Veteran soul man Bobby Womack is to headline this year's (14) Womad festival in England with fellow 'pensioners' Richard Thompson and Manu Dibango.

Together with 54-year-old Youssou N'Dour, the four stars are an accumulated 269, making the upcoming music event one for the ages - literally.

Almost 100 artists from 40 countries will perform at this year's four-day festival, which will take place in Wiltshire at the end of July.
