Bands announced for summer festival

WYCHWOOD Festival 2008 at Cheltenham Racecourse takes place from Saturday, May 30 to Monday, June 1.

The final crop of bands has been confirmed: joining the previously announced songstress Kate Rusby are 'indie upstarts' Palladium, The Blockheads featuring Phill Jupitus (who will also be appearing as part of the festivals comedy line-up).

Also appearing will be Simon Emmerson's much-talked about project of collaborations, The Imagined Village which debuted at Womad this summer.

Featuring Wychwood favourite Eliza Carthy and her father Martin Carthy, alongside the likes of Billy Bragg; Sheila Chandra from Transglobal Underground; Andy Gangadeen from The Bays; Francis Hylton; Johnny Kalsi from The Dhol Foundation; Barney Morse Brown; Sheema Mukherjee and Chris Wood, this project is already promising to be a highlight.

Joining The Divine Comedy as a Wychwood headliner are Scottish identical twins The Proclaimers. Having shot to fame in 1987 following an appearance on The Tube, the band's single Letters From America' peaked at number three in the UK singles chart, while album This Is The Story' achieved gold status.

The Wychwood Festival will also feature a wide range of other performers including comedians Terry Saunders; Barry Dodds; Bradford based 'scatologically cerebral' comic Ben Schofield; and finally former stockbroker and now accomplished comic Damion Larkin.
