Unsigned Rock Festival
@ The Old Bus Station Barnstaple
Presented by Dr. John’s Rock Surgery
August 10th and August 11th 2013
John Forster runs a radio show called Dr John’s Rock Surgery, which plays 100% unsigned bands. It has a substantial audience, partly thanks to syndicating to several radio stations. Obviously he plays rock although there is a fairly broad scope within the genre.
The festival has been set up to raise money for a local charity, PATHFIELDS SCHOOL in Barnstaple Caring for children with Downs and severe learning disabilities.
“I have been shown around the school and it is a great place and the kids are incredible. With kids going to the school from Ilfracombe, Barnstaple, Bideford think you will agree it is well worthwhile cause and we couldn’t be happier to be doing this for them.“
Of the bands playing, I have already heard of, or written about several of them, “Band Of Roses”, “Ataraxis Vibration”, “Billy Brown”, “Blackwater England”, and “The Black Dogs”. Based on my knowledge of those band this is going to be a totally brilliant couple of days.
£10 for the two days is an absolute bargain and all profits go to the charity so I think this is a must see if you live anywhere in North Devon.
