Macmillan Fest will return next week and it is set to be the biggest and best one yet, back at the Rescue Rooms for the third year in a row, the festival, organised by IKE Productions, has put together one amazing line up for this year’s festival as it looks to raise yet more money for Macmillan cancer support.

The day will see live music over four stages throughout the day, ranging from metal to indie to chilled back acoustic vibes with a host of great performers from Nottingham and beyond.

The two headline acts this year are the biggest yet with the festival, with JETTBLACK headlining things on the main Rescue Rooms stage – sponsored this year by Born Wild Clothing, while the Mutiny Press sponsored Stealth stage will be headed up by TESSERACT.

Also appearing on these stages will be EMPEROR CHUNG, SKARLETT RIOT, EVA PLAYS DEAD, PATRIOT REBEL, JD & THE FDC’S, SUICIDE TUESDAY and THEIA (Born Wild stage), and NO HONOUR, CARCER CITY, VIRTUES, THE ALGORITHM, SKIES IN MOTION, OPPOSITION, THE WINTER HILL SYNDICATE and SINK THE CITY playing the Mutiny Press stage.

As in the past two years we’re pleased to say that we will once again be sponsoring the Red Rooms stage, making it the NottinghamLIVE.co.uk once more, and we’re pleased to say that the stage will once again have a stellar line up, with Nottingham band LONG DEAD SIGNAL topping the bill – make sure to catch them when they appear on the NottinghamLIVE Radio Show this Wednesday.

Also appearing on the NottinghamLIVE.co.uk during the day will be JAMES DALBY, THE GORGEOUS CHANS, HEAVYHEADS, LU COZMA & STEVE ASKEW, ADAM ZAREBA, JOSH KEMP and OPEN TO FIRE.

There will also be music in the main Rescue Rooms bar – sponsored by Bad Era Recordings - with a host of great sets. The headline act on the day will be the excellent ATTICUS ANTHEM, plus VIOLET, IN HINDSIGHT, A WORLD DEFINED, PAVILIONS, ADELPHIA and SPANGLE CORPS.

That’s not all though there will also be, as in previous years, the sponsored head shave and waxes, though NottinghamLIVE.co.uk Assistant Editor Geri won’t be taking part in that this year. Plus there will be food and stalls and more.

As always this promises to be one of the best festivals of the year and will no doubt, once again, raise a huge amount for a fantastic cause.

Tickets are still available, but they’re going fast and almost sure to sell out, with tickets just £8 in advance – from the Rock City box office – or £10 otd we suggest you grab yours now.

We’ll have much more detailed previews of each stage over the next week, in the meantime follow everything on Facebook - and if you haven’t already, get your ticket.
