WHEN She Was Mine chart stars Lawson are now all yours - they have been added to the star-studded pop line-up at Sheftival.

Real Radio and Tramlines, in association with The Star, today confirmed the top new boyband will perform and so will X Factor favourite, the queen of R&B in waiting, Misha B.

They will lead the charge on a weekend of music and sport timed to celebrate Jessica Ennis competing in the heptathlon at the Olympics. It will be held in Don Valley, Sheffield, on Saturday and Sunday, August 4 and 5.

A total of 80 acts are playing at Sheftival including urban pop girl band Stooshe, X Factor sensation Marcus Collins, Fame Academy’s Lemar, The Noisettes and The Lightning Seeds.

Lawson, fresh from a sold-out headline UK tour as well as an arena tour with The Wanted, are just back from Los Angeles where they have been recording their highly anticipated debut.

Misha B built a huge fan base on the lastest series of X Factor and she is about to release her debut single, Home Run.

But Rizzle Kicks are off the bill - and their management are yet to say why.

However Steve South, managing director of Real Radio Yorkshire, said: “Landing a great band such as Lawson is another fantastic result for an event which will become part of Sheffield’s Olympic history. Add Misha B to the mix and Sheftival becomes an unmissable festival.

“This is going to be such a fantastic weekend of music and sports and is great value. What could you buy for £12? A great day out at Sheftival, that’s what.”
