IN JUST one week more than 1,000 people will descend on Lady Heyes Craft Centre for the first ever Frodsham Music Festival.
Headlined by monstrous rockers The Automatic, the weekend festival will see 13 bands play over two days in the latest addition to Cheshire’s musical line up.
Organiser Mark Rowland said: “It is all systems go. We have got a few different traders, including henna tattoos, and we have the caterers from Reading Festival.
“We have also added a few bands to the line up, Sgt Wolfbanger who supported McFly in Northwich and Eight Wave who supported Lemar at Wigan’s JJB Stadium.
“Ticket sales are picking up, especially after Creamfields, there’s a lot of interest and we are expecting more than 1,000 people.”
Frodsham Music Festival will be staged on fields at Lady Heyes Craft Centre, Frodsham, from Saturday, September 6, and revellers will be able to camp out on the site from Friday.
As well as pulling in big names like The Automatic, who made the UK top 20 with their new single Steve McQueen last weekend, organisers also plan to make the festival a showcase for the best in emerging talent.
Other acts lined up include Liverpool band Amsterdam, The Cordels, Alexis Blue, The Verdict, Ruck and The Ravens, and The Violent Playground.
Tickets are £30 and camping is £10 for three nights. For details and tickets, visit www.frodshamfestival.co.uk
