Vale of Belvoir band The Hoo Haas among headliners at Glastonbudget
Vale of Belvoir indie band The Hoo Haas will be among the headlining performers at the 10th Glastonbudget Music Festival later this month.
Thousands of music fans will once again converge on the three-day event which takes place at Turnpost Farm in Wymeswold from May 22-24.
The festival organisers have announced that Eighties singer Toyah Willcox will taking to the main stage as this year’s special guest. She will perform a variety of her biggest hits including ‘It’s A Mystery’, ‘Thunder In The Mountains’ and ‘I Want To Be Free’ along with songs from her most recent album ‘Has God Ceased to Dream You.’
This year’s event - dubbed the ‘world’s biggest tribute act festival’ - will feature over 30 tribute acts, including Queen tribute Mercury, and 100 independent artists playing across seven stages.
Glastonbudget also aims to encourage local artists to perform at the event - and this year Vale four-piece covers band The Hoo Haas will be among them after winning the headline spot on the Icon Stage on Saturday, May 23.
Singer Mark Brown said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have been asked. The auditions were very tough but I think the organisers liked us from the start.”
The Hoo Haas, who have developed a strong local following in Melton, Rutland and the Vale, are also due to headline the Stathern Party in the Park on June 13.
