The organisers of Keswick Mountain Festival (KMF) have revealed the live music acts that will be performing on the edge of Derwentwater on the weekend of 8-11 June.

Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall has signed up to headline  on Saturday 10 June. Headlining on the Friday night will be 90s Britpop stars Cast, supported by KMF fan favourites the Peatbog Faeries. The Faeries first performed at the festival in 2014 and were hugely popular. Returning for their traditional appearance, they promise to get visitors dancing with another high tempo folk set.

“We have been hoping to persuade KT Tunstall to perform at the festival for some time now, so are really delighted that she will be joining us this year,” said Nicola Meadley, Keswick Mountain Festival director.

“KT is sure to bring the live music programme to a close in spectacular fashion on the Saturday, while Friday night is shaping up to be brilliant too.  We already know that the KMF visitors dancing along with the Peatbog Faeries creates a fantastic party atmosphere, and following that with Cast will be superb!  It’s going to be a great weekend of live music for the whole family.”

Along with the live music, Keswick Mountain Festival promises a packed schedule of outdoor activities, speakers, sport and family friendly attractions. Tickets for all KMF events will go on sale at 10.am on Thursday 12 January and will be available at www.keswickmountainfestival.co.uk.

Prices for tickets to see the live music range from £16 for adults (£7.50 for children) for either Friday or Saturday night (local residents can buy tickets at a reduced rate – £10 for adults and £5 for children), to £65 for an adult weekend ticket, including camping, both nights of live music and unlimited ‘have-a-go’ activities and speakers in the Festival Village.
