Lynchpin of urban British music Roots Manuva has been confirmed as headliner for Lounge on the Farm.

Roots Manuva, aka Rodney Smith is set to top a Saturday bill chock full of big names including Dub Pistols, Golden Silvers and The Aliens.

On emulating Glastonbury's gander into the realms of hip-hop organiser Matt Gough had this to say: “If Glastonbury can do it then why can’t we? This is the head honcho of UK Hip Hop as far as we’re concerned, and he’s gonna blow the roof off the Cowshed on Saturday night. Can’t wait…”

The Horrors and Edwyn Collins are down to headline the now infamous Cow Shed on the Friday and Saturday nights respectively.

Krafty Kuts, Mr Scruff and Baddies are just three of the other acts hitting the stages at Merton Farm, Canterbury from 10 – 12 July.
