DOUBLE-platinum selling band The Hoosiers are to headline at a mini-music festival in Sussex Coast College.

Tickets costing just £5 for the Sublime festival on Thursday, July 17, went on sale to the public this week and are already being snapped up by fans.

The Hoosiers, whose first single Worried About Ray reached number five in the UK charts, will play an extended set in the atrium at the Station Plaza campus.

They will be supported by Hastings band Dorey the Wise and the college band, and DJ Lady D will provide music to keep up the party atmosphere between performances.

Principal Clive Cooke said: “We are really excited to welcome The Hoosiers to the college and cannot wait to see them perform in our stunning atrium.

“It’s quite a coup for us to secure such a well-known band for this year’s festival which is going to be even bigger and better than last year. We are pleased to welcome back popular local band Dorey the Wise too.

“Tickets are sure to sell fast so music fans should book soon to avoid disappointment.”

The Hoosiers’ debut album The Trick to Life reached number one in the UK charts in 2007 and went double platinum. Their second single Goodbye Mr A peaked at number four, and appeared in the film Juno.

The band from Reading are currently on a UK tour with their comeback album The News From Nowhere – their first release after splitting with record label Sony in 2011.

The entry fee for the live music extravaganza includes a wristband, Subway sandwich, two drinks and photographs at a fun photobooth.

Food and drink will also be on sale.

Doors open at 6pm and the event finishes at 8.30pm.
