A THREE-DAY music festival with a line-up of more than 200 artists is hoping to raise tens of thousands of pounds for charity in Denbigh.

Denbigh River Festival will be staged at Cae Dai Estate, Denbigh, in May and has already confirmed a number of artists, including headliner DJ Jamie Trippier, who performed at major dance music festival Creamfields in 2015.

The line-up will also feature local bands such as Snowdonian reggae group Tuf kingdom, rock band The Scapegoats and indie jammers Terry and The Supercools.

It is hoped the festival capacity of 1,500 people will be reached once tickets and the full line-up listings become available at the end of January.

The festival was founded by Glynn McIntyre, owner of McIntyre's Retro Sweets in Denbigh, who believes it will not only "put Denbigh on the map" but raise a substantial amount of money for charities in the area.

Mr McIntyre said: "There has been an amazing amount of support for the festival already, it has exceeded what we expected.

"Raising money for charity is the underlying reason for starting the festival but it will also help to put Denbigh on the map and bring value back into the town.

"Denbigh should have a properly organised music festival and we are hoping to do it every year."

The festival will be hosted at the 60-acre Cae Dai riverside estate belonging to museum owner Sparrow Harrison.

The funds raised by the festival will be donated to the the Cae Dai Trust, Denbigh Infirmary, Denbighshire Citizens Advice Bureau and the Denbigh-based Welsh Ambulance Service Trust.

Alongside the music there will be circus performances, fire-breathing acts and a children's area featuring a mermaid and facepaint artists.

There will also be food vendors by local business and options such as pizza and Jamaican chicken. Vegetarian and vegan options will be provided.

The festival will take place between Friday, May 3 and Sunday, May 5.

On-site camping will also be available.

Further information about ticket prices, times and a full-line up will be announced by the Denbigh River Festival at the end of January.
