By Angela Cole

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.
