Following on from years of growing success the Bridge Bash Music Festival is happening again!
This year’s event takes place over the weekend of July 15th – 17th and it promises to be a great one with three days of live music on three stages highlighting the best of local talent, established acts and newcomers. Opening night sees Simon Fowler & Oscar Harrison from Ocean Colour Scene performing an acoustic set with all their hits from on the main stage. Saturday night’s headline are Dodgy who had hits with ‘Staying out for the Summer, ‘If its good enough for you’ and many others, guaranteed to give the festival a happy upbeat vibe, and who have just released their new and long awaiting album.
Other acts include: Rase, The Establishment, The Crooked Empire, The Jellybean Rebellion, This Wicked Tongue, Nomad 67, Naked Remedy, V2a, Bob Dean, Miss Davina Lee plus a host of others appearing on the Session stage where up and coming acts are given the opportunity to get themselves on a large platform. Registration for the BOOM stage is available via the web site plus further information on all the acts and events over the weekend.
The Bash is not just about music, it is combined with a beer and cider festival with over 60 real ales, perrys and ciders. Running throughout the weekend are fun and games for all the family including music workshops, circus schools plus crafting displays and inflatable games .
Camping is provided in the cost of the ticket and there are numerous food outlets ranging from the standard burger and breakfast bars to tea tents and exotic food stalls. If you fancy a bit of luxury then we will also be having a cocktail bar situated on the Deckerdence bus along with an acoustic stage where you can sit in comfort with a nice glass of something.
Bridge Bash is a must for any festival lover. It’s the local highlight of the summer, small enough to be intimate and large enough to bring in the acts that make this weekend one not to be missed.
Ticket prices range from Friday night £30, Sat £35 and Sunday £10 or you can but a weekend ticket now for £65 (£75 on the gate)! Camping is included in your ticket price and children under 14 are free. Certainly value for money!!!
