The Wonderstuff, Billy Bragg and The Levellers have been confirmed as the headliners for this year's Beautiful Days - the first acts to be announced for the festival.

It takes place at Escot Park, near Honiton, Devon, from 19-21 August and expands from a two day event into three days of entertainment.

As well as the main stage, big top, little big top, bars, stalls and a children’s arena, there is a brand new area planned this year.

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening there will be performances of ‘Free Born John’ by Rev Hammer, the musical story of John Lilburne, England’s first radical and unsung hero of the English Civil War – as performed by Rev, New Model Army, The Levellers and guest artists.

It is not know what days The Wonderstuff, Billy Bragg and The Levellers will be playing on. Expect many more acts to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Tickets go on sale Monday 4 April. Adult camping tickets are priced at £75, with day tickets costing £25 for the Friday and £30 for Saturday and for Sunday. Child tickets will also be available for days and the weekend.
