Annual Bures Music Festival returns with hopes of record turnout
Bures Music Festival gets under way this week – with hopes for another successful fundraising event and record turnout.
Now in its 23rd year, the not-for-profit festival has raised more than £200,000 for various charities and good causes since it started in 1997.
Organiser Marsha Moore said: “The festival will welcome Sunday headliners ska-reggae collective New Town Kings and funk act Soul Kitchen, as well as a host of brilliant acts.
“Fans of blues and rock can look forward to blues legends Nine Below Zero and Ian Siegal and his band.
“Guns N’ Roses tribute, Guns 2 Roses, and the world-touring Bon Giovi are set to raise the roof of the famous big top on Saturday,” she added.
“Back by popular demand, party band Funk 2K will take to the stage, along with RnB rock act The Long Run, and the amazing JS & The Lockerbillies.”
The festival prides itself on different types of music, from jazz and blues to rock and pop, showcasing internationally-known musicians, while supporting emerging acts and talent.
B-Fest is open to musicians between the ages of 11 and 19, and is held in the big top, giving young performers an opportunity to take part and perform on stage.
As well as music, the festival includes, stalls, food and drink, and a children’s area with bouncy castles.
