Frank Turner and Babylon Circus complete Larmer Tree Festival line-up!

14th-18th July 2010 – Larmer Tree Gardens, Wiltshire/Dorset border

Fast rising, folk/punk artist Frank Turner and French ska outfit Babylon Circus are the final show-stopping acts to be added to the 20th anniversary Larmer Tree Festival line-up!

After touring relentlessly around the globe, Frank Turner will be making a stop at the Victorian Larmer Tree Gardens on Thursday 15th July. Known for his witty, observational and often heartfelt lyrics, Frank will make a very special appearance before Robert Cray on the festival’s main stage. After supporting the likes of Biffy Clyro, The Offspring and The Gaslight Anthem, Frank embarked upon his own sold-out tour of the UK. He is showing no signs of slowing down and will this year be taking his passionate live show across the world, with dates confirmed as far away as Australia, America, China and Hong Kong.

French ten-piece Babylon Circus have also just been confirmed to perform at this year’s Larmer Tree Festival, bringing the main stage to a close on Saturday 17th July. Musical menagerie Babylon Circus bring their infectious fusion of ska, reggae, punk, jazz and swing to the festival, further signifying the diverse variety of acts that Larmer Tree offer above any other summer music festival.

With these final additions to the festival, Larmer Tree is looking to celebrate its 20th anniversary with style. Founder and co-director James Shepard says: “We were extremely keen to get Frank on the bill. After his recent sell out tour of the country, we’re so happy one the UK’s hardest working musicians has chosen to spend part of his summer with us! The addition of Babylon Circus once again shows the incredible range of acts we programme – it’s going to be an unforgettable festival!”
