Indie rock band Feeder will be playing in Norfolk this summer after being confirmed as a headline act for an up-and-coming music festival.

The organisers of Play Fest announced that the band will be playing on Sunday, June 3 at the music event in the grounds of New Eccles Hall School, near Attleborough.

Slotting in next to Ash on the main stage bill, Feeder will be bringing their tunes as the final act on the Play Fest lawn for 2012. Supporting them on the Sunday night slot will be Chase and Status’ vocal muse Delilah.

Feeder first attracted national attention with the 2001 album Echo Park, thanks to the popularity of UK top 5 single Buck Rogers, and has played big festivals such as Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds and Download.

Play Fest attracted more than 2,000 people in its first year last summer.

Rock band Ash will perform on the main stage on Saturday, June 2 with support from the Pigeon Detectives, Reverend and the Makers, and The Big Pink.

The festival, which was shortlisted in the UK Festival Awards 2011 in the best new festival category, is set to run from June 1-3.

The Big Top stage will feature an array of unsigned talent including, The Correspondents , Roots Manuva and new additions to the bill Sonic Boom Six.
