Get rocking at the 80s Lockdown Fest
After a turbulent few months and with the postponements nearly completed for the entire Let’s Rock season of festivals, Let’s Rock have put together 80s LockdownFest, a special online event in aid of the charity Child Bereavement UK.
Happening on Saturday May 16, the scheduled date of Let’s Rock The Moor, which would have kicked off the 2020 Let’s Rock retro festival season, 80s LockdownFest will feature appearances by Tony Hadley, Wet Wet Wet, ABC, Howard Jones, Midge Ure, Jason Donovan, Toyah, Hue & Cry, Chesney Hawkes, Brother Beyond, Five Star, Then Jerico and many more.
The evening will be hosted by Pat Sharp and Dave Benson Phillips and the fun kicks off at 7pm on YouTube and across all the Let’s Rock locations Facebook pages.
Let’s Rock organisers UK Live said: “We would really like to thank both our audience and the artists for their amazing support and loyalty, and we really can’t wait to come back bigger and better next year. However, we couldn’t just leave it until then!
“We all need a little pick-me-up so we thought why can’t we do a festival ‘off the field’? Okay, we’re not all together in a field with a drink in hand enjoying the atmosphere, but we can all live through it together on our screens, and hopefully we can also raise some much-needed funds for the incredible charity Child Bereavement UK.”
