Original musical talent is set to descend on the north Norfolk coast for a weekend of rock, blues, country, spoken word and more.
Deepdale Backpackers and Camping will be opening its grounds during the last weekend of September and will see the Deepdale Festival celebrating artists by hosting more than 30 acts over three days.
Festival director Chris Haycock said: “I love being surrounded by musicians and creative talent, and Deepdale Festival is about these fantastically creative people all gathering in one lovely place to make great music.
“After the success of our first Deepdale Festival in 2017, it is wonderful to see the support for this event both from artists and visitors.
“Our whole crew are looking forward to hosting what should be a very special weekend.”
