StowFiesta is expanding into a weekend festival this year!
As usual, the festival will take place at Chilton Fields, Stowmarket and, as well as the music, there’ll be loads of stalls and free family attractions on both days.
We’ve already confirmed some acts for the Saturday:
The Downsetters – one of the best original ska bands in East Anglia
The Vagaband – one of the best Americana / folk bands in East Anglia
Albion Mills – a superb harmony-laden rock covers band specialising in music from 1966-1974
The Rock Hudsons – one of the best covers bands around, playing everything from Take That to Talking Heads!
There’ll be loads more to follow so please keep checking back!
Calling all young Stowmarket based bands!
We’re looking for a young Stowmarket based band and a young solo act to kick off StowFiesta 2017 on Saturday 24th June. If you’re 18 or under and are either in a band or a solo act based in Stowmarket and you’re interested in playing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a bit of information about you and a link to some live footage. Bands should be able to play a 30 minute set and solo acts a 25 minute set. We will aim to assess all the submissions and select a band and a solo act before the end of March.
Please note that other than these slots, StowFiesta is a proactively booked festival – that means that we research and select the bands ourselves, rather than invite applications. We are a fairly small festival with only a few slots and we’ve found that this is the most effective way of booking the lineup. If you do still email us applying to play, we will try to check you out – especially if you’re a local band – but we will only get back in touch with you if there’s s suitable slot available.
Give us a ‘like’ on Facebook! You can find us at www.facebook.com/stowfiesta. Come and give us a like, and we will keep you up to date with what’s happening with the 2017 fest as the date draws near.
