New music festival for Yate
A BIG new music festival will take place in Yate next year.
Yate Town Football Club will host the Good Times Music Festival, a two-day event featuring some of the best tribute acts in the country, in May.
Festival organiser James Murden said: “Tribute festivals are proving hugely popular around the UK and I truly feel that Yate deserves its own two-day event.
"I have personally scoured the country for some of the finest bands and I can’t wait to bring them to the event. I’m working with a local committee make this an annual event to remember.”
Technical designer Tom Campbell added: “We’re bringing a proper festival stage, complete with epic lighting rig and big screen, so audiences don’t miss a moment of the action.”
Some of the bands confirmed so far include QE2 (above), Absolute Bowie (main picture), Pure Jovi, Kingz of Leon, Foo Fighterz, Good Vibrations and The Blues Others (below), as well as local covers band For The Record.
The event will include a dedicated kids zone and promises a range of gourmet food offerings as well as local beers and ales, served in reusable plastic pint cups that all festival goers will be given in a bid to cut down on single-use plastic.
Good Times Music Festival will take place at Yate Town Football Club on May 23 and 24 2020 and early bird tickets are on sale now from GoodTimesYate.com.
