SCOUTING For Girls have been confirmed as the Sunday headliners for this year’s Godiva Festival.

The ‘She’s so Lovely’ hit-makers will play the headline slot on the Sunday evening – completing the hotly anticipated festival’s line-up for 2016.

The pop rock band from London’s self-titled debut album reached number one in the UK album charts, and have since been nominated for four Brit Awards and one Ivor Novello Award.

Speaking ahead of their performance, lead singer Roy Stride said:  “We’re delighted to be playing this year’s Godiva Festival in Coventry.

“We’ve played Coventry before and we look forward to a hopefully nice, sunny Sunday afternoon to give the crowds a great performance.”

Coventry City Council’s head of service for sports, culture, destination and business relationships, David Nuttall added: “We’re really pleased that we have all three of our headline bands now confirmed with The Boomtown Rats, The Charlatans and Scouting For Girls making up our 2016 line up.

“We are still confirming more acts and bands to our line up, including artists for Saturday’s Rhythm Tent and Sunday’s Tent so there will be more announcements over the coming weeks.”
