If you’ve already cracked open a beer, now’s your chance to take some time to plan where you’re going to go and what you’re going to see, because with so much on you don’t want to miss a moment of the action. In the evening there are dozens of bands to choose from. This year’s event has a distinct ‘Rock’ theme with bands and tribute acts such as Oliver Dawson Saxon, Dead Ringer for Meatloaf, Bon Giovi, Mercury as Queen, the Red Mock Chili Peppers and ﬁrm favourite James Toseland and his band Crash. Once you’ve had your ﬁll of the heavy stuff there’s DJ sets from K-Klass and the legendary Brandon Block. But don’t overdo it, there’s plenty to see in the daytime too and most of its free! If you see anyone from the MCN team come and say hello and tell us what you think about the paper, the website, or the weekend. Prepare for the hangovers, it’s going to be massive.
