Organisers of Dreamland's By the Sea festival have released details of the second wave of acts, after announcing they had secured The Libertines, Metronomy and Everything Everything for the September festival.
Cult band British Sea Power join the line-up on the back of their recent album Let The Dancers Inherit The Party which has drawn some of the best reviews of their almost two-decade long career.
Also confirmed is Marika Hackman, whose current album I’m Not Your Man tackles big issues around femininity, sexual identity and the perils of being young in a fast-paced world.
Flamboyant London sextet HMLTD play along with Dream Wife, whose razor sharp pop tunes and fiery punk attitude has inspired chaotic scenes while on tour with Sleigh Bells and The Kills.
Girl Ray come to the festival shortly after the August release of their debut album Earl Grey and multi-instrumentalist quintet Flamingods join the list to perform.
All-female Deep Throat Choir will appear as well as Let’s Wrestle guitarist Wesley Gonzalez.
The festival, now in its third year, has featured Foals, Bat for Lashes and Wolf Alice.
After a major revamp at the Margate site, visitors to the festival from Friday, September 29 to Sunday, October 1, will able to go on the attractions free.
DJ sets will also be staged by the dodgems, although the DJ bill is still to be announced. Previous acts have included Jarvis Cocker and Hot Chip.
Three-day tickets are now sold out with general tickets on sale for £82.50 and two-day tickets from £47.50. Single day tickets cost £20 for the Friday and £32.50 for the Saturday, with Sunday sold out.
