Hornfest 2013 at St Albans pub over August Bank Holiday weekend

A POPULAR live music venue in St Albans is staging a new festival this weekend.

The Horn will be hosting the first ever Hornfest over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Taking place over two days, the event will feature a selection of some of the best local talent.

Bands performing at the Victoria Street pub were nominated by the public and then selected by an expert panel from The Horn, Juicebox Live, Ginger Pirate and Scoundrel.

With doors opening at noon and music starting around 2pm, Saturday’s line-up includes the likes of Assimilate, Chasing Immortality, Tony Goff Band, Mike Pearson from Kind Hearted Thieves, The Shallows, Winter and Idol Bones.

Entry costs £5 and there is a very limited number of early bird tickets available for just £3 if booked online at http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/event/76459

Doors open at noon on Sunday, with the music due to run from 2pm until midnight.

The Hornfest second day bill includes the likes of Nothing, Bleach Boys, The Uppercuts, Grindhouse, Ministers Dead, The Zipheads, Brocker and Rumour Mill.

A percentage of the profits from the weekend will be given to a selection of charities.
