Summer Sundae Weekender has expanded with Patrick Wolf, Gold Panda and more being added to the line up.

Held in the grounds of Leicester's De Montford Hall, Summer Sundae Weekender matches a family oriented atmosphere with a line up which pushes its way past genre boundaries.

Returning this summer, organisers recently announced another batch of acts for the line up. Expanding yet again, the Leicester event will welcome the latest incarnation of Patrick Wolf's flamboyant stage show.

A wonderful live performer, the English artist matches his back catalogue to an awareness of how to present his material in a visually engaging way. Returning to Summer Sundae Weekender, Patrick Wolf will be joined by the likes of soulful newcomer Lianne La Havas and international reggae collective The Black Seeds.

Another new name on the line up, Ghostpoet was responsible for one of 2011's most engaging debut albums. Nominated for the Mercury, the rapper's live show demonstrates a flexibility which a lot of MCs simply don't have.

Due to perform at Summer Sundae Weekender, Ghostpoet will be joined by Lewis Floyd Henry, Nottingham lads Dog Is Dead, Stay+ and Team Me.

Shy and retiring London producer Gold Panda is also set to take part. With 'Lucky Shiner' bowling over critics, the beatsmith was pushed into the live arena - something he was initially uncomfortable with.

Gaining in confidence, Gold Panda is now looking towards his second full length statement. Will he play new material at Summer Sundae Weekender? Time will tell...

Summer Sundae Weekender runs between August 17th - 19th. Line up so far:

ADAM ANT & THE GOOD THE BAD & THE LOVELY POSSE / AKALA / ASIAN DUB FOUNDATION / BILLY BRAGG CELEBRATES WOODY GUTHRIE’S 100th BIRTHDAY / THE BLACK SEEDS / CASHIER NO 9 / CLEAN BANDIT / DAN MANGAN / DATAROCK / DEATH IN VEGAS / DJANGO DJANGO / DOG IS DEAD / FRANCOIS AND THE ATLAS MOUNTAINS / FRIENDS / GHOSTPOET / GOLD PANDA / GOODNIGHT LENIN / GRACE PETRIE / HEY SHOLAY / HIP HOP SHAKESPEARE / JACK BEATS / JONATHAN RICHMAN / JUAN ZELADA / KATY B / THE KING BLUES / LAZY LESTER AND FRIENDS / LEWIS FLOYD HENRY / LIANNE LA HAVAS / LUCY ROSE / THE MAGIC TOMBOLINOS / MAYBESHEWILL / OCEAN COLOUR SCENE / OLUGBENGA (METRONOMY DJ) / PATRICK WOLF / PUBLIC IMAGE LIMITED / RACHEL SERMANNI / REVEREND AND THE MAKERS / STAY+ / SWAY / TEAM ME / TIM EDEY AND BRENDAN POWER / tUnE-yArDs / THE TWILIGHT SAD / UNCLE FRANK / WILLY MASON / Y NIWL
