NINETIES indie stars The Lightning Seeds are the latest big-name act to be added to the bill for Wickham Festival.

The Liverpool band, who have had 12 top-20 hits in the UK, will join James Blunt, Bellowhead and Steve Earle and the Dukes at this summer’s event.

The Lightning Seeds will headline on Friday, August 15 alongside the Oyster Band.

Organiser Peter Chegwyn said: ‘We’re delighted to have secured the Lightning Seeds to complete our list of headline acts.

‘They have a string of hits which fans will know and love and they are perfect for the Friday night.

‘Being able to attract artists of this calibre shows just how far this festival has come.

‘Having James Blunt as our major headline act on the Thursday night, has really put Wickham on the map and established this festival as a major event on the south coast calendar.’
