New Reading festival to launch

Post by Baz on Tue Dec 02, 2008 4:39 am



A new festival, Heavenly Planet, is set to launch in Reading next July, with The Wonder Stuff, Fence Collective and The Bays among the acts confirmed to appear at the inaugural bash.

The event will take place on July 10-12 in fully-covered arenas beside the river Thames in the city, with a capacity of 10,000. Camping space will be available.

Facilities on site will include a swimming pool and a covered food court.

Festival chief Melvyn Benn of Festival Republic told NME.COM the Heavenly Planet would have a "world music-ish" vibe.

He added, "It'll be chilled out we're trying to create a festival of optimism and unity. Now that's needed more than ever with the gloomy news with the recession and what's going on in the world. We need to remind ourselves that the world's a great place!"

The line-up of the Heavenly Planet festival 2009 so far is:

Drummers of Burundi
Sharon Shannon Big Band
Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain
The Wonder Stuff
Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba
The Oysterband Ceilidh Set

Oysters must be in fashion. 2 of them have them in their name.
