New UK festival announced

GLC line-up for new Somerset bash

The line-up for the first ever Foundation Festival has been announced, with Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Goldie Lookin Chain, Kosheen and Coldcut heading the bill.

Taking place over September 1-3, some major headline acts are still to be announced for the Somerset festival.

The organisers of Foundation hope that the event will also promote charitable organisations like Oxfam, War Child and Shelter.

Organiser Oliver Gurney said: “We felt it was our own personal responsibility to support good causes in order to bring about change for future generations, and give people a damn good time doing it.”

As well as the six live stages and capacity of 20,000, the festival will feature circus and burlesque acts and a dance tent.
