NEW ADDITIONS TO THE FESTIVAL LINE-UP!
This week’s new additions come in the form of the brilliant Set Your Goals, pop-punk legends Hit The Lights, fast-rising British rockers Francesqa and dub-step act, Tek One.
Festival Promoter Ben Ray says, “I am extremely pleased to have two of the star bands from last year, Set Your Goals and Hit the Lights return for this year’s event. They said they had so much fun last year, it was hard to keep them away! Francesqa are definitely one of my new favourite bands and are doing so well at the moment.The fact that they won the competition to play Slam Dunk last year, shows the public and the judging panel know how to spot talent early on!! Hopefully we will have the same luck with this year’s competition (details to be announced shortly) Tek One are amazing live and will definitely push the party levels up a notch. They also show the scene’s boundaries are endless!”
All of the above join the following bands already confirmed for the festivals: Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, 3oh!3, The Starting Line, We Are The Ocean, Goldfinger, Anti-Flag, Mayday Parade, Deaf Havana, Framing Hanley, Versa Emerge, Rocket To The Moon, We Are The In Crowd, Innerpartysystem and Decade.
