“We can’t wait to step on stage and perform at SO Festival,” said Dan Clark, songwriter and guitarist for Linclon’s The Moth Lantern, who played on the Emerging Icons stage during last year’s Olympic Games festivities.
“We love performing at festivals and this event looks set to be a blinder.”
Other acts include The Enclosed Garden, who are currently working on a new EP with their indie folk blend of Pearl Jam and Laura Marling inspired tunes.
Horncastle based Bevan will be bringing more mellow vibes with his tuneful assortment of acoustic folk, which has taken influence from a range of exotic sounds.
“I’m hugely excited to be a part of the BBC Introducing state at this year’s SO Festival,” said Bevan, whose talents have a already earned him a place on Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 Music Mix Tape and a support slot with former Idlewild singer Roddy Woomble earlier this year.
“BBC Introducing has been so valuable to me throughout my career and this great opportunity is testament to their unparalleled support of new music - Roll on SO Festival!”

Just back from their European tour, the talented threesome have been described as “so feel-good it’s unbelievable...catchy and memorable without being overly complicated...a real breath of fresh air.”
Talented teen Lizzie Goddard will also be performing a collection of acoustic songs from her soothing and soulful self-penned repertoire.
The 16-year-old Gainsborough girl has already generated thousands of Youtube hits for her tuneful music videos and hopes one day to emulate the likes of Adele or Katy Perry.
