A GLOUCESTERSHIRE village will be hosting some big names from the music world at this summer's Nibley Festival.

The not-for-profit music festival run entirely by volunteers is returning for a 13th year on Friday, July 5 and Saturday, July 6.

Hip hop legends the Sugarhill Gang, Britpop quartet Cast, and punk ska pop star Rat Boy are all set to headline at this year's event.

Tickets to the festival, held at Nibley House Farm in the village of North Nibley, go on sale at 9am on Saturday, March 16.

Cast will be topping the bill on Friday night.

Labelled ‘The Who of the 90’s’, the band was formed in 1992 from the ashes of two lauded guitar bands, The La’s and Shack.

Cast had a string of top ten singles and platinum albums - their first, All Change was the biggest selling debut for Polydor Records - before they disbanded in 2001.

They reformed in 2012 with their original line-up.

Noel Gallagher once described watching Cast play live as 'a religious experience'.

Saturday night sees the Sugarhill Gang, Grandmaster Melle Mel and Scorpio of the Furious Five co-headline with Rat Boy.

Grammy Award and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees, the Sugarhill Gang were responsible for getting the first ever rap song into the Top 40 for their seminal single, Rapper’s Delight. Their Nibley set will include classic tracks such as Rappers Delight, Apache, The Message, White Lines and Freedom.

In April 2017, Rat Boy's song Knock Knock was sampled on Kendrick Lamar's song "Lust", and in December 2017, he supported Liam Gallagher on his UK solo tour.
