Dozens of bands at free fests
IT’S a double-header of town festivals this weekend with bands galore playing for free on your doorstep.
On Saturday Letchworth Festival has 30 bands playing across three stages and three Comet backed busker points across the town centre as part of the town’s Street Fest from 10am to 5pm.
Covering everything from reggae, rock, indie, soul, pop and blues there should be plenty to tickle your music stick.
Highlights include the home-grown young but mighty rocking Stereo Breakout, the heartbreaking P.P.Dog and the stunning mix of African vocals and Spanish rhythms of Randolph and Byron.
The following day, for the first time in its 42 year history Stevenage Day will feature a dedicated music stage on George V Playing Fields.
Thin Lizzy tribute act Pheel Lizzy head the billing along with JB3, All Against Nothing, Stereo Breakout, Here Comes The Blackout, Deuce Musik, Speedshot and Her Paradox making for a pretty classic rocking afternoon.
The music kicks off on the Sound Stage from 12.30pm to 5.40pm
