A weekend of great music returns to South Normanton with the annual Rock and Bike Festival back at Carnfield Hall on July 14-16.

Top acts this year include rock icons Nazareth and fellow Scottish rockers Gun plus Oliver Dawson’s Saxon, punk veterans Anti Nowhere League and hilarious Mansfield rock parody act Lawnmower Deth.

The festival, which has been going since 2004, comes less than a month after the world’s biggest rock festival at Donington Park and the Rock & Bike weekend also includes tributes to Download headliners Rammstein, Black Sabbath, and Iron Maiden. Also, in memory to David Bowie and Lemmy, there are tributes to Bowie and Motorhead.

The line-up is completed by V8, White Coast Rebels, Verbal Warning, SNB , Stagefright, Cocked n Loaded, Crazy Diamond, Fahran, Rockaholic and all the way from Cape Town, South Africa album chart-toppers The SoapGirls.

During the Saturday there will be a spectacular custom bike and trike show and tattoo competition with prizes and trophies to be won in several categories.

Tickets are priced at just £40 for the three days. They can be bought from a variety of local outlets – the full list can be found at www.rockandbikefest.co.uk. There is free parking for bikes/trikes and disabled.
