King’s Lynn’s free Festival Too will end on a high note tomorrow night when legendary boy band Busted take to the stage.
Thousands of people are expected to see this year’s headline act at the Tuesday Market Place, fresh from their sell-out Glastonbury appearance.
Festival Too chairman Alan Taylor said: “We are looking forward to it being one of our most successful bookings to date. We are pleased that Festival Too managed to secure them as part of their world tour.
“The Busted guys themselves have even spoken about coming to Lynn on national television and we’re looking forward to our famous outdoor event.”
Busted – made up of Matt Willis, Charlie Simpson and James Bourne – have had four UK number one albums and a string of chart hits, including their debut single What I Go to School For, Crashed the Wedding, Air Hostess and Year 3000.
The band launched onto the pop scene in 2000 and split after five hugely successful years.
They reformed in 2015 and released their current album, Night Driver, last November.
Tomorrow night’s music kicks off at 6.30pm and festival-goers will be treated to performances from Springwood High School, Flint Moore, Amber, Etham and Twin Wild, before Busted take to the stage for the finale.
Mr Taylor added: “Tomorrow promises to be a night to remember. The weather is expected to be great so please come along. We would ask that if you enjoy the show, please drop a donation in the bucket.
“Your support, even if it’s just a couple of pounds, will help to secure next year’s Festival Too.”
The final weekend of the free event begins at 7.30pm tonight when there will be performances from King Edward VII School Academy, Kat Brittain and reggae band Musical Youth, best known for 1982 hit single Pass the Dutchie.
Tonight will also see a performance by 90s Britpop band Space, who had success with Female of the Species and Neighbourhood in the 1990s.
Norfolk police have urged festival-goers to keep their belongings safe and plan their travel arrangements in advance.
Superintendent Terry Lordan said: “We want people to have fun and enjoy the acts on stage, but it is important people keep a close eye on their personal belongings, such as wallets, cameras and mobile phones, and not become victim to thieves.
“Allow extra time when attending the festival. Bag checks will be carried out by the event’s security team and we want to make sure you get into the event before the acts start to perform.
“This is a family-friendly event and we will be on hand to make sure you have a great time where we will ‘meet you there’.”
Festival Too began in 1985 and has grown to become one of Europe’s largest free music festivals.
