TOP music stars Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Busted and Olly Murs are set to headline next summer's Silverstone Festival, just over the county border. 

The event is held at the Silverstone motor racing circuit near Towcester and this year it will be part of the world-famous Northamptonshire track's 75th anniversary celebrations. 

Over the August 23 to 25 bank holiday weekend, the festival will feature motor sport and displays of classic cars, as well as music acts and food stalls. 

Pop star Olly Murs, who released hit songs Troublemaker, Heart Skips A Beat and Dance With Me Tonight, said: “I’m looking forward to this one. 

“Next year is huge for me and every show is going to be amazing, but there’s something about closing a festival that always gets me excited. See you all there.”

He will be joined by pop band Busted, whose songs include UK number-one singles Year 3000 and ‘What I Go To School For.

Busted said: “Silverstone Festival! We can’t wait to party with you next summer. There’s nothing we like more than belting songs with you all and we hope you’re all going to bring your A game.

Get ready Silverstone, Busted are coming.”

Sophie Ellis-Bextor said: “I can’t wait to see you all at the Silverstone Festival. I’ll have my dancing shoes on and you’d better too. Let’s have a party in the summer sunshine.”
