8th Kelvedon Free Music Festival 8th July 2006

This event will be held at the Recreation Ground, off of Chase Road, Kelevdon, Essex on Saturday 8th July from noon. The first act will be Burning Trolleys (noon) , the winner of this year's hotly contested Battle of Bands competition. Then on the main stage is a diverse range of bands including ska band New Town Kings (12:45), The Red Hot Radiators (16:30), and the absolutely brilliant, if slightly frightening, Scary Bitches (14:35). There will also be the return of the Festival’s founder Tony Winn who, along with his band the Rainy Day Women (13:40), will be playing a tribute set to the legendary Bob Dylan.

Rising stars Koopa (15:30) will show why they are starting to trouble the charts and happily Automatic Slim (15:30?) will be back again following their slightly curtailed set last year. This year's festival will see the introduction of the 'Acoustic Tent'. It is hoped that there will be between 8 to 10 bands playing twenty minute sets between 12.30pm and 5.30pm. Artists booked to appear so far include Sophie Nash (12:30), Rizzo (13:15) as well as And His Voice Became (16:15).

Bringing the whole show to a close will be the Counterfeit Quo (18:30), the mighty Stautus Quo tribute act. They're bound to play an adrenaline charged set that will see the band crash their way through Quo's best known hits including Caroline, Down Down, Whatever You Want and Rocking All Over The World, whilst still paying tribute to glorious earlier albums like Ma Kellys', Dog of Two Head, Piledriver, Hello, 'Quo' etc.
