Revolutionary hip-hop icons Public Enemy have been announced as headliners for this summer’s Secret Garden Party, joining Little Dragon and Fat Freddy’s Drop.

Hercules & Love Affair, King Charles, Say Lou Lou, Foreign Beggars, The Skints, Eagles for Hands, Thumbers, Jon Batiste, The 45s, Beans on Toast and General Skank are among the latest acts to be added to the Cambridge festival’s line-up.

Many more are already confirmed to play in Huntingdon’s Mill Hill Field from 24-27 July, including Clean Bandit, Sub Focus, Foxes, Jagwar Ma, Deap Vally and Gorgon City.

New York-based DJ Andy Butler of Hercules & Love Affair spoke of his excitement ahead of the “legendary” boutique event.

“I have had the opportunity to take two versions of the Hercules live show to many festivals, but every now and then get to one where the curation/line-up is ace, the location is wonderful and the overall organisation and attitude is stellar – this would be the Secret Garden Party,” he said.

 

“We played to a raging audience that went for it the first time there and I made my mind up. I wanted to go back. So much love, so much love.”

The theme for 2014 will be “Goodbye Yellowbrick Road” and “its promise of social/financial redemption”, with tickets on sale now for £175.
