More news, no ads


Thousands of people are expected to flock to a three-day music festival being launched at Newark Showground next year.

Unlocked Fest is being billed as the ultimate feel-good weekender featuring bands from the 80s, 90s and 2000s, including The Feeling, 5ive, Heather Small and Inner City.

It will take place from June 17 to 19 and will combine well-known headliners, DJs and tribute acts across three stages.

The festival had been planned to launch last year, but was delayed because of covid.

Organisers have retained many of the original line-up and acts that are due to appear also include Craig Charles, Ministry Of Sound Classical, Space, Phats and Small, Big Brovaz, Dario G, and Go West. More acts will be announced in the coming months.

“For individuals locally, we’re putting on the biggest selection of live music that the town has ever seen across one weekend,” said festival founder Steve Yeardsley.

“This is a real first for Newark and it’s going to be quite the occasion.

"We’ve made sure that the running order will be packed with feel-good sing-a-long classics that will make people feel like we’ve literally lifted their favourite playlist and put it on a stage in front of them."

Last week, we revealed news about the festival and its line-up, with organisers explaining how the event will bring in business to the surrounding area.
