BBC Music has named Little Orchard Cider and Music Festival as Cornwall’s official Summer of Music festival for 2017.

Nominated by BBC Radio Cornwall’s mid-morning show presenter David White, the music and cider themed event will return to the grounds of Healey’s Cyder Farm on Friday 8 to Sunday 10 September, including the BBC Music Introducing in Cornwall stage.

Showcasing the very best of the regions emerging talent, the stage will play host to a string of exciting acts, capturing and sharing this year’s performances via the BBC network.

Creating a one-stop shop initiative for the festival experience again this summer, BBC Music has partnered with BBC local radio across the UK to champion one festival per station and provide coverage which is then collated into a digital collection on BBC Music and each of the 41 regional stations.

Set to be the biggest BBC Introducing lineup Little Orchard Cider & Music Festival has seen, guests can expect performances from Haunt the Woods, The Sum Of, Son of Dave, Wolf Note, Marcus McCoan, Winter Mountain plus many more acts.

David White, BBC Radio Cornwall presenter, said: “It’s our fifth year hosting a BBC Music Introducing in Cornwall stage at Little Orchard Festival and it gets better every year. We’re thrilled it’s going to get coverage on the BBC Music website, giving music fans all over the country a taste of a good old Cornish festival.”

Over on the main stage, this year’s headline acts include pop rockers Scouting For Girls, Ireland’s very own Hothouse Flowers and The Neville Staple Band. Little Orchard Cider and Music Festival will also play host to cider loving four-piece The Wurzels, Birmingham’s very own Electric Swing Circus, and London six-piece Imperial Leisure.

Festival organiser Ben Hall said: “It’s an honour to have been chosen as Cornwall's official BBC Summer of Music festival for 2017. BBC Radio Cornwall has supported the event since day one which has proved instrumental in its growth. Having the ability to provide a platform for unsigned artists is very important to us and it’s a privilege to showcase local musicians in a credible way. It will be fantastic to have BBC Radio Cornwall there in full force this year, filming and documenting festival action.”

Festival guests are also encouraged to look out for the silent disco, comedy hours, Little Orchard Feast Village, secret cider walks, the vintage fun fair, and yoga sessions.
