GET ready to let down their hair and don your shiniest trousers as epic rock legends The Darkness will be playing a festival in Teignbridge this summer.

Lowestoft’s best know musical export have been announced as headliners, alongside British singer songwriter Ella Eyre, at the Nature Valley Gone Wild Festival at Powderham Castle in August.

The family-friendly festival combines family adventure during the day with world class music at night.

Created in collaboration with Bear Grylls, will take place over the August bank holiday weekend with other headline music acts including The Script, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Reef and returning crowd favourites The Ministry of Sound Orchestra.

The Darkness will take the atmosphere all the way to 11 with awesome riffs, soul shaking guitars and all the silliness you’d expect from the UK’s glammest rockers. Frontman Justin Hawkins and the band will be playing tracks from new album MotorHeart as well as putting on a sensational show playing hits such as I Believe In A Thing Called Love and One Way Ticket.

Also joining the lineup is Ella Eyre, known for her powerful vocals and chart topping hits such as Came Here For Love and Waiting All Night.

With over 4.6million monthly listens on Spotify, three platinum selling singles, a BRIT award and two MOBO awards Ella is an unmissable artist who will fill the grounds of Powderham Castle with driving beats as the sun goes down.

The bank holiday weekend festival combines family adventure during the day with world class music at night.

Walk up activities will run throughout the weekend, including kayaking, tree climbing, yoga, science workshops, skateboarding and a junior jungle family rave, plus lots more.

It was amazing to see so many families having fun all together at our Nature Valley Gone Wild Festival last year’,’ said Bear Grylls.

‘I saw so many smiles on kids faces as they tried many of the epic adventure activities, and loved being part of the crowd as so many awesome bands rocked the festival.

‘I’m very proud that we are doing it all again, and I’m honoured that explorers and adventurers that inspire so many have agreed to join us .’
