London Feis has confirmed that it will be extending its festival to a second day, which is to be headlined by the legendary Van Morrison.

Joining Saturday headliner Bob Dylan, the Northern Irish singer-songwriter will be headlining the festival on Sunday 19TH June 2011 at Finsbury Park.

Other acts that are confirmed are Bob Dylan, Christy Moore with Declan Sinnott, The Cranberries, Imelda May, The Waterboys, The Undertones, The Saw Doctors, Clannad, Horslips, Afro Celt Sound System, Nanci Griffith, Shane MacGowan, Sharon Shannon Big Band, Frankie Gavin & De Dannan, and The Fureys.

The festival takes place in Finsbury Park, London, on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th June 2011.

The Irish music festival, which celebrates 21 years of the best Irish and International music in Finsbury Park, will see exclusive UK performances by Bob Dylan and the newly reformed Irish rock band The Cranberries.

The band, who have had worldwide sales of over 40 million records with hits such as ‘Linger’, ‘Zombie’ and ‘Dreams’ have announced that this will be their only UK festival performance this year and bound to be one of the highlights of the festival calendar.

Vince Power, founder of the Mean Fiddler Group, Hop Farm Music Festival and operator of Benicassim Festival, was responsible for 14 Fleadh festivals at Finsbury Park, which was a staple on the London music calendar from 1990 until 2004.

Continuing on from where the Fleadh left off, London Feis steps in with a fresh outlook: Irish in flavour, international in reach.

Vince has hosted some of the biggest names in Irish and International music and the London Feis will be a celebration of all the acts Vince has worked with over the years.

Festival boss Vince Power said: “Because of the popularity of the first day and the number of bands wanting to play, we have had to extend the festival to a second day."

"I am delighted to confirm Van Morrison to headline the second night and this is shaping to be a great celebration.”

The festival will see the best Irish and International music has to offer on four stages at London’s Finsbury Park.

Tickets are available from See, HMV, Eventim, Lastminute.com and Gigantic.
