ROCKINBEERFEST @ WOOD GREEN ANIMAL SHELTERS, GODMANCHESTER, AUGUST 17-20

THIS year's annual Rockinbeerfest festival is set to maintain the high standards set during 2004 and 2005 with a superb line up of musical talent, both national and local.

On a-50 acre site, with excellent camping and caravanning facilities, the Rockinbeerfest music festival features well over 30 bands performing music from a variety of genres, predominantly rooted in rock and blues, over four days, in the 3,000 capacity Indoor Arena.

For the first time, the Rockinbeerfest will host an additional night of music and beer. There is an extra event on Thursday night. RockTech (the original Cambridge-based Rock School) will be showcasing eight student bands, supported by four established bands from the rock and blues scene.

Families at the event can visit the Patchwork Circus where the most popular skills on show are juggling, diablo and plate spinning.

The festival site has a good general level of accessibility, including the restaurant. Dual staging side by side ensures fast band changeovers so you do not miss a single band - and all in an environment guaranteed to keep you dry no matter what the English summer brings us.
