South West faves Reef, best known for their number 1 smash hit ‘Place your hands’, have been announced as the headline music act for the three-day long Human Race Festival of Sport 2012, alongside a host of Britain’s best music talent.

Reef will perform alongside a stellar line-up of music acts in front of the stunning backdrop of St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall on 14 – 15 September, 2012. Sportsmen and women, as well as music fans, will travel from all over the UK to attend the unique festival event in its debut year. Joinging Reef on the bill is the up and coming folk rock troupe, Dry the River. Since forming in 2009 the band have toured extensively in the UK and Europe including Glastonbury, Great Escape, iTunes Festival, Latitude, Summer Sundae, Green Man, Bestival and Reading and Leeds. Read our review of their Bristol gig, here.

It will feature a combination of triathlon, sportive cycling (long distance cycling road race), Open Water Swimming and a Beach Run throughout the day times. Alongside the main sporting activities, the Festival of Sport will deliver entertainment for both participants and visitors alike. Highlights will include live music and entertainment, locally sourced food by Jamie Oliver Fabulous Feasts, a beer tent and bar by Cornwall’s award-winning independent family brewers, St Austell Brewery, a Sporting Expo and athlete seminars. The event is raising money for Wings for Life, which funds ground breaking spinal cord injury research.
