THE final acts lined up for this summer’s Cornbury Festival have been announced.
Taking to the stage at Great Tew Park, Oxfordshire, from July 13 to 15, are UB40, Stereo MCs, Deacon Blue, Jimmy Cliff, Zucchero, Marc Cohn and Squeeze.
They join already announced Saturday night headliner Alanis Morissette and Pixie Lott.
UB40 will be topping the bill on Friday and long-time festival favourites Squeeze will be closing the party on Sunday night.
Organiser Hugh Phillimore said: “I’m so excited to return with such an amazing mix of brilliant artists.
“It’s rather extraordinary to be back quite so soon and able to work with such an international cast. “It’s a real honour for a musical trainspotter like me.”
Other talent includes Israeli starlet Irit, Memphis Soul five-piece Southern Avenue, Chicago soul sweetheart Mavis Staples, LA Soul Sista PP Arnold, Hawaiian son of Willie Nelson, Lukas Nelson & The Promise of the Real and all the way from Rick Island Illinois comes the remarkable Lissie.
Last year’s festival was due to be the last, but after pressure from the public Mr Phillimore had a chance of heart.
From closer to home Cornbury favourite Amy Macdonald returns. There will be performances from Edinburgh’s Nina Nesbitt, Breaking blues girl Grainne Duffy and hotly tipped Catherine McGrath, who bring their songs from the Emerald Isle.
