Oh crikey, this is looking like it’s going to be an event and a half. What’s probably turning into the UK’s biggest americana and country music festival has just announced some more names to its line-up for this year, and some of them are huge, including: sister trio The Staves who toured with First Aid Kit last year; Country Music Hall of Fame inductee and global legend Kris Kristofferson who’ll be playing with the late Merle Haggard’s band The Strangers; and erstwhile New Pornographer Neko Case. You can see the new full line-up below, with more names to be announced.
