Wakestock, Europe's largest wakeboarding and music festival, has announced Groove Armada, The Streets, Supergrass, Funeral for a Friend, The Hoosiers, Hadouken, Young Knives, Metronomy, Jazzie B and Audio Bullys as just a few of its performers this year. As well as the 9th year at Abersoch, Wales from 4th - 6th July, Wakestock has announced a second music festival date in the grounds of Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, from 27th - 29th June.

"2008 is going to be the Year of Wakestock!" says Wakestock Founder, Mark Durston. "We've built the festival up over the last 8 years in Abersoch to be a really cool mix of the world's best wakeboarders, bands & DJ's right at the forefront of the live music scene and a lifestyle that is unrivalled by any other festival! With the help of Stuart Galbraith, CEO of Kilimanjaro, to develop the festival and to add a second venue as stunning as Blenheim Palace was an opportunity we've relished. The grounds at Blenheim Palace, as a festival venue, are first class. Add to this a stunning lake sat right in front of the Palace and you have the perfect setting to showcase the coolest sport on water".
