Thom Yorke booked for The Big Chill
Multi-instrumentalist Thom Yorke is one of the headline acts for this year's Big Chill Festival.
The Radiohead frontman and electric guitar player will appear on the Deer Park stage at the festival, which is to be held between August 5th and 8th 2010 at Eastnor Castle in Hertfordshire.
He joins previously-confirmed headliners Massive Attack and MIA on the bill.
Other acts that have now been confirmed for the event include Metronomy, Tom Middleton, Natty and Tinariwen - a group who were formed in a Libyan refugee camp in 1979.
"Tinariwen have been refining their unique fusion of Toureg folk songs with electric guitars ... as they made their way from ... the Sahara to the concert stages of the world," a spokesman for the festival said.
Among the artists who will also play The Big Chill this year are Roots Manuva, Mr Scruff and Plan B.
Meanwhile, Zero 7 will perform a DJ set at the festival.Posted on 13 May 2010 16:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
