The Charlatans and Badly Drawn Boy join Lakefest 2017 line up

Chockers are back in fashion and plaid shirts are fair game.

If you haven't already been reminded of how good the 90s were (see: 6 Music Celebrates 1994, the return of Baywatch, all the love for Daria), then allow Lakefest 2017 to assist.

The family-oriented summer festival, held at Eastnor Castle, near Ledbury, Herefordshire, will offer full frontal 90s nostalgia, with The Charlatans, Badly Drawn Boy and ASWAD joining Feeder and Turin Brakes on the bill. Imelda May, Wilko Johnson, Alabama 3 and Seth Lakeman have already been announced.
