FOLLOWING last week’s headliner announcement, more major acts have been added to the bill for Osfest - popular boyband Lawson and ‘Heatwave’ rapper Wiley.

Lawson and Wiley will be taking to the stage on Saturday, May 25, at the Oswestry music festival before headline act JLS, who shot to fame in ITV talent show X Factor in 2008, perform in the evening.

Boyband Lawson have had top 10 hits with ‘Taking Over Me’ and ‘When She Was Mine’ and Wiley hit the number one spot with ‘Heatwave’ last Summer.

The music festival at Oswestry Showground has been held for the last three years and has attracted a number of top acts including Razorlight, Stooshe and Hard-Fi.

The festival, which attracts hundreds of Mid Wales revellers, will take place over May Bank Holiday weekend from Friday, May 24 until Monday, May 27 at Oswestry Showground.

A variety of music and dance acts, both well known and emerging, local talent promise something to suit all musical tastes.

More announcements about acts set to perform will be made in the coming weeks and for the first time in its history, the music festival will be under cover.

This year, only the DJ and comedy tents will be outside, the main stage and second stage will be under a big top.

The main stage big top will only take 5,000 festival goers this year.

Full weekend camping tickets are priced at £59.50 and day tickets cost £29.50.
Under 16 camping tickets (for children from 11 - 15 years inclusive at the date of the festival) are priced at £55.50. Children aged under 10 years tickets are free. ID will be required when exchanging tickets for wristbands.

Earlier this week, it was announced that all 800 Early Bird tickets had sold out in 48 hours.

Carly Jackson, event director, has urged people to get hold of their tickets fast!
Ms Jackson said: “When they are gone they are gone, so don’t miss out."
