Organisers have announced that The Noisettes are set to top the bill at LeeFest in South East London this July.
New York based Friends & Londoners Clean Bandit have also been announced today, joining an eclectic line-up already featuring Delphic & King Charles.
Artists also released today include The Other Tribe, Stanton Warriors, Man Like Me, Public Service Broadcasting, Lulu James, Fiction, Stealing Sheep & To Kill A King.
The following acts are also set to appear across the festival’s four stages: Story Books, Wall, Thumpers, Concrete Knives, Keston Cobblers Club, Hackney Colliery Band, The Ramona, Flowers, Crushed Beaks, Eliza and The Bear, Misty Miller, By The Rivers & Troumaca.
The homegrown festival, run by Lee Denny and a team of young volunteers, was rebelliously founded in his back garden in Bromley, Kent in 2006 whilst his parents were away on holiday.
Named 2012’s “Best Independent Festival” by the Association of Independent Music, the festival has recently grabbed headlines for taking the extraordinary step of allowing fans to join its board of creative directors. By raising money through crowd funding website Kickstarter, the LeeFest organisers plan to double the size of the event whilst safeguarding the festival’s non-profit status.
