The first headliner and more have been revealed for the over-18s-only Lindisfarne Festival, which takes place on Beal Farm, Berwick-Upon-Tweed, Northumberland from Friday 29th August to Sunday 1st September 2019.
Headlining the Saturday night are Ocean Colour Scene. Also performing - rather aptly - are Lindisfarne, who won't meet you on the corner but will be playing a Glastonbury-esque 'Legends' slot late-Friday afternoon. There's also a bunch of festival favourites with Ferocious Dog, Zion Train, Elvana, 3 Daft Monkeys, Tankus the Henge, The Baghdaddies, Colonel Mustard and the Dijon Five, Big Fat Panda, The Skapones, Megan Airlie, and HATi.
Simon Fowler of Ocean Colour Scene said; "We are really looking forward to headlining Lindisfarne Festival. It is in such a beautiful and historic place and it's great to see they will be raising much needed funds for Crisis through the Musicians Against Homelessness campaign and charities."
Conleth Maenpaa, founder of Lindisfarne Festival commented: "We are absolutely thrilled to have secured Ocean Colour Scene and Lindisfarne for our 2019 lineup! They are undoubtably some of the best live bands around and have been popular suggestions from our festival fans over the years. It's always great to be able to give our loyal followers what they want."
Previously confirmed are the first-ever acts on the main stage on Thursday, who are The Showhawk Duo, Smoove and Turrell, and DJ Yoda.
Conleth added: "As we plan to make our fifth year extra special, we're bringing back a number of the most loved acts from our last four festivals including The Showhawk Duo, Ferocious Dog and Smoove & Turrell! After reaching full capacity in 2018, we're simply looking to grow better not bigger in 2019. As always, we're determined to make this year even greater than the last and we are proud once again to be doing our bit for charity at the same time by raising funds for Crisis via Musicians Against Homelessness."
With the Friday headliner still to be announced, the festival features over 200 acts across 10 stages, including live music, comedy, DJ's til 4am, an indie disco, blues tent, yoga & meditation, alternative therapies, workshops, fire shows, street performers, stalls, street food, chill-out zones & more.
