Swindon musician Chloe Little with her band Inheaven will be performing at this weekend's Wychwood Festival.

The band will be singing songs from their eponymous debut album on Friday alongside such luminaries as The Buzzcocks.

Formed in 1976, The Buzzcocks produced nine studio albums and a string of classic punk anthems including Ever Fallen In Love; What Do I Get?; and Harmony In My Head.

Also performing tomorrow will be The Black Feathers, The Black Hats, The Rajasthan Heritage Brass Band bringing a taste of Bollywood, and political singer/songwriter Billy Bragg.

The festival welcomes all ages and orchestrates a packed programme with something to suit all musical tastes, mixing timeless greats with up and coming nubees, literature, comedy and children's entertainment.

There are more than 100 bands over four stages and Saturday sees OMD take the headline slot. Fresh from their recent concert at the Royal Albert Hall the 1980s icons will showcase a mix of old favourites and new works in their inimitable, experimental electronic music style including their latest single, Isotype, taken from the duo’s new album The Punishment Of Luxury. Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark are Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys, synth pioneers, who notched up hits with If You Leave, Enola Gay, So In Love, Electricity, Joan of Arc and Tesla Girls.

Play, art and performance is the name of the game for the young ones at the Cheltenham racecourse, with a huge amount of activities designated for children, under the practised eye of Katy Ashworth from CBeebies.

Literary folk are not forgotten, as artists such as BBC Radio 6 music resident poet, Murray Lachlan Young, proves in his Speakeasy sessions, and there is a Kids' Literature Festival.

Having a laugh will be comedians Cerys Nelmes, Christian Reilly and David Jordan in the comedy zone.

There will be more than 100 workshops for all ages, a variety of food stalls and bars. Therapixie will be presiding over the Healing Gardens with a team of independent therapists offering a wide range of treatments from hot stone massage to Reiki.

Brighton folk/punk band The Levellers are returning to Wychwood on Sunday to close the main stage. The Levellers hits include What A Beautiful Day, One Way, 15 Years and Far From Home and Battle Of The Beanfield.

Also taking to the stage on Sunday will be The Strypes, from Ireland, performing songs from their latest album Little Victories.
