Get set for a wild weekend in Norwich as the line-up for a brand new music festival has been announced.
Wild Paths will take place across Norwich from Friday October 18 to Sunday October 20 and will showcase a mix of emerging and established artists.
A buzz has been building in the city over the last few weeks with the festival logo appearing on the social media accounts of city businesses and local musicians.
The festival will take place at venues across the city, including the Waterfront and Norwich Arts Centre, which will also host a festival warm-up party on Thursday October 17.
