Great Music Stories is a Rock interview series by Guy B., host of the Friday Rock Show 5-8pm on http://meridianfm.com (Shortlisted: best music producer, National radio production awards 2016 & 15).
This year, Great Music Stories is a sponsor of the main stage at Scotland’s Wildfire Festival.
Great Music Stories is delighted to be a main stage sponsor this year, supporting the ethos of the festival – and continuing our support for a number of bands that we have showcased on air over the last year, such as Those Damn Crows, Safire, Fireroad, Little Brother Eli, Broken Witt Rebels and Bad Touch.
There is also a third stage, sponsored by Moshville Times. Details HERE.
Here at Rock and Roll, we’re thrilled to see some of our favourite bands are playing the festival, including: Toseland, Broken Witt Rebels, Bad Touch, Fragile Things, Dirty Thrills, Little Brother Eli, The Bad Flowers, Empyre, and Piston!
It really is an awesome line-up.
Here’s the official press release:
WILDFIRE FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES 69-STRONG BILL FOR RECORD YEAR
- Most comprehensive UK showcase of the New Wave of British Classic Rock.
- 2007 World Superbike Champion Toseland to headline Saturday night.
- Great Music Stories steps up as stage sponsor to support breakthrough bands.
- New teenage-specific stage to introduce a new generation to live music.
- First major festival billings for a number of rising, breakthrough bands.
- One of the best value for money UK festivals – price freeze until 30 April.
- Scotland’s only remaining rock festival leads a UK-wide new music agenda.
Wildfire Festival today announces the full band line-up for its 2017 festival, held in the sumptuous grounds of Wiston Lodge, Scotland between 23-25 June – and weekend tickets are available at 2016 prices until the end of April for what is set to be one of the ‘must see’ rock events of the year.
Today’s big reveal on the full line-up confirms intensifying social media and radio comment in recent weeks that Wildfire 2017 is presenting in one place a “who’s who” of a new generation of breakthrough UK rock bands – now too many in number to be ignored. As with the metal NWOBHM ‘movement’ from the late 70s, the gathering momentum behind what is now being called the ‘New Wave of British Classic Rock’ references the renaissance of a distinctly British blues-rock music tradition – and in Wildfire Festival this movement has a new home.
