It’s not long until Rugby Bikefest and organisers Rugby First, Rugby Borough Council, bike groups and Genius Bros have put together another great line-up of music.

The festival takes place on Sunday, May 22 between 10am and 4pm, and there will be stages in Market Place, St. Andrew’s Church gardens and Caldecott Park.

The talented musicians set to perform at the event include Stupid Boots, Tan.Trum, Hanzo, Fall From Glory, Morning Star, Dead Frequency, Go Primitive (pictured above), Bad Touch, Eve Singleton, Emilie Rackham, Behind The Settee, Change Over, White Men Acoustic, Copperhead Road, Dexter, Belle Harmonie,Tazmin Barnes, Nath Brooks, Melissa Severn, Katrin McCall, Strawhouse Singers, Rachel Ann and Lorna Dea.

The free family festival also includes a ride-in, bike displays, stalls, children’s activities, food and the Extreme Wheelie machine - a motorcycle simulator that offers a virtual reality experience.

Rugby First’s Managing Director Aftab Gaffar said: “With less than three weeks to go there is a real buzz about the event. Even if you are not a bike enthusiast the event promises a great day out for all the family. Businesses can also look forward to a significant boost in trade with increased footfall and visitors being drawn from both the local area and further afield.”

Aftab continued: “If you have not registered to join the ride-in there is still time to do so – just visit the website for further details and to register and we will keep you updated of plans.”
