Preview of Stonedeaf Festival 2019
STONEDEAF FESTIVAL have upped their game for the second iteration of the event and are proud to announce that GLENN HUGHES, the ‘Voice of Rock’, will be headling at the Newark Showground on Saturday, 24th August 2019 performing his ‘Classic Deep Purple’ show which impressed many when he was here in Manchester recently.
This is a one day, one stage, hard rock festival and has already been cited as one of the UK’s friendliest rock festivals and is already achieving a fabulous reputation. It has also won the ‘New Wave of Classic Rock - Festival of the Year 2018'.’
Inglorious, who have undergone some dramatic changes recently but we are sure they will put on a performance that we are sure will prove popular as their latest album shows they are on a rocking trajectory.
The last special guest to be added to the bill brings a touch of Welsh Rock Royalty to proceedings - we are sure that Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons will perform a cracking set as Motörhead’s lead guitarist really needs no introduction and are an great live band.
Wayward Sons, are formed out of a need to play live music by singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer Toby Jepson. The band use current social issues to provide thought provoking lyrics, when you add in add in a powerful mix of heavy rocking guitars, and very catchy riffs. The band burst onto the heavy rock scene with a pedigree of musicians that screams ability and quality.
One of the legendary voices of metal, Geoff Tate, formerly lead singer with Queensrÿche, is regarded as one of the most skilled rock vocalists in the world. Tate is set to captivate and mesmerise the Stonedeaf crowd with his breathtaking performance with a best of Operation Mindcrime set - we are hoping for a stellar performance of Silent Lucidity.
Few bands from the era of NWoBHM are cited as influencing musicians and bands as much as Diamond Head have. The band will bring to the stage their timeless heavy metal sound - we can already hear Am I Evil calling us!
The Amorettes, a favourite band of ours here at Manchester Rocks, are a lean mean Rock and Roll Machine, bring great riffs, songs and a fantastic energy to the stage. Prepare to get ‘Hot and Heavy’!
Massive (Aus), who recently played a devastating set here in Manchester, are a modern volatile hard rock engine, fuelled on adrenaline, passion for Rock’n’Roll and beer, well they are Australian so woudn’t give a XXXX for anything else…. really!
The winners of the Opening Poll Competition are the multinational yet Dublin based Samarkind who will bring their bluesy feel, hard rock when they open the Tommy Vance Stage.
It is a stellar line-up that aims to excite both classic and new rock fans in one great day, with one stage where the music will be loud, the beer and food will be priced competitively and you will be able to camp and park just 5 minutes from the arena which is ideal.
The festival is organised by volunteers, created for the fans by the fans and is a festival experience not to be missed.
