“Clifton Park is a fabulous location, and the festival will bring a feel-good factor to the start of the summer.”

This year’s festival acts will include tributes to Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters and U2, along with five lucky local support bands.

The 10th anniversary celebrations will be going on all day and night, and there will be a main bar inside the marquee, and a variety of food and entertainment stalls in the outside arena.
