The headline acts for St Ives September Festival have been announced for next year.
Nine-piece band The South, which features former members of Beautiful South, and rock band Hawkwind will both take centre stage at the 2014 event.
Tickets are already on sale for the festival which will run from September 13 to 27.
Alan Shepherd, chairman of the St Ives September Festival, is excited about plans now underway for 2014.
He said: “I am extremely pleased to announce that The South and Hawkwind will be performing at the 2014 festival. We are sure these acts, along with ones we have up our sleeve to confirm in 2014, will help to attract more visitors than ever before."
Luxury holiday company, Cornish Gems, has once again been confirmed as the festival’s title sponsor.
Mr Shepherd added: “We are pleased to be continuing our excellent working relationship with Cornish Gems. Joining forces with the company for 2013 was an exciting development for us and we can’t wait to work together to ensure the 2014 festival reaches as wide an audience as possible.”
St Ives September Festival has been running for more than 35 years with visitors coming to the town enjoy the live music, theatre and comedy performances.
Each year the festival takes place in a variety of venues throughout the town, during the day and night, boasting free entry to some of the smaller events.
Julianne Shelton, managing co-director of Cornish Gems, said the company is thrilled to be backing the event for the second year running.
“St Ives is a stunning place to live and work and the committee of volunteers behind the festival have a real passion for the town which truly shines through. The feedback we received when we supported the event for 2013 was fantastic.
"The St Ives September Festival is a longstanding, widely known Cornish festival and Cornish Gems is proud to be title sponsor for a second year. We are confident our ongoing support will positively impact the success of the 2014 event and encourage sponsorship support from other local businesses."
The festival is now opening its doors to secondary sponsors, who will benefit from a range of marketing opportunities in return for financial support.
