ROCKINBEERFEST - FULL LINE-UP
ONE of the highlights of this year's local summer gigging schedule is the classic rock festival, Rockinbeerfest, at Wood Green Animal Shelters in Godmanchester.
Although the name of the festival hints at a rock theme, there seems to be plenty of other genres to keep people happy - the ska of Big 10, quirky pop of Dear Old Blighty or the funkiness of one of the headliners - The Blockheads.
A day before the festival, there is the big Rocktech event at the same venue; where the youngsters who have been taught during the week will get to play a short set each. Admission for that concert is free for those who are already attending the main festival. The full line-up is:
THURSDAY AUGUST 17
Rocktech gig, featuring several young bands, a set by the instructors, a Rory Gallagher tribute act Raw Gallagher, Highway 5 Blues Band and popular covers band Stingray.
