Mystery Jets, Professor Green and Tinchy Stryder are amongst the acts booked to play the new The First Days Of Freedom festival in Kent.

Billed as ‘the ultimate party for leavers’, the event will take place July 15-17 on the weekend following the end of school, college and university exams in the UK. The festival’s line-up was chosen with the help of 364 students, who were sourced by the promoters from the festival’s Facebook page.

A host of unsigned acts will also be joining the bill, which includes established acts Los Campesinos!, Ms Dynamite and The King Blues. The festival will take place in Port Lympne in Hythe.
