A band from Dereham has secured a main stage slot at this year's Wildfire Festival, a music festival aiming to showcase the new talent.

Bad Touch will perform alongside a range of other young groups from the UK, including The Treatment from Cambridge and Dirty Thrills from London. A number of international bands are also part of the line-up.

Bad Touch has been touring the UK since 2014 and recently completed their second album titled Truth Be Told.

Director of the festival, Dave Ritchie, said: 'We all love the classics from the past but the time has come to look forward and invest in the next generation of talent. At Wildfire this year you can see a who's who of the new wave of British classic rock in one place.'

The festival takes place between June 23 and 25 and tickets are £70. More information is on the festival website.
