EDG Rock Stage 2017

Just looking over this year’s line up for the EDG rock day and wondered what has happened to previous band’s that have appeared. Hostile headlined in 2013 and have recently supported Megadeath in front of a sell out crowd in Russia. Butterfly Stone appeared in 2014 and then returned to headline in 2015. They have recorded soundtracks for two animated full length movies and soundtrack for top selling computer game dirt track called “who is leading who”. Appearing at last year’s Epic event we had Stone Broken, who were Planet Rocks new band of the year runner up. In the past 12 months they have appeared at Download and were voted in the top ten band’s of the year on Planet rock, btw it was won by Iron Maiden. Recently they appeared at the Rambling Man festival on the main stage which was later headlined by ZZ Top.

So what about this year’s band’s? Headlining we have Mason Hill all the way from Glasgow. They are another band appearing at Planet Rock events. Our special guests are the Soap Girls, who made an impromptu appearance on the Bridgnorth High street last year, and went down a storm. We have local Telford favourites Guns for Girls, Sister Shotgun who are doing great on the local circuit. We also have Valous with the awesome vocals of Mat Shutt. From Coventry “The Ellipsis” and opening the show Ghosts of Social Networks.

We are very proud of the great band’s who have appeared at the EDG and this year’s no different. If you like rock please come and enjoy the event starting around 1pm. It’s free entry, there is food, a licenced bar and kids entertainment. It’s weather protected as we use the Rugby clubs giant marquee. See you all soon!

EDG Sun Fest is back for 2017

This year the Bridgnorth Sun Fest returns on the slightly later date of Sunday 28th May. Another change this year is the introduction of the marquee that was used for last years Bridgnorth Festival Rock day in August. So this year the weather can’t dampen the spirits.
There are other events planned through the bank holiday weekend so why not enjoy our weekend camping which you will soon be able to pre-book this via the Bridgnorth Festival website.

There will be a reduced price for admission by buying advance tickets for those who like to plan ahead.

We have an on-site licensed bar and food plus activities to keep the young ones busy. The day has a very friendly family orientated atmosphere where everybody will be made to feel welcome

So what about the Music? We have a great mix genre bill. The Regulars a hard hitting, foot tapping, finger clicking, indie rock band from Wombourne. From Birmingham, The Delta Rhythm a cross breed of blues, hard rock, indie and prog rock. From Worcester the Mark Leedham band. Mark has deep toned soulful, emotive vocals with virtuosic guitar playing and finely crafted song writing. We have last year’s EDG battle of the bands winners Eligh Toadd who are a progressive rock band from Walsall. From the Midlands we have Ebenezer Weasel who perform various country classics. From previous Sun Fest we firm favourites Alien Embassy back. Hot Rod 55 are a three piece powerhouse, who whip up a storm with their dynamic delivery of some of the greatest rock and roll and rockabilly numbers to ever grace the planet. Opening the show at noon will be torque who describe themselves as Stadium rock, can’t wait. Whatever your musical taste, you won’t be disappointed.
