It has been announced that indie rock band Scouting for Girls will be playing at the Dartford Festival.
It takes place over the weekend of July 19 and 20.
The band’s hits include She's So Lovely, Heartbeat and This Ain't a Love Song.
Scouting For Girls will be headlining the main stage on Sunday afternoon.
Later on in the evening 2-Tone band, The Beat, will be performing.
They formed in Birmingham in 1978 as part of the West Midlands ska revival scene that also produced The Specials and The Selecter.
The Beat, a blend of ska, pop, reggae and punk rock, released a string of hit singles including “Mirror in the Bathroom”, “Too Nice To Talk To” and “All Out To Get You”, getting them a loyal following both in the UK and abroad.
Saturday’s headline act will be 17 year-old Luke Friend, who appeared on the 2013 series of The X Factor.
He made it to the finals, eventually finishing third with his version of “Anything Can Happen” with Ellie Goulding.
