An unsigned pop-punk band from Norfolk have secured a prestigious slot at this year's Glastonbury Festival.

Fever Fever will play the BBC Introducing Stage on Friday, 24 June.

The group were put forward for the festival after being championed by new music radio show BBC Introducing in Norfolk, on BBC Radio Norfolk.

The stage will be headlined by Suffolk's Ed Sheeran - another regular on the new music programme - who has gone on to national success.

"We're all so thrilled, it's like a dream come true," said Rosie Arnold from the band.

"It's one of those lifetime ambitions. We've all gone separately in years gone by and it's just the most insane place.

"I just can't believe we're actually going to be performing there, it's one of the best places in the entire world."

The Norwich three-piece have performed at a number of high-profile festivals this year including Camden Crawl and South by Southwest (SXSW) in Texas, where they befriended musician Jack White from The White Stripes.

The three-piece are currently recording their debut album and plan to release a single in September.
