The Cribs and Gabrielle Aplin to top Leopallooza bill

First acts announced for the Cornish Festival

Indie trio The Cribs and singer-songwriter Gabrielle Aplin will headline Cornwall’s Leopallooza festival this summer.

Also confirmed for the three day festival is Amber Run, Seafret, Pulled Apart By Horses, The Japanese House and Samm Henshaw, with the full lineup, including the third headliner, being announced in the coming weeks.

The award-winning north Cornwall festival, now in its eleventh year, has a reputation as an incubator for emerging talent, with a strong history of booking artists just before they break into the mainstream.

“This is a festival built by festival lovers. We started it in 2006, and the same group of friends run it to this day. We work extremely hard to keep the independent ethos throughout, with everything people see, hear, drink and eat handpicked by us. Once again the team has put together a great lineup of both established and breaking artists, with the 11th Leopallooza shaping up to be one of the biggest yet.”
Festival co-founder Sam Dunnett 

The festival will feature seven stages, including two new additions: the Punkomedy stand-up comedy stage, and a platform for the county’s local musical talent supported by BBC Music Introducing in Cornwall.

Families and those with young children are catered for with a dedicated kids' area and crèche. The 20 food vendors at the festival will serve a wide variety of menus suitable for all tastes and price ranges.

Friday night headliners The Cribs will play their seminal Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs, Whatever album in full, as a celebration of its 10th anniversary.

Twins Gary and Ryan Jarman formed the band in 2002, along with younger brother Ross. Since then, The Cribs have released six albums, three of which entered the top ten of the UK charts, and picked up the ‘outstanding contribution to music’ award at the 2013 NME Awards.

The final night of the festival will be headlined by Gabrielle Aplin, who first shot to fame after the release of her debut album in 2013, featuring an unforgettable cover of The Power of Love, which reached number one in the UK chart. Aplin has toured heavily in Europe, Japan, Australia and the USA, racking up a further three number one singles worldwide.
