The Levellers to headline Wizard Festival

The Levellers will join The Charlatans as headliners for this year's Wizard Festival.

The group, who have been secured on a Scottish festival exclusive, will top the bill on the Friday (28 August).

They will have support from 80’s pop ska group The Beat and The Travelling Band joining Buzzcocks, who were announced previously.

Roy Thain, Wizard festival organiser said of the latest additions to the bill: “The fact that we have secured a band like The Levellers at Wizard as a Scottish festival exclusive performance says a lot about the status of the acts that we are now attracting to perform at the festival.  

“We want to provide North east music fans with the opportunity to see an exciting mix of music at Wizard reflecting a “something for everyone” policy. We believe that the acts we have announced so far add up to a real treat for music lovers and we intend to keep working hard on the bill to provide fans with three great stages of live music."

Wizard Festival 2009 will take place at New Deer, Peterhead from 28-29 August.

Tickets are on sale now priced at £70 for the weekend.

The festival will have three stages of music with emerging acts housed in an acoustic tipi. Onsite there will be food stalls, shopping area, a fairground, plenty of campervan space and, so organisers promise, loads of portaloos.
