The lineup for Weston-super-Mare’s Hazy Days music festival continues to take shape, with the latest batch of headliners announced.

The three-day festival will take place at Weston Rugby Club, in Sunnyside Road, from August 10-12.

Hazy Days rocked the Tropicana for two years, featuring famous acts like Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Newton Faulkner.

But this year it will be held at the rugby club, offering camping to festival-goers.

Electronic band Dreadzone and Weston’s The Leylines last month were announced as the main performers on the final night of the festival, and the organisers have now revealed the opening night will feature three world-class tribute acts which no doubt will create a party atmosphere and kickstart a great weekend of live music.

Topping the bill are internationally-renowned tribute act The Bohemians, widely recognised as the best replication of Queen on the circuit.

Legendary rockers Queen were responsible for hits like Don’t Stop Me Now, Bohemian Rhapsody and Another One Bites The Dust – and The Bohemians tour the world producing the closest you could get to Queen.

Also taking to the stage are U2 2, and Rebel Heroes – a tribute to unforgettable musical pioneer David Bowie.

U2 2 have been touring for the world for two and half decades, expertly recreating songs Irish stars U2 like With Or Without You, Beautiful Day and One.

Rebel Heroes will return to Weston after a top-class performance in 2017, set to perform Bowie’s best tunes like Starman, Ziggy Stardust and Heroes.

A Hazy Days spokesman said: “We took the decision to create an evening that remembers one of the pinnacle moments in music history where the whole world stopped for the day as the world’s greatest musicians took to stages all over the globe at Live Aid in 1985.

“There will be more three hours of some of the greatest hits from three of the biggest acts from our generation. Come and start the festival off by watching these acts on a festival stage in the heart of Weston.”
