KENT VW FESTIVAL welcome 90s favourites
The celebration of motors and music is supporting Musicians Against Homelessness
Former OASIS guru Alan McGee is teaming up with Kent VW festival this year as part of the Musicians Against Homelessness (MAH) campaign to raise money for the homelessness charity Crisis.
The popular annual festival, which is loved by car and music lovers alike returns to Coldred in Kent on the 2nd - 4th August, and now in its eighth year will host a celebrity line-up across the three days.
Festival organiser, Dee Parkinson, said: "We’re proud to partner and support MAH this year, and together aim make this the biggest and best festival we’ve staged to date. We’ll be featuring an extensive mix of classic and brand new VW’s, a full size fun fair, numerous trade stalls including food, camping equipment, clothing, models, trinkets, auto jumble and furniture, and with free kids activities there will be a focus on keeping the whole family entertained. "
Performances from 90s favourites Toploader and DJ Adamski will headline the Musicians Against Homelessness live music stage, plus more than 15 other acts ranging from folk to rock and pop. Saturday night will feature a fancy dress 'skool disco' with DJ Summers taking to the decks.
Alan McGee who famously managed Oasis and currently manages The Jesus & Mary Chain, Black Grape, Happy Mondays and Cast, among others said: “The support from Kent VW Festival is tremendous and inspiring, and it’s fantastic that so many quality bands will perform.
“Although our primary concern is to combat the scourge of homelessness it is vital that the MAH gigs also give talented artists a chance to play to larger audiences.”
