Blackheath expects autumnal Madness

Madness will co-headline an iconic London music festival this autumn.

The veteran ska band, famous for hits such as Our House and Baggy Trousers, reminded people they are also famous for their wacky headwear too.

Band members Mark Bedford and Chris Foreman wore stylish hats during a photocall to publicise the 2015 On Blackheath event. Madness said via a statement they wished to thank Blackheath's people for inviting them there.

The south-east London show, being staged on the weekend of September 12 and 13, will also welcome the Manic Street Preachers and Elbow as headliners.

In addition, Laura Mvula, Anna Calvi and Kelis will be appearing. A food village and pop-restaurants should add to the appeal of the event, which is allowing in children under 12 for free.

Last year the Blackheath Common concert featured stars such as Frank Turner, Future Islands, Massive Attack and Grace Jones.

Tickets, which went on sale from February 20, start from £45 for adults.
