Worcester Editorial 19th May, 2016 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

HELD over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend (May 27 to 29) the 2016 Mello Festival is set to bring back the essence of a big chilled family festival.

With an eclectic mix of indie, folk, jazz and dance, Mello will broadly appeal to music lovers of all ages.

And the Observer has teamed up with festival organisers to offer three lucky winners a pairs of tickets each for the festival.

Set at the iconic Throckmorton Airfield next Spring Bank Holiday the organisers spotted a gap in the Worcestershire market for a large scale festival that champions ‘real’ music.

“We feel that musically Worcestershire lacks a festival that champions ‘real’ music on a large scale, hence the need to create Mello,” said Kev Quaine, promotions co-ordinator

“We’re delighted to be holding it at the iconic Throckmorton Airfield and intend to take into account the historical values it holds when producing the festival.

Saturday headline act The Levellers will be alongside Lemar, The Blockheads, Pentangle, Jethro Tull’s Martin Barre, Slim Chance, Magna Carta, Baby D, N.Trance & Electric Swing Circus for this year’s Mello.

To be in with a chance of winning, answer the following question:

Which band will be headlining Saturday of the 2016 Mello Festival?

a) Slim Chance

b) The Levellers

c) Baby D
