'We have well-known acts every night and it is going to be fantastic to have these acts performing to a packed Tuesday Market Place.'
Carolyn Wright, chairman of the festival commitee, added: 'The festival will be wonderful for everybody and I believe the atmosphere I witness every year simply states Festival Too is here to stay.
'We will continue to steer Festival Too in the only direction we know how - to the very heart of thousands of people who enjoy Festival Too.
'For they know they are arriving to enjoy the most exciting headline acts, high-calibre tribute bands, local aspiring bands and some quirky acts.'
Admission to all the gigs is free with sponsorship from local businesses helping to cover the cost of staging the event.
Mr Taylor added: 'Without our big sponsors like the borough council and others this event would not happen every year.
'We also have the bucket donations and we say if people feel like they have had a good time to put their hands into their pocket and donate so we can keep putting on this festival.'
Festival Too started in 1985 with the aim of providing free entertainment to the people and visitors of West Norfolk and is now one of Europe's biggest free festivals.
