Rhythm Festival announces lineup

Seth Lakeman, Alabama 3, John Mayall and The Levellers are set to headline this year's Rhythm Festival, which takes place at Twinwood Arena, Bedford, from 3-5 August.

The Levellers and Hothouse Flowers headline Friday's proceedings, before things get into full flow on Saturday with a longer day of music featuring  Joe Bonamassa, Dr. John, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, Seth Lakeman and Prince Buster with Delroy Williams & The Junction Band.

Closing the festival on Sunday are Alabama 3, John Mayall & The Blues Breakers and Ike Turner & The Kings of Rhythm.

Other bands playing include 3 Daft Monkeys, The Yardbirds, Terry Reid, Chicken Shack and The Men They Couldn't Hang.

The small, family friendly event is aimed at people who enjoy the festivals, just without the expensive food, dodgy loos and changeable line-ups according to who’s 'hot'. An enlarged kid’s field this year looks set to entertain the small ones, including mini Olympics, circus workshops, entertainers and dodgems, while the adults enjoy the music and the bar.

Tickets are on sale now, priced £89 for the weekend or £69 for 12-17 year olds (one child free with every adult ticket holder). Additional Children cost £25 each.

Camping is £20 extra per tent, £30 for a campervan or caravan. Day tickets are also available at £35 for Friday or £45 for Saturday or Sunday.
