TOUCH Down Festival has undoubtedly the most impressive line-up in its four-year history, with acts travelling from around the country to be at this weekend's event in Workington.

The stage splits have been announced, taking place across two stages in Bart's and one in Lounge 41 - both in Jane Street - with music getting under way at 3pm.

Promising Whitehaven indie act The Northern Threads follow at 4.45pm, with Surry pop punk outfit Homebound at 6.15pm, and highly-rated Manchester band Milestones taking to the stage at 7.45pm.

Cumbrian rock 'n' rollers Hardwicke Circus appear from 9.10pm, before the night's headliners Mallory Knox round things off from 11pm until midnight.

This year, the acoustic stage also moves up to Bart's, with performances taking place in between the sets on the main stage.

Daniellá Clarke kicks off the Pat McNichol Stage proceedings at 3pm, followed by hotly-tipped youngsters Simone Armstrong, at 4.10pm, and Ben Rowlands, at 5.25pm.
