Black Country Communion, Jethro Tull, Spock's Beard, Caravan and Mostly Autumn have been added to the bill of Classic Rock's award-winning High Voltage Festival, which takes place at Victoria Park in East London on July 23-24.

Now into its second year, HV won the Best Festival Award (15,000-39,999 capacity) in the Live UK Music Business Awards and was voted the Festival Of 2010 by Planet Rock Radio listeners.

In 2011 we're making things better still with the introduction of a ticket deposit scheme which spreads the cost of a ticket over two payments. General Admission and WIP weekend tickets can be purchased with an initial ?50 deposit plus booking fee, with the final payment due on June 1.

The above artists join previously announced headliners Judas Priest (whose farewell spot will close the show on Saturday night) and Dream Theater. The latter have begun recording a new album with guitarist John Petrucci acting as producer. It will be their first album without Mike Portnoy, who quit DT recently.

Black Country Communion are recording their second album with producer Kevin Shirley, which will be available in time for the HV show. "We're all super-stoked to appear" says Hughes. "This year's HV will be a rock'n'roll extravaganza, which suits us just fine."

Admission to the High Voltage Festival is ?99 for a weekend ticket and ?56.50 for a day tickets, subject to booking fee. VIP tickets will be available at ?105 for the day ?199 for the weekend, subject to booking fee. There will also be various VIP and hotel packages available, at various price levels to suit different pockets.
