It will also incorporate elements of the Links Market, as well as a second stage for dance and acoustic acts.

The organisers are aiming for up to 10,000 fans per day with all proceeds going to the NHS

It is aimed at heralding a return to normality after lockdown – and to give local businesses a support by bringing people into town, and bands an opportunity to play live once again.

The event will also give local bands and singers an opportunity to perform with a number already added to the line-up.

Tickets are £49.76 per day or £90 for the weekend, and £128 for the three days.
