A MASSIVE alternative music event is headed Bridgwater’s way this summer with more than 30 bands set to play loud and proud across four stages.

From the organisers of last year’s Morbid Mash-Up and new alternative music night, Shenanigans, comes New Age Festival 2014, a one-day event to be held on Saturday, August 16, at Bridgwater & Albion RFC.

A raft of bands have been announced on the line-up so far, including: THE COMPUTERS: A headlining act from Exeter calling themselves “the saviours of soul, the heavy weight champions of rock n' roll.”

VERSES: Brighton rock with plenty of gig dates fixed for the UK this summer including 2000 Trees festival.

ZOLTAR SPEAKS: The female-fronted rock outfit from the “dusty hollows” of Minehead.

THE FIRST: Supporting Black Sabbath, these “melodic” rockers from Wisbech, Cambridgeshire.

TELLISON: A five-piece “waking-nightmare of a band” from Hammersmith in London.

BRAWLERS: “Sort of” punk rock, trekking to the South West from Leeds.

BRIDGES: Independent local boys who released single ‘Amor’ through Cherry Red Records at the start of 2014.

RADSTEWART: Cardiff “whippersnappers”, who believe, as Shakespeare says, that “brevity is the soul of wit”.

THE SPLASH: Bridgwater’s own punk-pop heroes, who released EP ‘Here’s A Novel Idea’ on Valentine’s Day.

Sponsoring New Age is Jealous Lovers Club, The Athena Rooms and Jaywalk Guitars.
