The one-day music spectacular was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 because of Covid but will bounce back in July with a massive-line up.

Organisers have confirmed the show will feature Britpop favourites including Feeder, Republica and The Coral while also on the bill are the Lightning Seeds, the band behind the iconic ‘it’s coming home’ football anthem Three Lions.

Doncaster’s own Bang Bang Romeo will perform and the acoustic tent will see performances from Chris Helme (The Seahorses), Mark Morriss (The Bluetones) and Nigel Clark (Dodgy).
