Noisettes and Patrick Wolf to headline Blissfields Festival 2012

Host of new acts also include Spector, Charli XCX, Lucy Rose and many more

Blissfields Festival have announced that Noisettes and Patrick Wolf are to headline this year's event which is returning in to The Park, Woodmancott on the weekend of 29th June to 1st July.
Having launched its regional talent search, Road To Blissfields, and unveiling its comedy bill two weeks ago, organisers are delighted to be able to unveil the first batch of artists for this summer’s installment.
Noisettes will offer the Saturday night headline crowd some of the biggest pop tracks of the past few years, including ‘Don’t Upset The Rhythm’ and ‘Never Forget You’, while Patrick Wolf has confirmed a special acoustic performance with a grand piano.
Following an appearance on Jools Holland, and tipped across the board as a one to watch in 2012, Spector join Blissfields for a dizzyingly high-paced guitar pop show with a Nick Cave-esque chic. Also championed as a one to watch this year is Charli XCX who brings her gothic glam-pop with a sharp live set of big beats and pouncing vocals.
Having claimed the front cover of The Fly magazine, Lucy Rose is also confirmed for the 2012 event; with Man Like Me, Toddla T, Crazy P (Live) and festival favorites Subgiant and Dub Pistols also set to perform. For the first time ever, Blissfields will welcome a leading tribute act to one of the country’s most loved acts, inviting Fleetwood Bac to perform a Saturday afternoon slot this year, as the festival’s youngest ever booking and Metallica-championed Mini Band.
On Thursday night, the second stage will welcome acts from this spring’s Road To Blissfields competition, where acts across six towns play to win a slot at the summer event. Judges, including festival heads, local music promoters and journalists, as well as Blissfields Facebook fans will pick one band from each heat to perform at the opening night, headlined by Imperial Leisure.
For the first time, Blissfields will open the fan-favorite Hidden Hedge Stage during the day, showcasing live music and DJ’s from paradYse Records, Express FM, Beans On Toast, Turf Records and new music from Blissfields Festival. Last summer, Blissfields launched a new Comedy Stage that proved so popular it’s back in 2012 headlined by Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ warm-up comedian Andrew O’Neil.
In 2012 Blissfields will nod their school cap to the world of sport, offering a dandy revival of the Great British Summertime and a golden age of playground camaraderie and frivolity. With a full program of sports day shenanigans, a school disco and late night ballyhoo, expect your mischievous tutors to be on fine form as they guide you through the most fun you’ll have with your chums all year. Hoorah! Hoorah, indeed!
This year you’ll have the opportunity to represent your House, as well as vote for House Captains, once again giving fans of the festival another way to be a part of the makings of the event. Although Blissfields will not be strict on the dress code, they warn that Hall Monitors may have to be assigned to make sure you are all upholding the Blissfields reputation.
Grab your jolly hockey sticks for the best “last day of term” style fun...
