After the success of the New Wave of Classic Rock Facebook group’s (https://www.facebook.com/nwocrwebfest/) first ever Webfest in April 2020, where dozens of artists took part, including Dead Man’s Whiskey, Elles Bailey, and many more, the organisers are doing it once again on Saturday June 6th.
Taking part in Webfest 2 (https://www.facebook.com/events/226075868597937/) will be such bands as Massive Wagons, Bad Touch, Tequila Mockingbyrd, Blackwater Conspiracy, Collateral, Bootyard Bandits, The Dust Coda, Ashen Reach and more.
The first hour of the show is dedicated to bands from Australia, and will feature Australian X-Factor winner Reece Mastin, Sisters Doll, and Cassidy Paris.
“You can’t go out to festivals, so let’s bring the festival to your living room.“, said Webfest organizer and New Wave of Classic Rock Admin Richard Brindley.
Music fans are encouraged to buy a Virtual Ticket by Facebook Donation, by buying the artists “a coffee and a cake” via the Ko-fi platform, or by buying a festival T-Shirt, with all donations & T-Shirt sales profits going towards those taking part.
Brindley explained: “We want to pay all the bands properly for their work. If you were paying £15 to go to a gig with three bands and 100 people showed up, £1500 would go towards all costs and the bands would be lucky to turn a profit of £150 each. We will have 23 bands on the day, and our target is £5000.”
Webfest 2 will be streamed on the New Wave Of Classic Rock’s Webfest Facebook page, and the New Wave of Classic Rock’s YouTube channel.
