The bands follow in the footsteps of acts like La Roux, who headlined the April leg of the tour this year.


“It’s got that element of old school rock’n’roll about it…like Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis when they used to tour together,” declared Golden SilversGwilym Gold of this year’s line-up. “And everyone’s waiting to find out who’s going to kill it on the night!”

He added: “I hope it’s gonna be quite social. I’ve heard a bit of Local Natives and they’re almost a harmony band, aren’t they? We do a lot of harmonies too, so maybe we should harmonise together?”
