Towcester Mill Brewery's beer garden is set to be jam-packed once again this year as Towcester's Midsummer Music Festival kicks off over the weekend of 21-23 June.
With the weather looking decidedly better for the weekend, everyone is looking forward to some great beer, great tunes and a chance to chill out in the sunshine.
FRIDAY 21 JUNE
"We've got numerous bands lined up for the weekend," explained Brewery Director, John Evans, "as well as an outside bar and two music stages. We kick off on the Friday evening from about 7pm with local acoustics duo The Neggly Gents and their set of 80s covers, followed by local guitarist, Craig Live. It'll be a great way to launch the weekend."
SATURDAY 22 JUNE
Saturday afternoon's entertainment starts around 2pm with a little bit of folk from Lis Saunders and her band, followed by Safari Boots at 3pm - a three-piece band featuring guitar/vocal, bass and drums. They return following their success last year and play a mostly original, world music inspired repertoire with emphasis on African styles with some Latin, reggae and a little bit of the blues!
They are then followed by Towcester Rock School around 4pm, and Cornucopia play around 5pm. MLC, who have played at the Mill before, start around 5.45pm. MLC will rock the Mill with their 60s and 70s cover tunes! There will then be an African Djembe drumming spectacular from Keba Diedhiou and his group, Nioko Bok. Towcester Stdio Band come on over to the Mill after officially starting Midsummer in the Town Hall from 7.30pm and the evening closes with Funktionality at 9pm-10.45pm.
SUNDAY 23 JUNE
