Hard Fi and Ian Brown to headline Hi:Fi South Festival

Hi:Fi is a new twin-site music festival that kicks off in May 2006, as the first festival with a line up of both block-rocking bands and superstar DJs. The super-sized event takes place in Newcastle in the North and the Matterley Bowl near Winchester in the South.

Hi:Fi South will take place for two days and nights on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May between 2pm and 4am each day. As part of the last Bank Holiday Weekend in May, Hi:Fi will kick-start the summer by being the first major outdoor music event of the season.

Headline acts for Hi:Fi South include: Hard-Fi (Saturday) and Ian Brown (Sunday), The Subways, Audio Bullys, Paul Oakenfold, Sasha & John Digweed, Carl Cox and 2Many DJS.

For the northern event Ian Brown, Maximo Park and Editors have been confirmed on the line up so far.

Hi:Fi is organized by Angel Music Group, who are responsible for Global Gathering which last year sold out with over 40,000 people attending. The indie line up has been supervised by Glastonbury talent booker Martin Elbourne who provides valuable insight into the live music scene.

Tickets cost £99 for both days or £150 with camping, while day tickets will be on sale for £54.50.
