Inglorious, Kris Barras Band, Ryders Creed, Elles Bailey and more set for Webfest 3.
After the success of the first 2 New Wave of Classic Rock Facebook Group‘s Webfests in April and June 2020, where dozens of artists took part, including Massive Wagons, Bad Touch, Blackwater Conspiracy, Dead Man’s Whiskey, and many more, the organisers are doing it once again on Saturday and Sunday August 15th / 16th 2020.
Taking part in Webfest 3 will be such bands as Inglorious, Kris Barras Band, Ryders Creed, Elles Bailey and more.
“The last two Webfests were such a success that we were inundated with bands wanting to appear at future events.”, said Webfest organizer and New Wave of Classic Rock Admin Richard Brindley. “It was obvious very early that in order to fit everyone in, we were going to need to hold a 2 day event across both days of the weekend.”, Brindley continued. “You can’t go out to festivals, so let’s bring the festival to your living room.”
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 45 bands across the 2 days, and our target is £10,000.”
Webfest 3 will be streamed on the New Wave Of Classic Rock‘s Webfest Facebook page, and the New Wave of Classic Rock‘s YouTube channel.
