The Charlatans and The Enemy: Sunday's great double bill
Last updated at 12:35, Sunday, 03 June 2012
THE Charlatans and The Enemy are the huge names performing on the main stage this Sunday.
Also taking to the stage on the final night of the festival will be Simon Townsend who plays alongside his brother Pete in The Who, and The Lottery Winners.
Led by charismatic frontman Tim Burgess, The Charlatans burst out of the Madchester music scene in 1990 with their debut album Some Friendly and the psychedelia-tinged hit single The Only One I Know.
Major hits such as North Country Boy, How High, Weirdo and One to Another followed.
All of the band’s 11 studio albums have charted in the Top 40 and three of them were number ones. They have also racked up 17 Top 30 singles, and four Top 10 hits in the singles chart.
Indie rockers The Enemy are also chart regulars. The band’s debut album We’ll Live and Die in These Towns went straight to number one in the albums chart in 2007 and the follow-up, Music for the People made it to number two.
The Enemy performed on the roof of Wembley Stadium to kick off the FA Cup Final on May 5.
And the band’s long-awaited new album Streets in the Sky was released on May 21.
Whitehaven Festival Company and The Mighty Boof Promotions worked to secure the Sunday night line-up. Danny Maudling and David Eldon, of The Mighty Boof, said: “It’s become a bit of a challenge to beat their line-ups on the previous evenings and we think we’ve won this year.”
