Beach Boys founder Brian Wilson and metal band Motorhead will headline this year's Guilfest music festival in July, organisers have announced.

Singer Lemmy Kilmister will perform with his band on Friday 10 July, with Wilson appearing the following day.

"This will be a rare chance to catch a true musical legend - in all senses of the word - headline the main stage," said organisers, about Wilson.

Held in Stoke Park near Guildford, the event has been running since 1992.

Last year's festival, attended by 20,000 visitors on each of its three days, saw veteran rock act Blondie top the bill.

The event has two main stages, dance and rock tents, unsigned talent venues and children's entertainment.
