Kent's Rochester Castle welcomes four days of live music this summer, with an eclectic line up of artists headed to the site's hugely impressive surroundings.
The beautiful 12th-century tower is one of the best preserved in England, with the huge live music events set in stunning gardens.
Taking place between Wednesday 8th July - Saturday 11th July, the run of dates sees Jools Holland's Rhythm & Blues Orchestra headline on the opening night, with British indie royalty The Libertines bringing classics tracks such as 'Don't Look Back Into The Sun', 'Time For Heroes', 'Can't Stand Me Now' and plenty more to the event's second night on Thursday 9th July.
There will be party hits galore as The Jacksons bring some timeless classics to what will be an epic Friday night party, while ska and reggae legends UB40 will be joined by the Dualers, The Beat and more on the closing night of the event. Ali Campbell and Astro will not be performing at this date.
