A Northumberland music festival has announced the first wave of acts for its summer event.

Lindisfarne Festival 2017 is gearing up to be an even bigger and better showcase of music, comedy, culture and creative arts this year, and it has announced The Fratellis as its first main stage headliner.

The Scottish trio, who recently celebrated the tenth anniversary of their debut album Costello Music with a sell-out UK tour, will be headlining the Saturday night bill at the over 18s’ festival, which takes place from August 31 to September 3.

A regularly short-listed finalist at the UK Festival Awards, this year’s event will be held once again at Beal Farm n an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty overlooking Holy Island.

The three-day camping festival, which promises its strongest line up to date, will also play host to leading DJs, including Norman Jay MBE and Fun Lovin’ Criminals frontman Huey Morgan.

Other acts include UK festival favourites Showhawk Duo, Beans on Toast, The Lancashire Hotpots, Too Many T’s, The Turbans, Nubiyan Twist and Bryde.

Advance tickets for the 3,000 capacity festival are priced at £89 for three nights from Thursday to Sunday, £79 for Friday to Sunday, or £55 for Saturday only, with camping, from www.lindisfarnefestival.com
