Penguin Cafe Orchestra also on the bill

Billy Bragg, Kid Creole, Neneh Cherry and the Penguin Café Orchestra will play London’s Apple Cart Festival, it was announced today. The one-day festival will be held in London’s Victoria Park on Sunday June 3rd, the day after we’ve all clobbered our brains and dusted our shoes at Field Day. Now in its second year The Apple Cart is run by the same people behind said festival (at which, of course, the Quietus is curating a stage) . The family friendly multi-disciplinary festival will feature music, cabaret, comedy and art. You can find out more on The Apple Cart Festival website.
