Ready to rock at Ebbw Vale festival
2:40pm Thursday 26th July 2012 in Gwent news
THE wait is almost over as the start of a classic rock festival in Ebbw Vale is nearly here.
Held at Hafod-Y-Dafal farm, the Steelhouse Festival offers three days of well-known rock songs, and with the sun set to be shining campers look to have a fun-filled weekend ahead of them.
The festival starts tomorrow with Kiss tribute act Dressed to Kill, Thin Lizzy tribute act Dizzy Lizzy and Guns 2 Roses, the Guns n’ Roses tribute act, who are set to warm up the crowd ready for the explosive Saturday night.
Feeder are the Saturday night headliners, and with 25 hit singles and more than five million record sales under their belt, they are sure to get the crowds jumping.
They will perform tracks from their new album Generation Freakshow along with classic hit singles, including Buck Rogers.
Then on the Sunday night Reef will close the show singing tracks from their number one album Glow, such as the hit Place Your Hands.
