UK promoter Kilimanjaro Live is to launch a new “indie and alternative sounds” festival called Neck of the Woods.
The one-day event will take place at Earlham Park in Norwich on Sunday 29 May with up to 14,000 fans.

DMN’s, Sea Girls, Dodie, Lottery Winners, Yonaka, Kawala, Crawlers and Stone are also slated to perform across three stages, with more acts to be announced in “due course”. Tickets for Neck of the Woods will be available from 28 January.
Kilimanjaro’s stable of outdoor events includes Kew the Music at Kew Royal Botanic Gardens and Live at Chelsea – both of which are in London – as well as Belladrum Festival in the highlands of Scotland.
Alongside Neck of the Woods, Earlham Park, located next to the University of East Anglia, is also due to host Let’s Rock Festival and concerts from Craig David and Simply Red this year.
