Come and join us for our 80's Weekender Extravaganza!
Soft Cell, Duran Duran, A-Ha!, Spandau Ballet, Depeche Mode, ABC, Gary Numan, Tears For Fears, Frankie Goes To Hollywood........the list goes on!
We are transforming the Severn Stage into an 80's night club, complete with props, a light up dance floor, backdrops, drapes, light up tables, and a ghetto blaster DJ console!
Open from 20.00 to midnight, Friday & Saturday, we have the tuneage being banged out by our resident 'Master of Funk', ANDEEJAY, and a great line-up to entertain you:
Friday: Playing in the style of all the bands mentioned above (and more), we welcome on to the stage the masters of the 80's tribute - FLASHBACK TO THE EIGHTIES, a five piece multi instrument band who sound just like the originals!
Saturday: This is going to be unbelievable! Our special guest is none other than the good Doctor himself - CLIVE JACKSON from Dr & The Medics.
Clive will be spinning the discs with his own 80's disco, assisted by our stunning Disco Dancers, and ending up with a live performance of Spirit in the Sky to end the evening. Be there or be square!
THE BUSFEST HUB
Over 2000 square metres of undercover entertainment, a bar, cafe, massive seating & table area, a full stage with sound and lighting, and a residency from our friends at VDub Radio!
Following on from the rip-roaring success of the VDUB Radio Roadshow last year, this year, we are going bigger and better! We are moving the stage into the North section of The HUB, and flipping it sideways to create a massive area for you all to get down and funky. The South section will have lots of seating, food and bars, and will be a great place to pop in, meet friends, or while away some time listening to the music, on your way around the festival.
As well as operating a 24 hour radio station from the stage (available online at vdubradio.com), there will be a full live DJ set from midday to midnight on Friday & Saturday, and 10.00 to 15.00 on Sunday.
The full DJ line-up will be announced soon.
THE SHEEP SHED STAGE.
Our open air Rock & Alternative stage that has a loyal following. Full line-up to be announced, but, as Devious run this stage for us, it's safe to assume that they'll be headlining on Saturday night!
The SHEEP SHED is our open air 'Rock' stage, which has gained a reputation for outstanding rock and alternative acts, some of whom have gone on to become well known on the music circuit.
9:30 - 21:00 - TBA
21:30 - 23:00 - TBA
19:30 - 21:00 - TBA
21:30 - 23:00 - Devious
LARGER THAN LIFE..... NO ONE EVER FORGETS DEVIOUS
The Sheep Shed has it's own Facebook page HERE and advertises it's line up on there. Failing that, you can just 'rock' up and join in the fun and see who is playing at the time!
THE CHILL STAGE. (FAMILY & DOG FRIENDLY STAGE)
Situated at the south end of the MAIN ARENA the CHILL STAGE is the Ideal venue to have a picnic or just relax & watch some of the best “Folk Rock” (and Rock Folk) you will find anywhere.
Our laid-back, chill-out stage, set in the 'Dingly Dell' with canopies, twinkly lights and chilled vibes. Full line-up to be announced soon, but will include the likes of Tom Dibb, Druids Brew, the VDUB Radio Chill Sessions, and guest appearances.
Solo or with Full Band, Get set for a beautifully gutsy performance, as Tom tells his stories with undertones of blues, roots and folk, grown through a forest of soaring acoustic goodness.
A world tour and self drive expedition in his 1989 vw campervan all the way from the UK to Australia in 2016, lay the foundations and inspiration for much of his material.
It fits into mainstream molds, yet also satisfies a deeper creative taste.
We welcome Tim & the Druids (and JAY & SIDESHOW BOB) back to the CHILL ZONE STAGE at BUSFEST.
They will be sharing their brew, including material from their NEW Album.
WEEKEND TIMETABLE FOR THE CHILL STAGE
