A line up of top up-and-coming international artists will be playing at GoldCoast Oceanfest in Croyde this June, it has been announced.

Joining The Magic Numbers during the summer solstice weekend of Friday, June 18 to Sunday 20 will be fast emerging US solo star Joshua Radin, whose single I'd Rather Be With You has been notching up the airplay hours on Radio One and is set for release on April 12.

A unique word-of-mouth global success story, Radin's brand of acoustic folk has appealed widely to American TV and has been heard on the likes of Grey's Anatomy, American Idol and One Tree Hill, to name a few.

Also appearing at the surf, lifestyle and music festival is Joe brooks, a young British singer songwriter who may as yet be unsigned, but has gathered a strong internet following, with 12 million plays on My Space and plays to sold out shows in America and Europe.

Friday's headliner Gideon Conn is quirky and breathtaking from start to finish, by all reports. He is supported by Croyde's very own legendary funk-ska reggae outfit The Universe Inspectors.
