X Factor star Lucy Spraggan has joined chart toppers the Hoosiers on the line up for this summer’s Oakwell Festival.

Lucy will join fellow X-Factor finalists Kingsland Road and the Hoosiers on the main stage.

Also on the bill for the festival, at Oakwell Hall on July 12, is Bluetones frontman Mark Morriss.

More than 20 local, regional and national acts will perform throughout the day on three stages.

Other confirmed acts include the Dunwells, Famous Villains, the Littlemores, Aztec Doll and Rory Hoy.

Organiser Paul Fisher said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of high calibre bands that have applied to play the festival and we’ve had to put on a third acoustic stage to accommodate more acts.

“We’re delighted to have been able to attract such acts as Lucy to our first Oakwell Festival.”

The festival is run by not-for-profit organisation Working Chimp Productions CIC with a five strong management team.

All proceeds from the festival will go to charitable and local good causes.

Paul said: “We don’t have a big music festival in this part of West Yorkshire and with the sad demise of Party in the Park in Leeds, Oakwell Festival offers an alternative local music event for all ages.”

Tickets are on sale at £20 and children under 10 go free.
