A simply “purrrfect” addition to the line up, Ashley Roberts has been confirmed for The Main Stage on Saturday 19th July. The American star singer/songwriter, and TV presenter is best known as a former member of the brilliant Pussycat Dolls, but is due to release her debut solo album this summer and has become an incredibly popular face in the UK following numerous television appearances on the likes of I’m A Celebrity, Dancing on Ice and Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

This year, organisers are delighted to announce a partnership between the foremost music academy in the UK, The ACM, and GuilFest:  The Brand New “ACM Presents” Stage – A new area at the festival that will showcase the best up and coming talent the academy has to offer as well as some top acts including:

A Saturday night headline slot on 19th July from a true legend of drum and bass, Roni Size.  Most famous for the underground anthem “Brown Paper Bag”, Roni is one of the undisputed heavyweights of the underground scene.  He released a plethora of jungle/drum and bass classics under the Full Cycle and V recordings labels throughout the late nineties and noughties, and even won the Mercury Music Prize with his live band Reprazent in 1997 for the album New Forms.

A Sunday night headline slot on 20th July from brand new rock n roll outfit En Garde.  A new act formed from members of Kids In Glass Houses and Attack!Atttack!  (whom have both graced the festival over the years)  En Garde can be described as loud, full on rock and roll, with a certain “Je ne sais quoi”.   Following the critical acclaim of their single “Bar Stool Politics”, they are due to release their debut album “Weekenders” later this year.

The already brilliantly eclectic line up at this year’s festival will balloon to an incredible 200 acts across 13 stages of great music, comedy and theatre.  Elsewhere at the festival you can find a wealth of attractions designed to keep the whole family engaged for three sun-blissed days in the idyllic setting of Stoke Park, Guildford.  For the really young ones, there is the GuilFest Kidzone - featuring entertainers, rides, activities and even guest VIP appearances from well known children’s icons and for the rest of us around the site you can enjoy food and drink from around the world, the massive 150ft bar featuring real ale, cocktail bars, arts and crafts, street performers and plenty more.  Next door there is even Guildford Lido – a 50m outdoor swimming pool set in lush rolling countryside with showers, as well as Guildford Spectrum, a state of the art leisure centre with activities including swimming, ice skating and ten pin bowling!

Make sure you get your tickets quick! This year is looking to sell - out! Please call Seetickets on 0871 230 1106 or see the website at www.guilfest.co.uk for full details.
