Thursday 23rd August
Following the success of opening for Status Quo, The Darkness, Black Stone Cherry, Slade, Bernie Marsden (Whitesnake), Eric Martin (Mr Big), Graham Bonnet (Rainbow); Walkway’s distinct vocals, jaw dropping solos and solid rhythm section have created a huge buzz and gained the band the reputation as one of the UK’s best unsigned rock bands. In July 2017 the band released their highly anticipated third album, titled 'WWIII'. Recorded in 13 days at Sonic One Studio and mastered at the legendary Abbey Road Studio's by Sean Magee. The album contains 12 new Walkway songs, plus a tribute to the late Status Quo Guitarist/Vocalist Rick Parfitt with a cover of Quo's "Rain" featuring the original Status Quo Drummer John Coghlan guesting on drums. "Really enjoyed it, loved the energy you guys had. You boys are annoyingly good"- Rick Parfitt & Francis Rossi (Status Quo) “I actually felt like I was at your show…” - Dan Hawkins (Guitarist for The Darkness)

Palmy Uke Band
The Palmerston Ukulele Band (P.U.B. for short) is an eclectic mix of music and performers attracting a huge range of audiences at a wide variety of venues from the Peterborough Beer Festival to Fetes & Charity events. In fact anywhere that people like to gather to have a jolly good time! We make it our business to share Ukulele love, joy and happiness wherever we go by putting our spin on popular sing along, foot stomping tunes from the 60's, 70's & 80's; Johnny Cash and The Beatles to The Kinks, Neil Diamond, Tom Jones, The Undertones, and many, many more. Although we're a bit of an odd bunch from all different sorts of backgrounds & professions (we even have our own bona fide 1980's pop star in our midst.....see if you can spot him!) we all rub along very nicely and are, as the song goes, "Happy Together".
On Stage from around 4:00 pm

Friday 24th August
Revolver have become known for their highly energetic stage performances of all the biggest indie anthems. A very visual band to watch, they manage to engage the audience from the word go and make any event belong to the audience as much as the band. Don’t be surprised to see frontman Nok bring his Geordie charm into the crowd and get the less shy joining in. With over 300 gigs behind them in the five and a half years since vocalist Nok and Mark Delaine Smith (Former member of the UKs top Oasis tribute) started the band in 2013, Revolver have been earning the main billing on many festivals from the North East down to local ones in their Lincolnshire homeland. Joining Nok and Mark are the dynamic Danny Hunt on guitar and explosive Dan Spence on drums. It has often been commented that when watching the band you can’t keep still, whichever one of the four you watch there’s always something going on. If you are into the big indie numbers by Oasis, The Kaiser Chiefs, Stereophonics, Feeder, U2, up to date pop like Walk the Moon or classics by The Jam, The Police, Erasure and even quirky stuff like Wheatus and Scouting for Girls and you like your tunes served up bursting with energy and performance with ripping riffs and full on vocal harmonies then you will have a top night and join the many others who have become a part of the large Revolver family.
On Stage from Around 7:30 pm

The Dizzie Miss Lizzys
The Dizzy Miss Lizzys began in 2012 after an invitation to perform with PETE BEST the original drummer of the Beatles.

Fusing The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Lenny Kravitz, Free, The Eagles, Cream, Bowie, Bolan, GNR and Queen in a heavy rocking unique way like nobody else. Joined by the fantastically talented Ex Midget singer-guitarist Richard Gombault and Paul Macca lookalike Si Martin they have gone on to become one of Peterborough's most popular and adored local rock bands Red hot and raunchy, rock n roll and heavy rockin' fretwork , sing your lungs out with The Dizzy Miss Lizzys.
