It’s not long now until July and I think this line up announcement just makes things even stronger with a great list of new and established bands coming from all over the globe. If I could give just two pieces of advice, they’d be to get your tickets now before they sell out and, more importantly, if anyone out there hasn’t checked out the Brutus album “Burst” then get on it ASAP – you will not regret it!”
