Nene Valley Rock Festival


Nene Valley Rock Festival is a new festival for lovers of classic rock , blues and progressive music , and will be held in picturesque Nene Park , Peterborough from Aug 31st to Sept 3rd. It is being organised by a group of music lovers with very many years experience in running festivals and the aim is very simple - to provide a stage for bands both old and new who are too often ignored by other events. It is being run on a 'not for profit ' basis - nobody involved is being paid , the aim being to cover costs with any extra set aside for next years event.

Among the headliners are Ten Years After , The Crazy World of Arthur Brown , Colosseum , Corky Laing's Mountain , Curved Air and many more.

64 different acts will be presented over 4 days ranging from veterans of the famous Woodstock Festival to local heroes from the Peterborough club scene. All stages will be under cover and acts will be scheduled to avoid clashes - you will be able to see all the acts on the main stages rather than have to choose.

Unusually for such an event , the festival has no corporate backers , but is relying on selling a minimum number of advance tickets. These are currently being sold at a reduced 'early bird' price for full weekend tickets with day tickets to be available very soon. And if not enough tickets are sold then all the advance ticket money , which is being held in a secure account , will refunded in full to the purchasers. It is hoped this will give customers added confidence during these difficult economic days. And of course all of this is subject to contracts and licensing being completed.

There will be plenty of food and drink options available , space for camping and motor homes , several nearby hotels and even a heritage steam railway running alongside the site!
