Embrace have been announced to headline this year's Stendhal Festival, which takes place at Ballymully Cottage Farm, Limavady in the Roe Valley, Northern Ireland, on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th August 2018.
Joining them on the bill will be And So I Watch You From Afar, the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club, the return of Ryan McMullan, Derek Ryan, The 4 Of Us, electronic producer & DJ Tom Middleton, along with The Logues, Joshua Burnside, Rosborough, Roe, Le Boom, The Irish Video Game Orchestra, Hunkpapa, The Eskies, Ursula Burns, Tony Villiers and the Villains, Mean Mary, The Swingtime Starlets, Waldorf & Cannon, The Ocelots, Electric Octopus, The Pox Men, Dream Awake, The Wood Burning Savages, and Runabay. There's more to be announced.
Stendhal Director Ross Parkhill says "It's tough to keep trying to top our line-up each and every year but again I think we have accomplished it. Embrace have a great fan base and a catalogue of fantastic songs, And So I Watch You From Afar are one of the best live acts to ever come out of Northern Ireland and everyone else will combine to create an incredibly diverse programme which covers as may genres of music as possible." He added "We are happy to not only be showcasing some household names but also continuing to support up and coming Northern Irish talent while introducing our audience to a lot of new musical experiences which we hope will stay with them long after the festival is over."
Ross concluded: "There are still more acts to be announced so this line-up is only going to get even better and that’s not to mention all the non-musical elements of the festival which we have in store for everyone this year. We can’t wait until the full scope of the programme is apparent to all."
Tickets are on sale, currently priced at £50 including camping, or £45 without.
