JUDGESTOCK Festival will bring a mix of the music industry’s biggest names and up and coming local artists to Sandwell Valley Park throughout the August bank holiday weekend.
The Quireboys will headline on Saturday August 24 with support from The Voice UK’s Mitchel Emms, tribute act Guns or Roses and local favourites The Wazzocks.
Birmingham indie rockers The Twang will be the main attraction on Sunday August 25 with Beatles tribute act Help, the band behind The Sopranos theme tune Alabama 3, and singer-songwriter Holly Turton.
Nineties boyband Blue will close the festival on Monday August 26, with help from Mobo award winner Lemar, Iron Maiden tribute Higher on Maiden and Black County band XLr8 who will perform classics by the likes of Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, Van Halen and Journey.
The festival, in memory of Simon Turton who lost his battle with cancer in 2011, is expected to attract around 15,000 visitors.
Simon was an old school friend of organiser Lee Judge and the money raised will be going to aid Macmillan Cancer Support and the Mayor of Sandwell’s charities Birmingham Midland Eye Centre and Better Understanding of Dementia in Sandwell (BUDS).
