The spirit of Glastonbury will come to a village pub in Braunston this weekend with live performances from several of the region’s top acts.

The Admiral Nelson Music Festival will be held on Saturday August 8 from noon to 11pm.

This year’s event follows on from the success of last year’s.

It will be held in the same field after outgrowing the pub car park in 2013.

Last year approximately 3.000 people attended and the organisers re hoping the event will continue to grow even bigger this year.

Sarah Davis from the pub said: “We are a local, independent family run business and the festival is a great day out for all ages.

“We were even able to make a donation to our local community last year.”

Entertainment on the day includes outside bars and food stalls, two stages, face painting, inflatables, live music and a magician to mingle and wow the crowd.

There will also be morris dancers, professional photography, barley flags, free wifi on site and fireworks to close the event.

Sarah added: “We are very excited that Juice Sound & Light are sponsoring the festival again this year – last year they supplied us with a incredible stage and lighting system and we can’t wait to work with them again.”

“We have an incredible line up this year.”

UK Foo Fighters are the headline act. Other performances on the day will include Paper Street Soap Company, Attention Citizens, Motor City String Band and Antarctic Monkeys, the official tribute band to the Arctic Monkeys.

There will also be music from a Jimi Hendrix tribute.

General admission is £7, under 10’s free and camping is available at £12 per pitch.
