Festival Crowd Header

The Saturday main support for the 2016 LeeStock Music Festival have been announced as top Pop Rock act The Hoosiers.

The festival, which started in 2007 and is now in its 9th year, has so far raised almost £70,000 for the Willow Foundation, a charity who provide special days to seriously ill young adults. The festival is named and run in the memory of Lee Dunford, who was helped by the charity, and is held in the grounds of a National Trust Tudor Hall in Suffolk, Melford Hall.

Previous headliners at the festival, which is held at the end of May, have included Scouting For Girls, Toploader, the Lightning Seeds and Wheatus. This year's headliners, previously announced as The Feeling, are now joined by The Hoosiers who found success in 2007 when their debut album "The Trick of Life" reached number 1 in the charts and sold 2 x Platinum. The album featured 3 top 40 singles, "Worried About Ray", "Goodbye Mr A" and "Cops and Robbers" and was followed up by the hit album "The Illusion of Safety" which reached number 10 in the album chart.

The festival, held on 28th and 29th May features a beer festival, family area, on-site camping and features the backdrop of a beautiful Tudor Hall. Tickets are available online for £30 for the weekend (plus booking fee) and full information can be found at the festival's website www.leestock.org
