The Balstock charity music festival is just a week away now, with 200 acts set to bring the noise for the 11th year running on 12 stages around Baldock.
There will be live music at almost all the pubs, in the High Street and more – with lovers of ska, punk, folk and reggae alike sure to find something for them.
The fiercely independent volunteer-run festival rumbles from Friday to Sunday next week, with the acts ranging from local talent such as country duo Darline to visitors from Spain and the Netherlands.
And organiser G La Roche told the Comet that fans can expect a blistering time at this year’s Balstock.
“It’s been a tough year all round, where Balstock nearly didn’t happen,” he said.

“But with my loyal team of volunteers, music fanatics and festival friends, it all looks like it’s going to be a grand, noisy and rambunctious spectacle.
“We ask all punters to please give generously to all our charity causes and give massive doses of admiration to all the acts who perform at Balstock for free.”
