De La Soul, Chas and Dave, Shed Seven and Ms Dynamite have all been confirmed to play at what is tipped to be the 'best ever' PennFest this summer. 

New York City band Fun Lovin' Criminals, hip hop duo Rizzle Kicks, Soul II Soul, Reef and alternative rock band Toploader will also be joining the line-up, plus DJ sets from Artful Dodger and DJ Luck and McNeat.

The bands will be joining award-winning rapper Dizzee Rascal, best known for hits like Fix Up, Look Sharp, Bonkers and Holiday, who will take to the festival main stage in The Big Park, Penn Street, on the Saturday.

The family-friendly music event will run for two days, Friday, July 22 and Saturday, July 23, instead of three this year, but organisers are promising that the sixth annual festival will be the ‘best ever’ with even more acts still to be announced.

Organisers of the sixth annual festival are hoping to improve on PennFest's impressive line-up in July last year, which saw the likes of Razorlight, Happy Mondays and Scouting for Girls perform to a record number of music fans.
