Summer Sundae Weekender 2011 is delighted to announce the second wave of additions to this year’s line-up, having previously unveiled headliners the Maccabees, the legendary Graham Coxon and an array of other exciting artists to what will be an unmissable date in the summer music calendar.

The first new act to be revealed is London rapper Example who stormed the Top Ten with hits such as ‘Won’t go Quietly’ and ‘Kickstart’. We also have the ever charming and always poetic, Mercury nominated Manchester trio I am Kloot, the chart-topping pop heartthrobs McFly, Brit-pop favourites Reef and the notorious all female Japanese pop-punk outfit Shonen Knife, who can lay claim to being one of Kurt Cobain’s most revered bands. They will be accompanied by a whole host of other emerging and established names including delicate folk songstress Beth Jeans Houghton, SXSW favourites GIVERS and political activists The Agitator for what is guaranteed to be another eclectic and exciting weekender in Summer Sundae’s exulted history.

Since its inauguration in 2001 Summer Sundae Weekender has rapidly expanded to a 3 day, 6-stage festival, with over a hundred acts. With a holistic approach to planning it has consciously retained the same boutique/bijou atmosphere and laid back cadence as the 1 day, 2 stage event 9 years ago. 2010 saw the festival celebrate its 10th year and what a year it was, with sell-out dates and the finest and most eclectic of line-ups being enjoyed by more than 6,000 people.

Year on year Summer Sundae Weekender has delivered a broad spectrum of emerging and established artists from the field of music and comedy. Last years headliners included arguably the ‘Band of the Year’ Mumford & Sons, chart-topper Tinchy Stryder and rambunctious blues-god Seasick Steve. Past headliners have included Belle and Sebastian, Patti Smith, The Charlatans and Elbow. Summer Sundae also always has its finger firmly on the pulse of what’s fresh, new and earmarked. In years gone by Amy Winehouse, Eliza Doolittle, Mr. Hudson, Kate Nash, Jamie T, Hot Chip, Editors and Kasabian have all appeared on the Summer Sundae Weekender stage, just on the cusp of their mainstream success.

As well as musical offerings, there is a multitude of other delights to entice visitors of all ages including a comedy and cabaret tent, silent disco, art installations and workshops. To celebrate the festival’s 11th outing, Summer Sundae Weekender will undoubtedly raise the bar once again, delivering the level of diversity and intimacy in performances that its patrons have come to expect. The weekend of the 12th – 14th of August will undoubtedly emerge as the finest weekend of the summer!
