Four-piece rock band Bastille have announced a rare UK festival appearance this summer at Neverworld in Kent.

The band will play the festival at John Darlings Farm near Hever, which runs from Thursday, August 2 to Sunday, August 5 and will feature 11 stages over three realms.

They join other headline act, Clean Bandit and Declan McKenna on the line-up for the festival, which started out as LeeFest and became Neverland - before this year's Neverworld.
