FESTIVAL favourites Keane and Ska legends The Specials will top the bill at Cornbury this year, joining previously announced The Beach Boys.

Six years after their sensational performance at Cornbury, award-winning pop rockers Keane will return to headline Cornbury’s 16th festival on Saturday, July 6.

This will be one of Keane’s first appearances since band members took a break at the end of 2013 to work on other projects, so their appearance will be a huge crowd-puller.

Formed in 1995, all four of Keane’s albums have debuted at No. 1 in the UK charts, with 2004’s Hopes and Fears remaining one of the UK’s best-selling albums of all time.

Festival founder Hugh Phillimore said: "Keane are our all-time favourite headliners at Cornbury so of course I’m completely thrilled that they’ve chosen to include us as part of their return."

Phillimore has also confirmed that The Specials will top the bill on the opening day of the Festival, Friday, July 5.

The legendary British Ska band have just returned to the UK Album Charts with their first new record in 38 years.

Rounding off the Festival on Sunday, July 7are musical legends, The Beach Boys.

The Hairy Bikers are also returning with their fabulous Festival Feast.

Cornbury Music Festival is a mix of music festival and quintessentially English village fete with a rock ‘n’ roll twist.

The Festival runs from July 5-7 at Great Tew Park, near Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire. For tickets and more information go to cornburyfestival.com
