The organisers of the sixth annual Buckfest are expecting hundreds of people to attend the event on July 18.
More than 20 bands have been booked to play across three stages at Buckden Village Club and the festival will raise money for the venue and the Magpas charity.
The festival aims to promote local music talent, and Walkway, who are currently supporting Status Quo, are headliners. Bedford’s blues-rock group Pearl Handled Revolver are also playing and the event will be opened by Buckden’s Battle of the Bands winner Hollowstar.
Attractions include Peterborough Playbus, food and drink and trade stall as well as 10 hours of music.
“From small beginnings, Buckfest has grown into a popular event for families and music lovers alike - thanks to the drive and determination of Rick Holden (Buckfest chairman) and a small, dedicated team of volunteers,” said Buckfest volunteer Nicky Warnock.

“I’m proud to be a part of it, come along and see what a great event it is. It’s a really great little festival, ideal for families with kids, and music lovers, of course.”
