Sunday Music from Early ‘til late
Unbelievably our first ever Sunday!!
Here at Rugfest Towers we are somewhat bewildered why we have never done this before and so this year we are really looking forward to making a weekend of it and following up with a third big day of fun. So gird your livers and loins and join us at 11 am when your Sunday sojourn is delightfully disturbed by the guitar genius that is Rory Evans.
At Noon to ease you back into the day we have the simply stunning vocal of Ophelia Ray and her band, for your early afternoon delectation. Reminiscent of Kate Bush and Florence these guys were a late but very welcome to the Rugfest Roster.
1 pm The delightful Fleur Stevenson continues to rouse your senses with her take on Jazz and standards and more, much more….
at 2 pm we are very excited to announce a first set at Rugfest for the brilliant Alboa turning up the volume a notch to rock you to life
and at 3 pm we change direction again and are really looking forward to the dulcet tones of My Darling Clementine - Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish continue to tour with their incredible new album Still Testifying - which Uncut magazine described as “where gospel, country and southern soul happily collide. It’s terrific”
Rugfest would not be Rugfest without our house band - with a massive following Ian and the boys will live up to their reputation at 4 pm buy ensuring that The Unusual Suspects will rock your afternoon.
At 5:00 pm its the turn of the 2Tone All Ska’s a 6 piece band that covers your 2Tone favourites and many more to get you moon-stomping and skanking into the early evening.
6 pm and the Lightyears bring their brand of sweeping piano-led pop; recommended if you like Elbow, Keane, Coldplay, Death Cab, Damien Rice a combination of staggering covers and their own music that will have you singing along and loving life.
From 8 pm Rugfest 2019 Main stage will close this year to the brilliant sound of the Echo. If you visited our sister festival Bunkfest last year you will know the Echo from their storming final set that had a massive crowd almost refusing to leave. The Echo played an outstanding gig and are frankly the band that the expression “one more song” is made for. Described as a passionate set of music celebrating the very best of Maximum British Power Pop! What better way to end an amazing weekend of music and fun?
