Burnley Council and Doc Redeye Events present three days of exceptional music
The success of the Burnley Rock & Blues festival has been phenomenal and is now recognised across the globe as one of the leading festivals for promoting authentic R&B world class artists. 2013 will see the launch of the 25th festival with another amazing line up and a town full of music for the May bank holiday weekend.
The Mechanics Main Stage will feature an emotional return of the excellent Mike Sanchez and his band, who featured on the first ever festival in 1988 with support from Rollo Markee and the Tailshakers.
A treat for all Blues enthusiasts as Burnley presents the highly acclaimed International phenomenon Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, the fantastic Hokie Joint and one of the hottest new bands on the blues circuit David Migden and the Dirty Words.
This will be a night of true legends with The Zombies featuring Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone, Wishbone Ash playing classics and tracks from their new album, acoustic excellence with Paul Jones and Dave Kelly and for the new wave of music lovers the talented Lucy Zirins.
Once again the town will truly be involved, with a full festival fringe and fun events throughout the town as well as music and themed activities over the whole weekend.
The festival has also made new and exciting links with the Liverpool Sound City event and will be featuring special guests on the Charter Walk stage from around the world as they visit the North West.
