“I can’t wait to see Sigue Sigue Sputnik perform live because Martin Degville is a pretty fabulous visual character with all the masks, wigs, feathers and also Owen Paul.

“He’ll be playing a hit he had in 1986, which was one of my favorite songs when I was a teenager, I played it on my Sony Walkman.

“We have some great artists on the program including Duran Duranish who was chosen as my producer for my radio show and my friend Graham who sadly passed away on Boxing Day so sadly he won’t be there to see them .

The 80s On the Farm festival will be in its second year and it is hoped that it will become an annual event, stretching across the musical decades of the 1990s and 2000s to cater to more tastes.

There will also be a funfair on site, food stalls and a licensed bar.

Mr Gurney said: “It will be a great family day filled with brilliant 80s songs.

“Don’t hesitate to come dressed in your best 80s outfits!”
