Fans of classic rock rejoice - July 2010 will see the debut of a new two-day festival in London’s Victoria Park. Called High Voltage, it promises a lineup of 40 of the best bands that classic rock, prog and metal have to offer, handpicked by Guitarist’s sister mag, Classic Rock.
Topping the bill are the legendary Emerson, Lake & Palmer and ZZ Top, with many more great rock acts on the way.
Says Classic Rock Editor-in-Chief Scott Rowley: “High Voltage is the festival all true rock fans have been waiting for – custom built by rock fans for rock fans. The High Voltage team have been to every rock festival imaginable – we’re taking what we’ve learned to build a festival unlike any other.
“First of all there’s the music: two amazing headliners AND three unique stages specially curated to cater for different sides of the rock audience, and a brilliant supporting cast playing special must-see sets.
“Then there’s the festival itself. The facilities will be second to none: great food, proper beer, clean toilets, deluxe hospitality packages, designated hotels, free shuttle transport. This is somewhere you take the whole family.”
Early bird tickets are priced £120 (for weekend tickets) and £65 (for day tickets), and will be on sale from 9am on Friday 4 December 2010. The early bird tickets will end on 31 December 2009. Standard tickets are prices £130 (for weekend tickets) and £75 (for day tickets).
