Strummer of Love Line-Up Announced
Thursday, 19th Apr 2012
Earlier this year we mentioned Strummerville, a Foundation set up by the family and friends of Clash frontman Joe Strummer after he sadly passed away in 2002. Since its launch, Strummerville has helped up and coming musicians up and down the country gain access to musical and recording equipment to nurture and develop new talent that may have gone unnoticed without a little extra help. This year, the Foundation will commemorate the ten year anniversary since Joe's death with a 'Strummer of Love' 3 day music festival in Somerset.
The initial line-up has been released, and features a great mix of new and established talent. The Pogues and Badly Drawn Boy have been confirmed as headliners, with performers ranging from Billy Bragg to David Rodigan in close support. Fred Perry collaborator Don Letts will feature at the event, as will Subculture favourites Dog is Dead. Ticket sales from the event will benefit the Strummerville Foundation.
