement:
“We are absolutely thrilled to add Happy Mondays to what is undoubtedly our biggest and best line up to date. This year we are stepping things up in every way imaginable and with ticket sales currently exceeding all our expectations, we know that this year is going to be the most incredible party the North East has ever seen!”
“We are exceptionally proud to be supporting Musicians Against Homelessness again in 2018. The organisation is a true inspiration and its dedicated volunteers are not only a huge credit to the music industry but to humanity! Last year our festivalgoers helped raise a substantial amount for the campaign and this year we’re committed to doing everything we can to support both their fundraising efforts and their mission to create opportunities for more unsigned musicians.”
