Blissfields Festival have announced details of it’s 2012 theme, as well as even more acts added to it’s 2012 bill. Having already confirmed The Noisettes, Patrick Wolf (playing a very special grand piano acoustic performance), Guillemots, Toddla T, and a wealth of acclaimed emerging talent, including Spector, Clock Opera, Theme Park, Toy, and Charli XCX  Blissfields next wave of acts are:
 
Bastille,King Charles, Emily and the Woods, Tropics,Me, Jake Bugg, Torches, Marcus Aureliusness, K1r3y,with Road To Blissfields winners Bigtopp and Kamikaze Test Pilots all joining the event for it’s 12th year.
 
Among the new additions are beautiful songsmiths Bastille - fronted by Dan Smith who won 1st place in the 2012 International Songwriting Competition, as voted for by musicians such as Tom Waits, Jeff Beck and Robert Smith, they’ve recently performed at The Great Escape festival to capacity crowds.
 
The dandy king of psych-pop King Charles returns to Blissfields, following the recent release of his critically acclaimed top 40 album Loveblood and a sold out UK tour.
 
Dubbed a “one to watch” by MSN in their 2012 poll, Australia’s Me have played live to over 50,000 people since landing in the UK, honing their live show into a stadium-ready performance comparable to Muse, Queen or Green Day.
 
The haunting Emily And The Woods also return to Blissfields, with festival favorites and BBC championed Jake Bugg, and described by the Guardian as “Caribou-tiful”, Tropics complete this  announcement.
 
Blissfields Festival theme for 2012 is  “Game For It”
 
In 2012, Blissfields 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.
 
The team are time-travelling to Blissfields to bring some of the very best Old Skool 80s inspired Sports Day classics, all with some very alternative twists! Undertake some serious bonding whilst getting in the sack race, flirt your way to victory in the Egg & Spooning, find your feet in the 7-legged challenge and propel yourself into the Space Hopper Long-Jump. Show you’ve got the moves in the Hipster Swingathon, de-feet your opponent in the Sock WrestlingRing and pop yourself silly in the Balloon Fencing Championships!
 
Exclusively for 2012, you’ll also take on some truly British feats just make sure you dress up for the Dangerous Dressage in the festival's very own Showjumping Ring, and don’t forget to take time for the incredibly messy Royal Tea!
 
The grand finale of Blissfields Sports Day will see all four school houses enter the gladiatorial ring of the main arena to fight it out in the Greatest of all British Challenges: The Tug of War!

Blissfields 2013 review: Bastille, Mystery Jets and a large portion of punching above its weight
It's hard to quantify what makes some festivals work, while others fail to deliver, but having gone to Blissfields for the first time we can say, for certain, that it falls squarely into the former category.
