BBC Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans has revealed the first acts for his 2018 summer festival CarFest.

The family festival is back for its seventh year next August and the first confirmed acts include 80s icons Bananarama, The Feeling, Status Quo, Jools Holland, Peter Kay and The Proclaimers.

For the foodie fans, Joe Wicks, Nadiya Hussain, Candice Brown and Atul Kochhard will join festival favourite Tom Kerridge in the CarFest Kitchen.

Car fanatics will be able to get their fix with a car bungee that has never been attempted before in the UK, whilst Car-Topia will transport you in to the future of cars. The Car Paddock is back, celebrating the very best convertibles, coupes, grand tourers, saloons, shooting breaks and sports cars. Take a trip to Oktoberfest that will transport you to an authentic German Village featuring a wonderful display of the best German cars themed amongst a Bavarian beer hall with traditional food, music and entertainment.

CarFest North will be kicking things off July 27- 29 and CarFest South will take place the following month, August 24- 26. Set in the rolling landscapes of Bolesworth Estate, Cheshire and Laverstoke Park Farm, Hampshire, the two family festivals promise to be bigger and better than ever for 2018.

In the last six years the two annual events have raised £10.5 million for BBC Children in Need, whilst entertaining more than 600,000 festival-goers of all ages with its unique and wonderfully eclectic mix of music, cars, food and fun. Book your tickets now:
