MANY MORE BANDS TO BE ANNOUNCED!
Prepare yourself for an entire day of Live Music, cheap drinks, and most importantly raising money for a great charity, The Sophie Lancaster Foundation. With music to fit everyone from Pop Punk and Indie Rock to Thrash Metal.
Ten years ago, in August 2007, 20-year-old Sophie Lancaster & her boyfriend were brutally attacked – for nothing more than being goth and looking “different”. Sophie later died from her injuries. After consulting family and friends, her boyfriend felt that a charity should be set up in Sophie's name. The charity, known as The Sophie Lancaster Foundation, focuses on creating respect for and understanding of subcultures in our communities.
Featuring local food vendors to fulfill all of your hunger needs.
