Fans will be turning out in force as three of the biggest acts of the 1980s head for Holkham this weekend.
The decade that brought us the Falklands War, the miner's strike and the first-ever episode of Eastenders, enjoyed a diverse pop scene. Some of the era's best-loved bands have endured to this day.
Since their funky bass sound burst onto ths scene in the early '80s, Level 42 have had 18 Top 40 singles, including Lessons in Love, Something About You, Leaving Me Now, Running in the Family, and Hot Water. They have also sold more than 30m albums.
Founder member and bass player Mark King, who gave the band its distinctive sound, said: 'I am thrilled to be bringing Level 42 back to Norfolk this summer.
'I promise we'll play as many of the hits as we can jam in, so all you have to do is come on down and enjoy the day with your family, and I am forecasting sunshine.'
