The Cambridge Club Festival has announced the first acts to join its dance-inspired line-up for 2022 - including pop, soul, funk and disco legends.
Global superstar headliners Lionel Richie, Diana Ross and Nile Rodgers & CHIC will perform at the family-friendly festival in Childerley Orchard.
The weekend of music, arts and culture takes place from Friday, June 10 to Sunday, June 12 next year, with pre-sale tickets available from November 10.
A four-time Grammy winner, Lionel Richie is guaranteed to have everyone dancing All Night Long on the Saturday, with his catalogue of albums across a glittering career. And Billboard's female entertainer of the century Diana Ross will perform a setlist of timeless hits for the ultimate singalong to close the show on Sunday.
Saturday night's special guests are Nile Rodgers & CHIC, whose classic live show boasts a string of number one hits.
Further acts announced include Corinne Bailey Rae, Gabrielle, and Sara Cox - who will offer a nostalgia party like no other with her 'Just Can't Get Enough 80s' show.
Meanwhile friends of the festival Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club, Trevor Nelson and Uncle Funk's Disco Inferno are back to get everyone dancing.

A wide variety of food and drink will also be available - representing cuisines from all over the world.
The festival's MD William Young said: "We are honoured to be welcoming such iconic artists to The Cambridge Club next year.
"Since we started out, these were some of the dream names on our list, so we're absolutely blown away to be able to announce them.
"It's the most apt and exciting line-up we could have wished for following the breakout success of last year."
