Student Joe Rees will perform alongside the likes of The Charlatans and The Boomtown Rats at Godiva Festival.

He will be fronting the Paradise Tent in Coventry on Sunday (July 3) from 1pm-1.30pm.

Joe, who attends Princethorpe College, said: “I’m really looking forward to it.

“I haven’t yet decided on my set list but I know that I’ll definitely be playing my favourite song ‘Giving it Up,’ as part of the afternoon’s entertainment.”

For those who’ve already seen Joe play either live or on screen, there’s something irresistibly appealing about his performance. With his acoustic guitar held out against the auto tuned artifice of the pop world his heart lies elsewhere; ever willing to practise and play the music he loves.

Joe reels off the greats like The Smiths, Oasis and The Stone Roses as some of the influences he naturally absorbs.
