Lifesigns, Magenta, Lazuli, Quill and Franck Carducci have all been confirmed for this year's Fusion Festival. The event, which is now in its third year, began life as a one-day event headlined by Godsticks. Last year they expanded to three days and have continued the format for this year's event.

Also featured are Quill, who feature former ELO drummer Bev Bevan and former IQ men Andy Edwards and John Jowitt. Edwards describes the band as the, "more proggy end of Bevan's career with ELO, The Move and Black Sabbath". Also confirmed are Maschine, Kyros, The Paradox Twin, That Joe Payne, Leafblade and more.

Fusion 2020 takes place at Stourport Civic Centre between March 20-22. Tickets begin at £20 for the Friday, £35 for both Saturday and Sunday and are £80 for the whole weekend. Tickets are available now.
