The biggest annual musical event in the borough returns on Sunday August 18 at Caldecott Park with over 15 great live acts.

Headlining Rugby Music Festival 2013 will be funky covers band and crowd favourites White Men Can’t Funk (band members Daniel and Andy are pictured with Jay Palmer of Hinckley and Rugby, one of the festival’s sponsors). The free event has a total of 16 live acts and the main stage will open at 11.30am. The music will continue until around 7.30pm.

David Head, organiser of the Rugby Music Festival, said: “What an amazing line up for a free festival – I can hardly believe what we have been able to put together, this is really putting the Rugby live music scene on the map and everyone is invited.”

He added: “It’s important for the town and the artists that Rugby Music Festival is delivered free of charge. After all, it’s a community event.

“Our sponsors make this possible by picking up the costs of the stage and the other expenses that go with pulling together what has become a significant event in the local live music calendar. We couldn’t do it without them and we are very grateful for their support.”

The festival will also be raising funds for charity RP Fighting Blindness. Other acts included for the event include Stonefire, Fitz, Nurse Roberts and the Medicine Man, Kirsty Gallacher and Hollie Aires. The event is free thanks to its sponsors, including Rugby First, Cemex, Hinkley and Rugby Building Society, Asda, Brown and Cockerill Estate Agents, Rugby Borough Council. DMX Stagetech Lighting and Audio and Rugby Rokeby Lions.
