DIZZEE Ras­cal, Riz­zle Kicks and Fun Lovin’ Crim­i­nals will be among the head­lin­ers for this year’s Pen­nFest.

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of last year’s event, Pen­nFest, held in Penn Street, will be tak­ing place on July 22 and 23.

Now in its sixth year, Pen­nFest’s line up is be­ing hailed as the best ever by or­gan­is­ers, with acts so far con­firmed as Dizzee Ras­cal, De La Soul, Riz­zle Kicks, Fun Lovin’ Crim­i­nals, Shed Seven, Soul II Soul, Reef, Ms Dy­na­mite, To­ploader and Chas and Dave, plus DJ sets from Art­ful Dodger and DJ Luck and MC Neat.

More acts are ex­pected to be an­nounced in the near fu­ture. The Big Top stage will re­turn for 2016, fea­tur­ing well known DJs who will con­tinue the party once the bands have come off stage.

In ad­di­tion to the main stage acts, there will also be a wide se­lec­tion of lo­cal bands per­form­ing, with camp­ing avail­able on site from Fri­day, July 22.

There will be free hot show­ers in the camp­ing area, as well as a qui­eter fam­ily camp­ing zone, as well as glamping with prepitched tents.

Or­gan­is­ers say that the mu­sic fes­ti­val will of­fer some­thing for the whole fam­ily, with a se­lec­tion of cre­ative work­shops, a global ar­ti­san mar­ket with arts based stalls to choose from in mu­sic.

For chil­dren there will be ac­tiv­i­ties such as arts and crafts work­shops, street en­ter­tain­ers and per­form­ers, and a cir­cus work­shop where they can learn cir­cus skills, with many of the chil­dren’s event be­ing free.

There will also be a va­ri­ety of bars and a wide range of food out­lets sell­ing food from around the world.
