More details have been announced of the line-up for the eagerly-awaited Off The Tracks Spring Festival 2012.

Another 16 acts have been confirmed, and information has been provided of how the days will break down at the festival.

Hawkwind, Wilko Johnson, Warsaw Village Band, Dub Pistols and Simon Friend’s Seismic Survey top the bill at Donington Park Farm, Isley Walton, near Castle Donington, on May 25-27, as previously announced.

Legendary world fusion band Celtarabia will appear, having returned to the stage in 2012 after a ten-year break. Celtarabia play high-energy music for dancing and the band guarantee a great night out.

Also added are hotly-tipped rising folk/pop act The Fallows, who released their debut album Face the Wolves recently.

Amongst others, Kasaï Masaï bring the traditional sound of the most remote Equatorial villages, and Jerzey Street Band will offer their distinctive brand of Americana ‘freight train rock’.

Festival co-founder Andy Cooper said: “At a time when many festivals are struggling, we’re confident that once again we’ve put together a line-up with something for everyone, and for the usual Off The Tracks great value.”

With more performers still to be announced, the full line-up will include around 40 artists on two stages, as well as 70-plus real ales, ciders and perries, excellent camping facilities and a great, family friendly atmosphere.

The latest line-up sees appearances by Wilko Johnson and The Fallows on Friday, Hawkwind, Bigtopp, Kasai Masai, Jerzey St Band, The Old Dance School, Nordic Giants, Oka Vanga and Inter Africa on the Saturday, and Dub Pistols, Warsaw Village Band, Simon Friend’s Seismic Survey, Celtarabia, Mat Andasun, Avert Francis, Richard Warren, Kelly’s Heroes, Stevie One Bloke One Mandolin, JP Cooper, Something Nasty In The Woodshed and Metheglin on the Sunday.

Weekend tickets are now on sale priced £70 (including camping). Youth tickets are £40 (12-16 years old, including camping). Admission is free for under 12s.
