Wychwood Festival have revealed that Buzzcocks will be the Friday night headliner. Joining them will be Jesus Jones, Smoove & Turrell and Professor Elemental with the Smashing Blouse team adding Zak Abel, Let's Eat Grandma, IDER, Girli and Flamingods to the eclectic line-up.

Buzzcocks, one of the most important and influential bands in the world will be headlining Wychwood Festival's main stage on Friday night. Fresh off the back of their incredibly successful 40th anniversary tour last year, the Bolton four piece will wow the crowds with their timeless back catalogue of hits, including classics such as 'Ever Fallen In Love' and 'Orgasm Addict'.

Joining them will be pop sensation Zak Abel, who shot to fame after his collaboration with Gorgon City. Debut album 'Only When We're Naked' is set to drop in March, and will surely see Zak as one of the most sought after recording artists of 2017. Also confirmed are 80's alternative rock legends Jesus Jones, who'll be bringing timeless classics such as 'International Bright Young Thing' to the eager Wychwood revellers.

Northern Soul maestros Smoove & Turrell will also be making an appearance on the main stage alongside Professor Elemental. The Smashing Blouse team will be bringing Let's Eat Grandma, Flamingods, IDER and Girli, whilst the Hobgoblin stage have confirmed Indigo Rose, Cherokii, Curse Of Lono and SKata Tones, all of which will be joining the already announced OMD, Levellers, Billy Bragg, Beans On Toast, Trudy and the Romance and Laurel, with more still to come.

Over the past 12 years Wychwood Festival has cemented itself as one of the country's favourite family friendly weekends. Welcoming all generations, the festival curates a packed programme year on year with timeless greats, upcoming music, literature, comedy, children's entertainment, food and drink and more.
