Mark Ronson for Zoo Thousand And Eight

Mark Ronson is among latest acts confirmed for the brand new Zoo Thousand And Eight Festival.

The BRIT-winning DJ and producer will play a full live set at the Kent festival with a headline appearance on Friday’s main stage.

He will be joined by UK rapper Dizzee Rascal at the three-day event, which takes place at the beautiful Port Lympne Wild Animal Park from the 4-6 July.

The bill already features the likes of The Cribs, Funeral For A Friend, Athlete, British Sea Power and The Young Knives with more names to come. Full line up HERE.

Zoo Thousand will be making a donation to the Aspinall Foundation – the registered charity that runs Port Lympne Wild Animal Park – and festival goers will be able to visit the Animal Park for a reduced price, with a capacity for 20,000 music fans.

Festival director Matt Dice said: “I’m delighted to announce that Mark Ronson will be coming to Kent – it is a fantastic coup for us.

“Mark is a world-renowned artist who has enjoyed huge success in this country and will be great headliner for Zoo Thousand.”
