Happy Mondays have been added as one of the headliners to this year’s Camp Bestival.

The Manchester band, who recently reformed with their original line-up, will play on the final night of the three-day bash on July 29 at Lulworth Castle in Dorset.

Frontman Shaun Ryder said:

Me and the band are mega-excited to be playing at Camp Bestival. We have heard the crowd are amazing and we will definitely put on a great show.

They join previously announced headliner Hot Chip, who play on the festival’s opening night (July 27).

Dodgy, Little Roy and The 2 Bears, Redlight, Josh Kumra, Ryan Keen and Jenny O have also been added to the bill. For more information head to Campbestival.net

Happy Mondays are due to play 11 dates including a homecoming show at Manchester Evening News Arena, with support coming from Inspiral Carpets in May.
