NEW NAMES have been confirmed for this year’s Upton-upon-Severn Sunshine Festival.

The Observer which is in partnership with the event’s organisers, has also declared the first winner of our fortnightly ticket giveaway.

Dozens of acts are already scheduled to perform across three stages over the weekend from August 22 to 24.

Liverpool band The Farm are among the latest performers to be booked. Their debut album Spartacus reached the top of the UK album chart in March 1991 and their well-known hit ‘All together now’ was produced by Madness member Graham McPherson aka Suggs.

Kenny Thomas is another act confirmed for the event. His first album Voices went platinum in its first week and went on to make double platinum sales in the UK seeing four hit singles released; ‘Outstanding’, ‘Thinking about your love’, ‘Best of you’ and ‘Tender love’.

There will also be charity stalls, a fairground and a fireworks display during the weekend.
