First acts announced for this year's Dartford Festival
BRITAIN’S Got Talent finalists Lovable Rogues have been named as one of the headline acts at this year’s Dartford Festival.
They are joined by X Factor finalist Ray Quinn as the first two acts to be named for the event, which is being held in Central Park on July 14 and 15.
Fresh from the hit ITV show, the Lovable Rogues hail from the other side of the Dartford Crossing in Chigwell, Essex, and will headline the festival on July 14.
They have already been signed to Simon Cowell’s record label, Syco, and will release their debut single later in the year.
Ray Quinn was runner-up in the third series of the X Factor, in 2006, and has since toured more than 30 venues across the country - he will perform on July 15.
Last year’s festival saw more than 30,000 visitors brave heavy rain to watch acts including Pop Idol winner Gareth Gates.
