Singer-songwriter KT Tunstall and Britpop band Cast will headline this year's Keswick Mountain Festival.

The festival takes place from 8-11 June and features a packed schedule of outdoor activities,speakers, sport and family-friendly attractions.

KT Tunstall has released a succession of critically acclaimed albums since bursting onto the scene with her debut Eye to the Telescope in 2004. Her music has been a regular fixture in the charts and she's earned an international following.

Formed in Liverpool, Cast became one of the most highly regarded acts during the Britpop era of the 1990s. After releasing a succession of well-regarded chart singles and albums between 1995 and 1999, the band split in 2001. Cast reformed in 2010 and have since toured regularly, playing a mixture of new material and classic tracks.

“We have been hoping to persuade KT Tunstall to perform at Keswick Mountain Festival for some time now, so are really delighted that she will be joining us this year. KT is sure to bring the live music programme to a close in spectacular fashion on the Saturday, while Friday night is shaping up to be brilliant too.

We already know that the KMF visitors dancing along with the Peatbog Faeries creates a fantastic party atmosphere, and following that with Cast will be superb! It’s going to be a great weekend of live music for the whole family.”

– Nicola Meadley, Keswick Mountain Festival Director

Tickets for the festival go on sale at 10am on Thursday.
