Heavyweight ska legends Bad Manners will be headlining the Dartford Festival this weekend. The two-day free festival on Saturday, July 16, and Sunday, July 17, will be packed with music acts on two stages and a funfair throughout the weekend.

On the main stage will be 1980s singer Toyah, Bad Manners, The Hoosiers and 4th Impact, along with a string of other acts over the two days. There will also be a Battle of the Bands throughout the weekend with local groups competing for a slot on the main stage.

This year the festival celebrates its 80th birthday. The annual shindig in Central Park has been providing free family fun since 1936. Up to 25,000 people turned up for the two-day event last year, and this year the council are expecting to welcome even more. The extravaganza will also feature a fairground with £1 rides, a licensed bar and a 6D cinema.
