Tomorrow Andover High Street will again be rocking with superb sounds from the town’s best bands and singers at the 2016 A-Fest.
The family-friendly event with live music, fairground rides, stalls and activities starts at 2.00pm, continuing through until 6pm tomorrow (Sunday 29th May).
The event has been organised and will be technically managed by students from Andover College.
The line-up includes a varied mix of Andover’s young, up and coming artists as well as some more established acts. Student Eben Taylor will start the event with an acoustic guitar session.
Musical genres through the day include rock, country and blues.
Following Eben to the stage will be Aaron Sibley, four piece covers band “By Wednesday”, guitarist Stewart Saunders and Hannah Bolsover will wax lyrical with her emotional guitar and rap stylings.
Singer-songwriter Hannah Cutts will perform on stage around 4pm, giving way to young country artist Alex Krupa who is at the end of three days of consecutive gigs in Andover.
Dale Zeffertt will impress the audience, proving that a guitar is not just for strumming before giving way to well-known local covers band Nokando who are known for their varied performances.
Event host David Harber says, “This year’s A-Fest promises an afternoon of varied, mostly acoustic music. It never ceases to amaze me the huge amount of talent in the town’s young people. This will be another fantastic showcase of gifted local youngsters.
“We will also be raising awareness and money for the Enham Trust and Papyrus, who focus on the prevention of suicide in young people”.
A-Fest is supported by Andover Town Council, Andover Town Centre Partnership, Test Valley Borough Council and Andover College.
