Gloworm Festival line-up announced


The full line-up of acts playing the main stage at the brand new, family friendly Gloworm Festival at Clumber Park has now been announced.  Taking place on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 August, the event looks set to attract over 20,000 people in its first year.

On Saturday, headlining on the main stage, which is sponsored by IKEA, is children’s television favourite double act ‘Dick and Dom’, who will be lighting up the stage with an upbeat DJ set that’ll get grandparents, parents and children dancing along.

Whilst on Sunday, the headline spot will be alternative rock band, Toploader, who will best be remembered for their most famous song ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ which became a global hit for the band.

Both headliners will be performing their sets at 6.00 pm on their respective nights.

Seas of Mirth, The Red Faces and Sea Monster Eyes are just some of the acts who will be getting the crowd into the swing of things before the headline act on Saturday.

Supporting Toploader on the second day of the event will be acts such as Whisky Stain, Unknown Era and Thrasonic, along with a range of other great local acts.

To find out all about the Gloworm Festival and the other activities taking place over the weekend for all the family to get involved in, head to www.glowormfestival.co.uk or search for ‘Gloworm Festival’ on Facebook.
