American rockers Wheatus are taking to the stage to celebrate the life of an "amazing" man who lost his life to Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
The band are leading a retro line-up at the annual LeeStock festival, which is held in memory of Lee Dunford who died from the disease in 2006.
They will be joined on stage by D:Ream, Nigel Clark from Dodgy and Mark Morriss of The Bluetones.
The June 3 festival will remember the 21-year-old and help raise funds for The Willow Foundation, which organises special days for seriously ill young adults.
The charity helped Lee realise his dreams by sending him and his band to a recording studio in London to create an EP.
Event organiser James Janzen said: "The event is to remember Lee who was an amazing guy, always putting others first, even when he was suffering most from his illness and tiring treatment."
"Lee's friends and family are thankful to the foundation for helping Lee fulfil an ambition of his and they have managed to raise over £25,000 over four years to help them continue their amazing work."
Lee's friend's have also taken part in fancy dress pub crawls, fun runs, and a relay swim equivalent to crossing the channel, to support the charity.
LeeStock takes place at The MEL Group Stadium, Kings March, Brundon Lane, in Sudbury on June 3. For tickets visit http://www.gigantic.com, The White Horse in North Street, Sudbury, or the Tourist Information Centre at the town hall, in Market Hill, Sudbury.
