The Streets To Headline Metro Weekender

The Streets aka Mike Skinner has been confirmed to headline the Metro Weekender music event taking place over August Bank Holiday.

The award-winning event takes place in Cardiff Coopers Field on Saturday August 25 and London Clapham Common on Sunday August 26.

Now in it's fourth year at Clapham and second year in Cardiff, the festival has seen performances from Babyshambles, Lily Allen, Happy Mondays, Snow Patrol and Tiga in recent years.

Brit Award and Ivor Novello award-winning Mike Skinner released his third album "The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living" last year to great acclaim and this will be his only UK festival appearance in 2007.

More artists will be revealed in the coming weeks, with the second major announcement about headliners being made this Thursday (March 29).

Early bird tickets cost from £25 for Cardiff and from £30 for London and are available from Friday (March 30) at 9am.
