Festival director Ross Parkhill commented on the announcement:

“We pride ourselves on being a value for money event,” said Ross, “and when you combine this second Line-up announcement with what we already have on the bill, I think it’s safe to say that you will be getting plenty of bang for your buck at Stendhal this year.

“We are so happy with what is on the bill this year and while I don’t want to single any others out above anyone else, I have to say on a personal level how incredibly excited and proud we all are to have secured the Wailers to headline the Saturday.

“This band played a key role in composing and releasing some of the most iconic tracks in the entire history of music and to have them play Stendhal is an absolute honour.”

In closing Ross added: “A massive thank you to everyone who has bought tickets to the event this year so far, ticket sales have been really good this year to date, if they continue to go like they have been we expect to be announcing a second sell out year in mid-July.

“So with that in mind, if you haven’t got your tickets yet, please do so soon to avoid disappointment as projections are suggesting that like last year, we will sell out.”
