Hook was a founding member of Manchester bands Joy Division and New Order. Festival go-ers are advised to expect the hits.

Danny Rampling and Graeme Park provide a double header to the DJ line up.

Danny Rampling is considered to be a founding father of the UK and Ibiza House music scenes and has continued to play evolving styles ever since.

The addition of DJ Graeme Park continues the Manchester theme to this year’s Redcliffe Festival as he rose to prominence at the Hacienda back in the summer of love.

Festival director and farmer at Redcliffe Farm Martin Brown said: “We began by promoting local bands here in the grounds of the Farm Shop, now things have grown and we have a proper festival stage plus the Cattle Shed Theatre and this year we have will have the new silent disco.”

Mr Brown has run the festival since hiring a band to play at his own 50th birthday party in 2016.

Guests can expect to find the best in local beers and farm shop food, as supplied by Redcliffe Farm Shop.

The festival runs from Friday July 19 to Sunday July 21, with camping available on the farm. Tickets are on sale now, with an early bird offer available until the end of February.

Martin is still keen to provide an opportunity for local bands to play in the festival atmosphere. This year will see the first Free Festival Thursday.

A free evening of live bands and comedy, taking place on Thursday July 18, the day before YC19 Redcliffe Festival proper.

The bands will play on the main stage and applications should be made via the festival facebook page.

Free Festival Thursday will be headlined by Scarborough band Sub Gents.
