Foals to headline this year's Lake of Stars Festival

Foals and Freshlyground will headline this year's Lake of Stars Festival on 30th September to 2nd October in Malawi, Africa.

Joining the amazing international headliners will be a brilliant line up of Malawian talent including reggae stars Black Missionaries, afropop legend Lucius Banda plus hot new stars Maskal and Skeffa Chimoto.

Festival founder Will Jameson says 't's hard to imagine a better festival than last year- our biggest and best to date. This year will be justly global, truly Malawian, showcasing a diverse mix of traditional and new African music, art, poetry, fashion, markets, food and more.'

' encourage you to come and experience first-hand what is being talked about from London to Cape Town. Where else can you see over 70 live acts from Africa and Europe playing everything from indie to kwaito to reggae and dubstep in a location that Wanderlust travel magazine hails as one of the Top Ten emerging travel destinations in the world, says Jameson'.

In 2009 British band the Maccabees came to Malawi for their African debut and brought the UK indie noise to the shores of Lake Malawi and last year saw Noisettes fly out and perform with a Malawian choir. 

Now it's the turn of the brilliant Foals to bring their unique sound to the warm heart of Africa. Mercury prize nominees, with their track Spanish Sahara voted as Single of the Year by NME magazine in 2010, this is one of the greatest live acts from the UK. Get ready for their huge, rising anthems to hit the waves of Lake Malawi.
