The festival will run until 11pm with an outdoor stage, bar and food facilities.

Other acts appearing at the festival include Chris Madin, The Great Pretender, The Jokers, The Screaming Eagles, The Wallbirds, St Harlot, Twice As Nice and Natalie.

Ticket prices in advance are just £15 per person with under 12s free, although they must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets on the gate will cost £20.

Camping pitches are also available on Saturday and Sunday night.

Civic Mayor of Doncaster Coun Eva Hughes said: “I’m really looking forward to attending this year’s festival.

“As well as being a great day out, the Festival raises money for a really good cause, all proceeds go to Doncaster’s local cancer charity – The Aurora Centre.”
