Among the names announced are indie-pop singer-songwriter Jerry Williams, who has been busy winning legions of fans – she was recently BBC Introducing’s artist of the week on Radio 1 and with 6m Spotify streams and rising, her star is definitely on the up.

Southsea-based Kassassin Street are also added – their catchy psych-rock sound has seen their popularity grow beyond the city with sold-out shows in Liverpool, Manchester and Southampton on their first ever national tour last autumn.

They drew a huge crowd last year, and Rhythm of the ’90s with their full-band covers of ’90s dance hits will definitely get punters into the festival spirit.
