Musical Acts Announced

by Benjamin Jackson | National World | April 12, 2024

The family-friendly festival CarFest, created by radio presenter and former Top Gear host Chris Evans, has announced a second wave of artists for this year’s event, complementing an already eclectic mix of acts performing over Bank Holiday Weekend 2024.

With the festival having already announced their first wave of acts, including Olly Murs (who also is headlining Flackstock this year), Eurovision favourite Sam Ryder and reggae legends UB40 comes a deluge of acts from those halcyon Cool Britannia days of old.

As revealed earlier this morning, Richard Ashcroft, Johnny Marr and the Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears will be performing at this year’s event, while a throwback to the past sees Kula Shaker performing on a festival stage once again – we weren’t joking about the Cool Britannia vibe.

They are also joined by legendary Ibiza DJ Judge Jules, Homeland actor Damian Lewis, Johnny Hates Jazz and CarFest’s favourite Dr Rangan Chatterjee will also be hitting the stage with his very own band
