DARTINGTON Hall hosts two days of top-quality music tomorrow and on Saturday when 20 of the UK's top breakthrough acts take to the stage.

Bands and artists will cover styles including folk, pop and rock.

Tomorrow's line-up features Paper Aeroplanes, The PJP Band, Mae and The Midnight Fairground, The Cadbury Sisters, Bert Miller and The Animal Folk, Kimberley Anne, Miniature Dinosaurs, Megan Henwood, Magic Bus and Jack Martello.

On Saturday you can see Ryan Keen, Karima Francis, Sound of the Sirens, Liz Lawrence, House of Hats, Rebecca Mayes, The Lights, Morning Rush, Dana Immanuel and Saturday Sun.

Some of the bands will be familiar to followers of the local music scene, among them Bert Miller, Ryan Keen and Sound of the Sirens, all of whom have built up a sizeable local following through their live performances.

Ryan Keen combines his flamenco percussive style guitar playing with great lyrics and warm vocals.

He has toured with Newton Faulkner and twice with his friend Ed Sheeran.

Paper Aeroplanes are Richard Llewellyn and Sarah Howells, a high-flying folk/pop duo who are inspired by their small town origins in West Wales.

The PJP Band played on the coveted BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury 2011, and then spent a staggering near 40 hours as the 'most shared' act on BBC Glastonbury's website homepage (beating Ed Sheeran and Wu Tung Clan).
