Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra are the second headliner to be announced for Guilfest 2012.

Holland and his band will top the bill on the festival’s Friday night (13 July), and will feature special guest vocalists Ruby Turner, Louise Marshall and former Fine Young Cannibals frontman Roland Gift, along with Holland’s ex-Squeeze bandmate Gilson Lavis.

This follows last month’s announcement that Olly Murs will be headlining the event on the Saturday night (14 July), with reggae legend Jimmy Cliff also set to play that day.

Plenty more acts are still to be confirmed for the Guilfest line-up, which will boast over 200 names across eight stages.

Guilfest 2012 takes place at Stoke Park, Guildford on 13-15 July.
