The Lightning Seeds To Close Headstock Festival

The Lightning Seeds will close the Main Stage on the Sunday of 2011's Headstock Festival, while The Herbaliser Band also join the bill in a UK exclusive.

The non-profit, volunteer and musician led Headstock takes place at the Newstead and Annesley Country Park, near Nottingham, on September 9- 11th 2011.

The Lightning Seeds who enjoyed a string of hits including "Pure", "The Life of Riley", "Lucky You" and the number 1 "Three Lions" join Echo & the Bunnymen who headline on Saturday.

The Herbaliser Band - one of the UK's most sought after festival acts - will be giving a rare full band performance and will be joining The Lightning Seeds on the Main Stage on Sunday 11th.

The Lightning Seeds and The Herbaliser Band join a line up of over 100 acts, spread across 5 stages and dance arenas. Already confirmed are Craig Charles, Nick Harper, Tunng, African Head Charge, Aistaguca, Seas of Mirth, Royal Gala, 25 Past The Skank, Alberteen, The Halluminati, C.W. Stoneking, High Llamas, Tilted Smile plus DiY & Smokescreen and Muzika! soundsystems. There are more acts yet to be announced including an entire stage of up-and-coming regional talent.

Headstock Festival was set up in 2010 by Newstead Enterprise. Headstock is part of a bigger endeavour to create a sustainable future for the village, which suffered severe deprivation after the coal mine closed in 1987. Newstead's plight was recognised by the BBC and the Big Lottery Fund, who joined forces on the Village SOS project in a bid to start a rural regeneration. The BBC is filming the journey of the villages, including the regeneration of Newstead, for a primetime
BBC One show to be broadcast this August.

Last year's Headstock was runner up for Best New Festival at the UK Festival Awards and received rave reviews from media and festival attendees. This year's Headstock grows from a one-day event to two days and three nights.
