It's time to dust off the sequins and dig out the spandex - because Let's Rock has announced it will be back next summer with a stellar line-up. 

The retro festival has revealed a programme packed full of eighties pop icons.

Headliner Billy Ocean, best known for hits like Caribbean Queen and Love Really Hurts Without You said: “I genuinely love playing Let’s Rock, the atmosphere is always brilliant.

"Ten thousand crazy fans singing your songs back to you – what could be better?”

Early bird tickets sold out in record time this year - within just a day of going live. 

Let’s Rock organisers Nick Billinghurst and Matt Smith said: “We’ve been humbled by the loyalty and passion of the Let’s Rock family who have stuck with us through what has been an incredibly challenging couple of years.

Earlham Park was teeming with thousands of people at this year's festival in September, with people donning denim jackets, colourful suits and ankle warmers to dance to eighties hits. 

Alongside the headliners, you can enjoy the punk-tinged pop of Scritti Politti, the Caribbean disco of Kid Creole and the two-tone ska of The Selecter.

Other artists confirmed include Tom Bailey of the Thompson Twins, Nick Heyward, Nik Kershaw, Men Without Hats, Sydney Youngblood, The Gibson Brothers, Tenpole Tudor, Sonique, Urban Cookie Collective and Ottawan.
