Eurovision Song Contest flops Jemini are to appear at a leading music festival in front of 15,000 fans.

The Liverpool duo, who scored no points with their euro entry Cry Baby, have been added to the line up at Guilfest, a three-day festival being held at Guildford, Surrey from July 4.

Promoter Tony Scott says Gemma Abbey and Chris Cromby are now a "legendary" act despite the humiliation of finishing bottom in the Eurovision Song Contest in Latvia.

"I thought they would be an interesting addition to the bill - and it gives them a good opportunity to show people what they can really do."

More than 100 bands will be appearing at the festival, which is now in its 12th year, including Madness, Alice Cooper, the Stranglers and Atomic Kitten.

Radio 2 will be broadcasting live from the festival, which also features an "unsung heroes" stage for local bands and a comedy tent.
