The first acts for this year’s Deepdale Festival have been announced.
The headliners will be the genre-bending India Electric Co, Norfolk Americana outfit Morganway and folk-pop band The Leisure Society.
They are among more than a dozen artists heading to north Norfolk for the September festival, which will be the sixth annual event at Deepdale.
“We are really very excited at how this year’s line-up is shaping up,” said festival director Chris Haydock.
“Whether it’s fantastic acts from further afield, such as India Electric Co, The Leisure Society, Chris Cleverley and Jacob & Drinkwater, or brilliant bands from right here in Norfolk, such as Morganway, Kitewing and the John Ward Trio, among many others, we can’t wait to showcase another weekend of fabulous music.”
The festival – which has a strong folk feel to it – takes place in the surroundings of the organic Deepdale Farm, overlooking Brancaster Staithe harbour. It was voted Norfolk Festival of the Year 2021 in the East Anglian Festival Network poll, and the event always sells out.
This year’s event will run from Thursday, September 21, until Sunday, September 24.
