Headline Bands and Special Guests playing over the weekend

The Dust Coda

Founded in the melodic prowess of Adam Mackie (lead guitar), John Drake (vocals, rhythm guitar) & completed by the rugged groove of Scott Miller (drums) and Tony Ho (bass guitar), the band thundered into the Rock scene with unforgettable riffs and gravel-soaked vocals.

Bad Touch

A 5-piece classic rock band from Norfolk. Bad Touch owe the core of their sound to their surroundings. Those formative years of listening to the likes of Led Zeppelin, Free and Lynyrd Skynyrd whilst looking out on the rolling countryside and hard-working people gave them an escape to help create their infectious blend of rock, country and blues. 

Scarlet Rebels

In 2018, singer-songwriter Wayne Doyle, powerhouse drummer (& brother) Gary Doyle and harmonic bassist Wayne ‘Pricey’ Esmonde we’re joined by blistering lead guitarist Chris Jones and on second guitar/keyboards, Josh Townshend, the nephew of rock icon Pete Townshend.


A reputation for delivering no nonsense, gutsy, classic sounding British rock music played with passion and conviction, the band have steadily built a strong following throughout the UK.
