Midsummer Music 2011

Saturday 25 - Sunday 26 June 2011

The Redbridge Music Fest is based on the popular Fete de la Musique which was started in France in 1982 and has now spread throughout Europe and beyond. In the spirit of the Fete de la Musique, the Redbridge Music Fest is a celebration of live music and provides a platform that allows amateur and professional musicians, playing in a wide variety of styles to perform in the community, for local people for free.

The Music Fest is organised every summer for one weekend by two Green Fair Association volunteers – Stephen Collins and Chris Wyatt (who provides a high quality PA system and his technical expertise/sound production skills entirely free!). This year's event - the ninth - will be on Saturday 25 June in Ilford Town Centre in the pedestrian shopping centre, the foyers of Kenneth More Theatre and the Library, and on Sunday 26 June in Valentines Park by the cafe and children's playground.

This is our annual celebration of live music where all performers play for nothing other than a showcase opportunity and the joy of participating with other acts from a variety of musical genres, 'for free, for fun, for everyone'.

Already confirmed for this year's Music Fest are..... Black River Heavies, Blue Hearts, Brett Housego, Chapel End Savoy Players, Dread Fury, Fuze, Gabby Niman, The Green Brothers, Ivy York, J.A.G Empire, Jay Cee, The Jones Boys, Lizzie B, Mandolele, Mick Day, Mike 'Dr Blue' McKeon, New Giants, Playing Rapunzel, The Raven, Redbridge Music Lounge, The Revolt.
