A new music and creative arts festival for over 18s has revealed its Friday evening headliner as a critically acclaimed group.

Public Service Broadcasting will lead the opening night of the three-day event at Beal Farm, for Lindisfarne Festival this September 4 - 6.

Adamski has also been added to the Saturday line-up alongside house music DJ Glen Horsborough and local Berwick act, Roy’s Iron DNA.

North East band The Baghdaddies will also be playing on the Friday evening.

The festival will showcase a range of internationally renowned artists, as well as a selection of up and coming acts and North East talent.

Headliners will also include Reverend and The Makers, Craig Charles, DJ Yoda, Smoove and Turrell and The Skints.

Conleth Maenpaa, Owner of Nokomis and Bor Events and Founder of Lindisfarne Festival said: “We are delighted to add the critically acclaimed Public Service Broadcasting to our line-up alongside our other great acts.

“With a number of sell out shows across the UK including one in Newcastle, and after receiving rave reviews at the BBC 6 Music Festival 2015, it’s great to be able to give their fans an opportunity to see them again in the North East.

“We feel they will add something really unique to the festival with their spell-binding live AV transmissions and the way they powerfully convey lessons of the past through the music of the future.

“They have a really distinctive sound, weaving samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material around live drums, guitar, banjo and electronics.”
