Line-up revealed for Hunstanton’s Lifestyles Festival

Organisers of Hunstanton's Lifestyles Festival today announced the line-up for this year's event.

Headline acts include, Tin Roots, an eclectic six-piece band whose infectious stage energy and catchy melodies have quickly secured them slots at Glastonbury, Bestival, Green Man and Secret Garden Party, and Aliceband, headed up by female vocalist Alice Walker, whose style is hard to describe, but whose thought-provoking lyrics will no doubt put a smile on the faces of fun-loving festival goers.

Under the Influence, a four-piece rap/rock band from King's Lynn, are taking time out from their busy schedule, promoting their new single 'Anywhere but home', to perform on the main stage at Lifestyles. The band, whose catchy chorus lines are proving hugely popular with audiences across the country, are renowned for their live performances and are a must-see at this year's festival.

Also confirmed are five-piece melodic punk rock band Excellent Adventure, indie rock band Ringo Pacino, Ed Ache and Officer Gotcha.

Event organiser Tony Devenish, sports development officer with West Norfolk council, said: 'We're still finalising the music line-up, but we're absolutely delighted that we've managed to secure some of the best rising talent around at the moment.

'Some of our bands are back by popular demand, but as always Lifestyles Festival is about bringing to west Norfolk emerging new bands and new music from across the country as well as giving great local acts a chance to perform.

'We've still got a few more acts to confirm and we'll announce these on Twitter and Facebook over the next few weeks'.
