Blissfields Festival 2013, Headline Acts Announced! Bastille And Mystery Jets

Blissfields Festival is pleased to unveil its headline acts for 2013. Under the banner 'The Director's Cut', the award winning Hampshire festival will be celebrating all things film in its 13th year, from the early talkies to VIP Hollywood parties. Expect a weekend full of red carpets, interactive games, popcorn-throwing dance-offs, film screenings, the best soundtracks, visual treats, hidden treasures and all the usual fun that Blissfields has become synonymous with. topped by the first announced headline music acts: Mystery Jets & Bastille.

Mystery Jets first performed at Blissfields in 2005, the summer before their debut album Making Dens found them acclaimed heroes of indie and leaders of what would become the Thames-beat folk scene that followed. They return to Blissfields after a run of top-40 singles including 'The Boy Who Ran Away' and gloriously catchy 'Two Doors Down', as esteemed festival headliners, their live set now full of bouncing, rousing and urgent pop songs spanning four albums. It's with tremendous pleasure that Blissfields can welcome back Mystery Jets who have selected the festival for a unique headline appearance this summer, continuing in the festival's tradition of bringing special performances to a boutique set-up seen previously with Super Furry Animals, Mumford and Sons, Frank Turner and Laura Marling to name a few.

They're joined by Bastille, one of 2013's most exciting breakthrough live acts. Having picked up press and radio support with their single 'Flaws' and most recently 'Pompeii', with extensive UK touring over the past 20 months, including two sold out nights at Shepherds Bush Empire, they've a devoted and fierce fanbase, idolizing Dan Smith's heartbreaking, wild and earnest lyrics. The touching vocals collide into massive pop melodies, making Bastille not just a powerful band for honest song fans, but for any ears of taste the nation over. Their debut album Bad Blood is released this March via Island/Universal and already looks to be one of Britain's major crossover success stories of the year.

FIELD OF DREAMS
Over the past 13 years, Blissfields has grown from a family gathering in the garden of founders' Paul and Mel Bliss into one of Britain's most celebrated small festivals, claiming the BEST SMALL FESTIVAL 2007 award at the UK Festival Awards. It remains a family-run and totally independent 2,500 capacity festival that takes all of the best bits from the big festivals, and scales it down into an intimate, friendly, beautiful setting, dominated by parkland trees, just outside of Winchester.
