Best known for their two hit singles Goodbye Mr A and Worried About Ray, which both reached the UK top five in 2007, their double platinum debut album The Trick To Life reached number one in the UK charts in the same year.

The Hoosiers - which now comprises singer-guitarist Irwin Sparkes and drummer Alan Sharland have released five albums, two of which have reached the top 10 in the albums chart, and four top 40 singles.

Matt Clark, chairman of Spalding Festival, expressed his excitement about this year's lineup, stating, "I have said from the outset that we are taking things up a notch this year, and the addition of The Hoosiers as our Sunday headliner is the pinnacle of that vision.

“It's been a real coup to sign them, and while we've been eagerly anticipating this announcement for some time, contractual obligations prevented us from releasing the news sooner.

“I'm thrilled that the public now know."

Known for their infectious energy and hit songs, The Hoosiers promise to deliver an unforgettable performance. Their unique blend of pop-rock sounds are billed as the perfect finale to a weekend of celebration.

Matt further emphasised the significance of The Hoosiers' addition to the lineup, stating, "This brilliant chart band not only fits into the festival better than any previous announcement, but they are also nothing short of an awesome end to our celebratory weekend.

“Their dynamic stage presence and chart-topping hits will ensure that Sunday night at Spalding Festival is an electrifying experience for all attendees."

Spalding Festival attendees can look forward to an incredible weekend filled with live music alongside entertainment from bingo to circus workshops and football fanzone to fairground, with the event expected to sell far more tickets than ever before.

Matt added: “Ticket sales truly are off the scale and there is now a very real chance that numbers will need to be controlled and some will miss out.

“With presales at four times the previous year before today's announcement it's imperative to secure your tickets as soon as you can!"
