"Budiño is renowned for his high energy performance and the band will undoubtedly close the festival in style. They play to enormous crowds around the world and it's a real coup to tempt them to Shrewsbury.
"We hope the eclectic line up and addition of popular acts like Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel will encourage more people to come and experience this world class festival tucked away in a corner of Shropshire!"
