WELSH rock band Kids In Glass Houses will headline Butserfest 2012.
The popular alcohol and drug-free festival, held in Butser, returns for its sixth year with Lower Than Atlantis, Yashin, Futures, Canterbury, Don Broco, Mallory Knox and Burn the Fleet also confirmed to play.
‘Kids In Glass Houses have been high on Butserfest fans’ lists as a favourite to headline the festival for a few years,’ said Lucy Soal, Butserfest band co-ordinator.
‘We’re really happy to have them as our headline act.’
Opening on the main stage will be England Road, Midday Committee and Spartan, chosen from the Live & Unsigned regional and area finals followed by Contraband, winners of the rock category at the national final at the O2 London in July.
The September 15 event sees the introduction of the Small Town and Friends Stage, supported by the Small Town Records label, Southampton Solent University, Atticus Clothing and Blackstar Amps.
Lucky fans will also have the chance to see six artists and bands playing exclusive backstage sets to a tiny audience. Go to facebook.com/butserfest to find out more.
The event is run by East Hampshire District Council. Tickets are available for £20 in advance and £25 on the door. To avoid a booking fee, buy tickets from Petersfield Town Council, Horndean Parish Council or Queen Elizabeth Country Park. See butserfest.co.uk
