Marlon Williams added to 2018 line up

Thursday 5 April 2018

We are delighted to announce that Marlon Williams will be joining us at this year's Festival. 

New Zealand’s Marlon Williams has quite simply got one of the most extraordinary, effortlessly distinctive voices of his generation—a fact well known to fans of his first, self-titled solo album, and his captivating live shows. An otherworldly instrument with an affecting vibrato, it’s a voice that’s earned repeated comparisons to the great Roy Orbison, and even briefly had Williams, in his youth, consider a career in classical singing, before realising his temperament was more Stratocaster than Stradivarius. 

Marlon will perform on stage 1 on Friday 3rd August, he joins First Aid Kit, Patti Smith, Janis Ian, John Prine and many more incredible performers at this year's Festival.

There are still even more artists to announce over the next few months so make sure you keep an eye on our social media and website for those all important updates!
