Headstock is a non-profit, volunteer and musician led festival that takes place at the Newstead and Annesley Country Park, near Nottingham, from Friday 9th – Sunday 11th September.

Despite their fluffy name, Echo and the Bunnymen were part of the 80s scene of dark, psychedelic post-punk. Fronted by Ian McCullough, the band have been breaking boundaries with critically acclaimed gothic anthems such as The Killing Moon and Lips Like Sugar.

When Ian Broudie started The Lightning Seeds, he treated it as simply a side-project. Between then and now the band achieved a number one with Three Lions, released several greatest hits collections and have a brand new record out called Four Winds.

Weekend camping tickets are £60, tickets for youths aged 12-17 are £35 and under-12’s are free. Tickets are available from www.headstockfestival.com.
