Ed Harcourt, Savages and Dark Dark Horse for Summer Sundae Weekender

Final acts for the event announced today

Summer Sundae Weekender have announced the final wave of artists on 2012’s line up.

Mercury nominated Ed Harcourt is the final act to join the Drowned in Sound bill. Having released five studio albums to date, the singer-songwriter has rightfully gained the reputation for being the British answer to Jeff Buckley.

Driven by their desire to create a sound that is indestructible and musically solid, all girl four piece Savages invoke the radical spirit of the great post punk bands to achieve this. You can catch them on Saturday 18th August at the Crocodile’s Lagoon indoors at De Montfort Hall.

Unique electronic project Dark Dark Horse are also announced as winners of the local competition for an East Midlands band to open the Summer Sundae Main Stage this year. The Leicestershire three-piece were selected and announced live on air by BBC Radio DJ Dean Jackson during his show ‘The Beat’. Dean Jackson will also be presenting a BBC Introducing Stage at this year’s festival on Saturday 18th August at The Watering Hole, featuring the rising star Jake Bugg and talented youngster Mahalia.

In addition to Dean Jackson from BBC’s The Beat the other MCs for Summer Sundae Weekender will include: BBC6 Music’s Chris Hawkins, BBC Radio Leicester’s Jonathan Lampon & Ed Stagg and Leicestershire singer-songwriters Kevin Hewick and Stevie Jones, with more to be added across the weekend.

There are a limited number of Day, Weekend and Camping tickets still available. Due to planned building work at Regents College, all camping for Summer Sundae 2012 will be on Victoria Park. There will be family and quit(er) areas at this campsite.

Summer Sundae Weekender -  17th, 18th & 19th August 2012 - De Montfort Hall, Leicester
