Today one of Britain’s biggest up and coming indie pop bands, Years & Years, have been confirmed as headliners for Lydiard Park's Mfor Festival this summer.
UK indie-pop trio Years & Years have been announced as the headliners for a new Swindon music festival, due to take place Saturday 27 July at Lydiard Park.
Mfor founder and organiser, Graham Stobbs, said: “I’m thrilled to be able to confirm the headline act and names of other acts will follow. It’s taken a lot of work behind the scenes to get the line-up ready for this inaugural event – and we hope families from Swindon, Wiltshire and surrounding counties will support us.
“This event is about community, charity and music. We hope local people will travel to one of the South West’s most beautiful country parks to enjoy up to ten hours of entertainment and music.”
The festival, which was due to originally take place last year, has been set up by Graham Stobbs to raise money for veteran charity Walking With The Wounded and other local projects. The festival's inaugural event will also host the Wiltshire-based Red Devils, the official parachute display team of the British Army, who will be parachuting in.
