ORGANISERS of Sherst-onfest, Wiltshire’s new festival, have announced the line-up for their debut event.

The festival, which is due to take place on June 15 and 16, has been a keen talking point in the village, with rumours of Prince Charles and Coldplay possibly attending.

The official line-up has been revealed this week, and includes Dub Mafia – one of the most popular dance acts in Europe – who perform as a seven-piece band blending drum and bass, dubstep and world music into their own unique sound.

This band will be performing on the Friday night along with other emerging local artists in association with BBC Introducing, a scheme that supports unsigned, undiscovered and under the radar musicians.

Saturday afternoon looks to be a mellow occasion, with Neil Muttock’s Malmesbury Acoustic Sessions taking the stage for the afternoon.

Ten acts will be performing in the afternoon, including Mr Muttock’s own band The Home Fires as well as The Yirdbards, Chris Knibbs and Henry Green.

Mr Muttock said: “Malmesbury acoustic sessions go hand in hand with the festival; it should be a nice, chilled out afternoon.

“I’m particularly looking forward to seeing Chloe Foy; she’s amazingly good, especially for her age and experience.

“I’m amazed at the amount of talent that’s come from that small area.

“Picking acts has been a difficult choice but hopefully the right one. I hope this festival is going to be something Sherston embraces.”

The main night of the two-day festival will be Saturday night, with 13-piece soul, funk and ska band The Mighty Soul Destroyers headlining, and ‘the world’s first ukulele super group’ entitled The Rinky Dinks supporting.
