Wiltshire’s annual summer music festival is back and bigger than ever with good food and a great lineup.

Elcot Fest, which takes place every year in Marlborough, will return for 2024 on June 1 and is set to take over Marlborough Town Football Club with indie, rock, pop and dance tunes.

The family-friendly festival runs from midday until 11.30pm and is free to all under 13s, with tickets priced at £5 for 13-18 year olds and £15 for over 18s.

"This year is our third and each year we are getting better and learning more," said organiser Lee Matthews.

"We have something for everyone musically this year. Covers, originals, soul, rock, 60s, 70s, 80s and a 90s dance anthems belter of a headliner!

"This is a festival purely to help fund the football club, in order to keep this facility alive and well and available to our community.

"I'd like to mention Kim Francis and Heidi Brinkworth for all of their hard work that has gone into this."

The team behind the festival have exclusively revealed the official line-up for this year to the Gazette and Herald -  and you’re not going to want to miss it.
