STEVENAGE DAY 2016 Pulls Record Crowd!
With the Practice Roomz Live events side, PRZ Live being used for some big music festivals we have become the choice partner to represent the local music scene by organising and running stages at Stevenage Day, a local event that is held in King George playing fields every year, June 12th! Obviously, we jumped at the chance to get involved with this great yearly event and now 3 years on we had the biggest turn out to date and gave chance to some of the amazing musical talent in Herts to shine on the Big stage and acoustic stage...
This year we were approached by organisers of previous Stevenage festival 'Rock In The Park' to see if we could bring the name of the once extremely popular festival back in corporation with our event. Seeming like a great idea we let them come on board and bring the name 'Rock In The Park' back to the forefront of the music main stage, also allowing us to bring in a big local headline act for the day!
This year we chose local 4 piece pop/rock band Room 94. The boys are from Potters Bar and have been touring in Europe and the UK with a headline tour starting in the later part of the year. Along with these guys we chose a selection of the finest bands/artists locally including The Cardinal Kings, The Defekters, SpaceGoat, Sing Rock, High Wire Brigade and 10.Gauge, whilst on the acoustic stage we welcomed Tim Brooks, George Powell, Cara Beard, Georgia Nevada, Steph Scott, G La Roche, Taylor Nathan, Sara Ashley, Tom Braggins, Lawrence Hill and Roxy Searle.
The acts did not disappoint and gave an amazing show to the biggest ever crowd to attend, with over 15,000 people passing through on the day!!!!!
It was an amazing day as always and we are excited to be asked back again next year to organise both stages, so if you are looking to perform next year then make sure you get in touch with us with demo's or You Tube links so we can earmark you for the 2017 event!!!!
