Lounge on the Farm returns for 2010

Lounge on the Farm is predicting a heatwave to celebrate its landmark fifth birthday celebrations on the weekend of 9th to 11th July 2010.

Martha Reeves and The Vandellas have been confirmed as headliners of the event. The performers will take to the stage on the Saturday night.

Set in the idyllic surrounds of Merton Farm in Canterbury, Lounge on the Farm, winner of the UK Festival Awards' Best Line Up Award 2009, has once again pulled out all the stops to assemble a fantastically eclectic bill that doesn't follow the herd.
 
Joining Motown giants Martha Reeves & The Vandellas - whose hits include 'Dancing In The Street', 'Jimmy Mack', 'Nowhere To Run' and '(Love is Like A) Heatwave' - and stupendous Reggae greats Toots & The Maytals, who proved such an inspiration to both the Clash with 'Pressure Drop' and The Specials with 'Monkey Man' - will be incomparable deck-master DJ Yoda, the British Jazz scene's leading light Courtney Pine, Irish troubadour Fionn Regan, folktronic tour de force Tunng and 60s psychedelic legend The Crazy World of Arthur Brown who will no doubt deliver a scorcher.

Confirmed line-up so far:

Martha Reeves & The Vandellas / Toots & The Maytals / DJ Yoda / Courtney Pine / Fionn Regan / Kitty, Daisy & Lewis / Tunng / Crazy World of Arthur Brown / Thomas Gandey (Cagedbaby) / Male Bonding / Gaggle / Man Like Me / King Charles / Circulus / Jesca Hoop / Treetop Flyers / Your Twenties / Don Letts / The Glimmers / J*Star / Raf Daddy (Two Bears) / Vadoinmessico / Xylaroo / 6 Day Riot / Cats And Cats And Cats / Cocos Lovers / Elephants / Gaolers Daughter / Cha Cha / Polka Party / Two Wounded Birds / Hobo Jones & The Junkyard Dogs / Intensified / Krissy & The Jackdaws / Slap Alice / Natasha Davies
