TALENTED artists from across the region are promising to put on a show to remember at a music festival for the whole family this weekend.
The long awaited Gladefest is coming to Rosliston Forestry Centre between 2pm and 11pm on Saturday.
Held on the Glade outdoor arena, 15 up-and-coming acts will supply eight hours of non-stop music over two separate stages.
Visitors can expect everything from foot stomping folk to acoustic to rock ‘n’ roll to ballads to psychedelic rock.
Headlining the main stage is the Burton-based The Roz Bruce Infusion, who played their unique brand of alternative rock at the first Gladefest last year to much acclaim.
Headlining the Acoustic Stage is Julia Mosley, a gifted singer and songwriter renowned for her hauntingly beautiful voice. Other acts include Tilted Smile, a fast, edgy rock ‘n’ roll trio that have shared the bill in the UK with well known names such as Feeder.
They will be joined by Wildfire Folk, Green Fortune, Fantastik4, The Nanateas, Doomsday Outlaw, The Tribal Vibes and more besides.
Paul ‘Lavy’ Latham, one of the event organisers, said: “The music never stops at Gladefest. As one act finishes, another one starts, so it is pretty much paradise to music lovers.
“We are really looking forward to it this year and hope everyone else is too.”
A bar and barbecue are available. Wristbands cost just £10 for adults, £5 for under 18s and nothing for those aged under four.
