TOP musical talent from Bridlington and beyond will descend on the town for an open air, summer guitar extravaganza next week.

On Saturday and Sunday, August 6 and 7, more than 25 acts will perform on the Bridlington Sports and Community Centre field on Moorfield Road for the Brid Rocks festival – which guarantees two days of the best local music around and a host of fun attractions.

Among the many acts already confirmed to play the festival are local favourites Edge of 13, Castles Made Of Sand, The Sonnett, Bad Panda, Alice In Thunderland, and many more local musicians and acts from across Yorkshire.

Organiser Chris Shields, of Boogie Woogies music shop in Hilderthorpe Road, said the event is definitely one for the diary.

He said: “It is for the residents of Bridlington and for visitors to enjoy. We are expecting a big turn-out.

“It is going to be a fab festival, with so many quality acts appearing we can guarantee that it is going to be great.

“There will something for everyone, from heavy rock, modern guitar music, soloists and even a pipe band.

“There will also be Punch and Judy, classic cars, face-painting and more – it is geared towards being a fun event for all the family to enjoy.”

Fundraisers from the Yorkshire Air Ambulance will also be on hand over the course of the weekend, with visitors encouraged to donate.

Advance tickets for this exciting event are available now, and cost £5 per day or £10 to cover both days.

They are available from the Boogie Woogies music store on Hilderthorpe Road, or from the Free Press office on Prospect Street. Tickets can also be bought at the gates on the weekend of the festival, however they will lose their early bird discount and cost £7.50 per day or just £12 for a weekend pass.
