The return of the Waterfront Festival

21/06/2012

This Saturday a ton of bands and artists will be doing their thing across three stages at the Canalhouse, all in the name of charity...


Nottingham Waterfront Festival

Nottingham Waterfront Festival

Here at LeftLion, we don’t put our name to any old rubbish, So when we were asked to co-sposor the Waterfront Festival we jumped at the chance. Back for its third year, this very special link-up between I’m Not From London, Audacious Face Music and The Maze has
returned to bring one hell of a line-up to the banks of the Nottingham Canal, and LeftLion and Castle Rock Brewery are more than proud sponsors of the all-for-charity knees-up.

The setting is the same as before; a ton of bands and artists will be spread across three stages at the Canalhouse (the place with the boat and the bridge in the middle of the venue). This year, the Good Ship Waterfront is weighed down with over forty bands to have you bobbing, swaying and keeping your spirits afloat. 

You can rock out (but not with your cock out, unless you happen to be in the Gents having a Jimmy Riddle, obviously) to the likes of the raucous Dick Venom and The Terrortones, Hot Japanese Girl (rumoured to be their last ever gig!), The SmearsBaby GodzillaAlright The Captain and the almighty Pilgrim Fathers.

For those less inclined to heavy riffs there’s the soulful sounds of Nina SmithRob Green and Chris McDonald, or the gruff-voiced blues of Will Jeffrey.  Too chilled for you?  Well bounce around to the mirthful music of Hallouminati, Wholesome Fish and Manière des Bohémiens.

Chuck in some DJs, performance artists local trader stalls and you’ve got yourself a partay.
Previous events have raised loads for P.A.S.I.C (Parents of Seriously Ill Children) but this year they are raising money for two new worthy charities that are important to the local community: Nottingham Hospitals Charity and SCOPE Nottingham. The former are trying to raise £2.1 million to build a new purpose-built unit for Cystic Fibrosis patients in Notts, while the latter are raising money for airflow mattresses for disabled service users during respite care.

Kicking off at 1pm, the fun will not cease for thirteen hours - so grab your tickets now for what promises to be a blast. Unsurprisingly, the last two years have been sell-outs, so don’t be left on the shore when it all casts off.

Waterfront Festival, Saturday 23 June, the Canalhouse, 48-52 Canal Street, NG1 7EH. Tickets £5 adv.
