New headliners announced for Lincoln 2Q festival

The Twang will headline 2Q Lincoln after sickness forced the Mystery Jets to pull out of the festival.

As previously reported, the lead singer of the Mystery Jets Blaine Harrison said that he needed emergency surgery before pulling out of future gigs.

Organisers at 2Q festival said they were working hard to find a replacement before announcing The Twang on September 26.

The English indie rock band released their debut album ‘Love It When I Feel Like This’ which reached top three in the UK charts in 2007.
