The Stranglers

Larmer Tree Festival are pleased to announce The Stranglers will be completing the line-up of headline acts for the 2016 festival, joining Jamie Cullum, Caro Emerald, Calexico and 30 other music acts.

The Stranglers are one of the most successful bands to have originated from the vibrant punk scene in the ‘70s. With hits such as ‘Golden Brown’ and ‘No More Heroes’ the legendary punk rockers guarantee to rock the audience, as they have been doing for so many years.

Tom Odell now announced to headline on Sunday!

‘We’re thrilled to have Tom Odell back at Larmer Tree on our 2016 line-up. He’s gone on to phenomenal success since he was last here, and I know his Sunday night set is going to be something special.’ - James Shepard, Festival Director

Tom Odell is returning to Larmer Tree Festival after a stunning debut performance in 2014. With hit tracks from his platinum album ‘Long Way Down’ and plenty of new material to share with the Larmer Tree audience, the Brit Awards winner will bring the festival to a close with true style.

Even more music confirmed

Some significant new additions have been added to the line-up, promising a huge variety of sounds in the intimate and unique landscape of the festival’s Gardens setting. DJ and Producer Quantic combines the use of multiple instruments with elements of salsa, soul, funk, jazz and bossa nova, all performed by Worcestershire-born Will Holland. Top international reggae collective Easy Star All-Stars have also confirmed an exciting set at Larmer Tree. Renowned for their unique, dub-inspired interpretations of classic albums (including ‘Dub Side of the Moon’ and ‘Easy Star’s Thrillah’) this is a band not to be missed.

Mercury Prize album of the year nominee, Zimbabwean born singer-songwriter Eska also joins the bill, along with Columbian band Sidestepper, Sheffield duo Slow Club and the much anticipated Hot 8 Brass Band. Plus Stevie Parker, based in Bath and performing under the ambient electro pop genre, who has enraptured audiences across the South West with her powerful voice.

The festival will once again be championing some great folk artists this year, including singer-songwriter Johnny Lynch as The Pictish Trail and East-End folk group Stick in the Wheel, who are famed for using the sounds and culture of London life, from birdsong to sirens, in their music.

Also added, Larmer Tree are pleased to confirm returning festival favourite Steve Knightley, Louisiana guitarist Gill Landry and up-and-coming band The Little Unsaid, who will be performing tracks from their hugely successful crowdfunded album ‘Fisher King’.

Keep an eye out for headline announcements across the comedy, theatre and shows, poetry and talks, and family programmes still to come!
