The third annual Wychwood Music Festival has been confirmed to take place in the surrounds of Cheltenham Racecourse on June 1-3.

The first two headliners announced are NYC group Fun Lovin Criminals and festival veterans The Levellers.

Wychwood Music Festival is an independent festival that seamlessly mixes pop with folk, jazz with indie with world music and chillout.

The FLC will play the Friday, with other acts on the same day including Robyn Hitchcock and the Venus 3 – which consists of R.E.M.’s Peter Buck, Young Fresh Fellows front man Scott McCaughey and Ministry’s Bill Rieflin.

Saturday’s line-up will see performances by Anoushka Shankar, virtuoso Indian musician and daughter of the legendary Ravi Shankar and Poptones-signed, Swedish folk hero Tobias Fröberg.

Wychwood’s Sunday’s line-up is also promising to be a wonderfully diverse mix, with BBC 3 Award for World Musoc nominated, Balkan Beat Box, Zion Train and Ba Cissoko already confirmed

Friends of the Earth, are the festival’s partner and over the weekend will be encouraging festival goers to get involved with The Big Ask – the FOE’s campaign on climate change.

The Big Ask is calling on the UK Government to introduce a climate change law which commits the UK to cutting its carbon dioxide emissions by at least three percent a year.

Wychwood Music Festival has already secured no less than five UK Festival Awards nominations in just two years, including Best Family Festival in two consecutive years and Best Grassroots Festival.

Weekend tickets are currently priced at £95 for adults and £75 concession (12-18, unwaged, disabled, NUS).
