The annual music event, which has been running since 2008, has been rebranded this year as RFestival 24 and will be held over the weekend of 10–11 August.
The Hoosiers arrived on the UK music scene in 2007 when their debut album, The Trick to Life, which included the top-five singles Goodbye Mr A and Worried About Ray, rose to number one in the charts. Last September the band released a new album, Confidence, with an enhanced version, Overconfidence, released in January.
Two other acts announced so far are Cable Street Collective, with their eclectic mix of upbeat rhythms and Congolese-influenced guitar sounds, as well as the return of festival favourites from the USA, Tragedy, who are extending their UK tour specially for the Reepham event, presenting an “all-metal tribute to the Bee Gees and beyond”.
The weekend event will feature two stages on the festival field on Saturday 10 August, providing music for around nine hours, with a third stage on Sunday 11 August at the Kings Arms in the Market Place providing another five hours of live music.
A limited number of early bird tickets are on sale at £32 per adult. Full-price tickets at £40 per adult will go on sale once the early bird allocation has been sold. Tickets for under 16s accompanied by an adult are just £1 each.
Tickets can be purchased from the festival website.
