Primal Scream and Hot Chip Megamix have been confirmed for Bigfoot Festival 2021.

The Scottish rockers and the Over and Over outfit will headline the UK's first craft beer music festival, which is set to take place from 18-20 June this year.

After postponing its first edition in 2020, Bigfoot will now hold its inaugural event this summer amid the sprawling forest and lake of Ragley Hall, Warwickshire.

Bobby Gillespie and co will bring their catalogue of absolute classics to proceedings, including Moving On Up, Loaded, Rocks and Country Girl, while Hot Chip will bring their twist on their indie electro classics with an infectious Megamix set.

Other acts confirmed for the event - which blends the hottest acts with craft beer - are Fat White Family, Maribou State ( DJ set), Baxter Dury, A Certain Ratio, Erol Alkan London African Gospel Choir and more.

Co-founder, Greg Wells, says, "I can’t think of a better way to recover from COVID, Brexit andTrump, than for us all to get together in the great outdoors at the height of English summer time, drink locally-made world-class beer, and watch one of the all time great bands."

Festival organisers add that "Bigfoot is operating a watertight COVID secure protocol which includes: COVID secure Risk Assessments on every aspect of the event, strong layout and density management as well as flow planning, informative and welcoming safety stewarding, increased cleaning procedures at every touch point and PPE and Track & Trace details for festival goers".

Standard tickets, which include camping, are priced at £120, while packages are available for groups of four at £360.
