The Levellers to headline Wychwood Music Festival

2009 isn't even out of the way, but Wychwood Music Festival organisers have already announced their first headliner for next summer - The Levellers.

After listening to ticket-holders feedback, bosses have booked the band for a return to the Cheltenham event, headlining the main stage on the Friday (4 June).

Dreadzone are also set to appear at the festival, playing the main stage on the Sunday (6 June), while Ade Edmondson And The Bad Shepherds will play the same stage after packing out the Big Top earlier this year.

Wychwood will also have comedy, cinema and a children’s literature festival as well as welcoming the English National Ballet for the weekend.

Early bird tickets will be available on Monday (24 August) from 10am priced at £95 for an adult weekend pass. Concession tickets are priced at £70, while 10-15 year old weekend passes will be available for £40.

Under 10s go free.

Wychwood Music Festival 2009 will take place at Cheltenham Racecourse from 4-6 June.
