Bands are tuning up for Glaston-Bury
BANDS are tuning up in preparation for the popular Bank Holiday Monday Glaston-Bury music festival which promises to be even bigger and better than ever before.
More than 100 acts will perform on 13 stages at 12 venues throughout the town between noon and midnight.
Since the musical extravaganza was launched in 2008, it has raised more than £40,000 for Bury Hospice.
Held every year on the August Bank Holiday Monday, Glaston-Bury is a showcase of local musical talent.
But it’s been so successful that other artists from further afield have been begging to play.
The Met in Bury will feature two stages for acts and the other 11 venues are: The Blind Tiger, Wyldes, The Two Tubs, Brambles, Art Picture House, Molloys, Pics Bar, The Elizabethan Suite, Bar 101, U Bar and Pizza Pioneer.
Glaston-Bury has expanded significantly since its debut in 2008 when only one venue was used.
Since then, the festival has extended to embrace more venues and bands.
This year’s line-up will feature some well-known names, including guitar legend Aziz Ibrahim who played with Stone Roses and Ian Brown, 1990s Hacienda rave act Together while headlining the tribute stage will be Megadeth UK.
Also taking part will be Crispy Ambulance, who are reforming for a one-off performance.
Organiser Chris Buckley said: “We have stated from the start that Glaston-Bury will be bigger and better every year and this year is the biggest to date.
There will be 13 stages of quality acts, a great representation of Bury’s musical talent coming together for this very special day in aid of Bury Hospice.”
Admission is £6 and wristbands are available on the day from The Met foyer or The Elizabethan Suite which will be showcasing metal bands during Glaston-Bury.
