The countdown has begun to LEWESLIVE, a two-day musical festival previously known as Rock in the Bog, in Lewes.The weekend kicks off on Friday, July 11, at 7pm with four bands booked.
Headlining are Four Fighters, a Foo Fighters tribute band with a passion to recreate the sound of the now legendary Dave Grohl-fronted American supergroup.
Saturday, July 12, sees seven bands on stage starting from 2pm. From local band Scott Free to the headline act for the weekend Hayseed Dixie, there’s something for everyone – rock, reggae, ska, Americana and of course rockgrass.
Hayseed Dixie are known for performing a mixture of cover versions of hard rock songs and original compositions in a style that is a unique fusion of bluegrass and rock music. They are acknowledged as the creators of the musical genre ‘rockgrass’. The group has played almost every major European folk and rock music festival, including a Main Stage appearance in 2005 at Glastonbury.
Previously likened to the early days of Glastonbury, LEWESLIVE aims to offer the same great quality and atmosphere as previous years, but to be the biggest and best yet. In addition to all the great music on offer there will be family attractions, food providers, licensed bars and free camping for all ticket holders.
Ticket prices start from just £20. More details, the full line up and tickets outlets can be found at www.leweslive.com
