Hot on the heels of news that Abba are set to reform, one of the band's best-known tribute acts is set to headline a music festival in aid of East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).
The Bjorn Again festival at Huntingdon Racecourse will take the crowd back in time to some of the best-known pop music from the last 50 years on Saturday, August 25.
Headlining will be Bjorn Again, the critically-acclaimed group who have performed Abba's greatest hits in over 100 countries and are endorsed by Abba themselves.
Supreme Queen, regarded by many as the UK's leading Queen tribute act, The Rolling Stones Now and The 2FBS Band, who have been raising roofs across East Anglia with their classic rock tunes for over 10 years now, will also take the stage.
Lesa Barker, EACH head of regional fundraising, said: 'We're so excited to have such a stellar line-up taking us back in time. All these bands really look, sound and move like the real rock stars – you have to see it to believe it.
'With the wonderful Huntingdon Racecourse hosting this event, we have a safe and secure site to cater for the whole family. This really promises to be a day to remember.'
EACH cares for more than 360 children and young people with life-threatening conditions, and supports over 450 family members. It has three hospices across East Anglia.

One of the events staff at Milton have run annually over the last three years is EACHfest – effectively a mini festival to provide young people EACH cares for with a social opportunity they might not otherwise be able to access and experience.
The charity is now rolling out this concept on a broader scale for its supporters and the wider community.
The fun-packed day at Huntingdon Racecourse will feature not only music, but also children's stalls, inflatables and face painting. Independent traders will provide a range of food and drinks outside. There will be an indoor restaurant and bar, too.
Tickets for adults start from £25 and for children from £14 (free for under 4s). Parking is free, with disabled parking close to the venue entrance.
