Organisers have confirmed the line-up of what’s described as the biggest free music event in the area, the Rugby Music Festival.

The event, which attracted over 7,000 visitors last year, takes place in Caldecott Park throughout the day on Sunday August 18. There will be over eight hours of music from 16 acts on the day. Amongst the highlights are The Peerless Pirates, fresh from a heady appearance at Glastonbury, talented Kristy Gallagher from Coventry, Rugby’s Hollie Aires and local stars White Men Can’t Funk, who headline the act by popular demand after an outstanding show at the Rugby Music Festival 2012.

The event is free of charge but throughout the event collections will be made for charity RP Fighting Blindness.

David Head, one of the event organisers said: “We have to thank Hinckley and Rugby Building Society and Cemex for recent sponsorship – by picking up some of the event costs they’ve ensured another fantastic live music family event for anyone and everyone in Rugby.”
