Noisettes will be the Saturday night headliners with an impressive selection of pop tracks including “Don’t Upset The Rhythm” and “Never Forget You”, while Patrick Wolf has confirmed a special acoustic performance with a grand piano – certainly destined to be one of the most iconic moments in the festival’s history.
Following an appearance on Jools Holland, and tipped across the board as a one to watch in 2012, Spector join Blissfields for a guitar pop show with a Nick Cave-esque chic. Also championed as one-to-watch by MTV, NME and Pitchfork, Charli XCX will bring her gothic glam-pop to Blissfields, with a sharp live set of big beats and pouncing vocals. Recent The Fly magazine covergirl Lucy Rose, Man Like Me, Toddla T, Crazy P, Subgiant and Dub Pistols are also set to perform.
On Thursday night, the second stage will welcome acts from this spring’s Road To Blissfields competition, where acts across six towns play to win a slot at the summer event. Judges, including festival heads, local music promoters and journalists, as well as Blissfields Facebook fans will pick one band from each heat to perform at the opening night, headlined by Imperial Leisure.
For the first time ever, Blissfields will also welcome a leading tribute act to one of the country’s most loved acts, inviting Fleetwood Bac to perform a Saturday afternoon slot this year, as the festival’s youngest ever booking and Metallica-championed Mini Band, along with many more acts still to announce.
