Mungo Jerry had been due to appear on the main stage at the retro festival on Sunday, but a spokesman for the festival said that the band has had to pull out due to unforseen circumstances.

The Christians - whose songs include Harvest For The World, Words and Ideal World - will perform in the Sunday afternoon slot on the main stage instead.

About 20,000 music fans are expected to flock to the music extravaganza today and tomorrow.

Soul II Soul, Level 42 and Heatwave are among the acts performing on the main stage on Saturday, meanwhile on Sunday acts will include Billy Ocean, Blue and Aswad.

The festival runs from midday until 10.30pm on both Saturday and Sunday.
