Organisers of Tring music concert Chilfest today announced the star-studded line up for next year’s show.

Grammy award-winning artist Billy Ocean will headline the 80s-inspired event on Saturday, July 11 which is back by popular demand following public outcry after it was initially declared it wouldn’t be returning in 2015.

R’n’B crooner Billy will be joined by synthpop trio ABC, Kajagoogoo lead singer Limahl and ‘You’ll Never Stop Me Loving You’ singer Sonia.

Also performing will be pop-rock foursome The Blow Monkeys, British soul trio The Real Thing and – after crowds declared an encore last year – popular ska band Bad Manners are back for a second round.

It was announced on the Chilfest Facebook page that early bird tickets will be on sale from December 5. Visit the website here for more details or search ‘Chilfest’ on Facebook for the latest updates.
