See you there for these great bands:

Stage, 12am: The Zero Hours
The Zero Hours are a local Twickenham band that have played together for over 30 years and played thousands of gigs. With Andy Goode on guitar and vocals, Pete Charlton on bass and Dave McGeahie on drums, their rock, blues and RnB covers will kick-off the main stage.

Stage, 1pm: Garage Racer
Garage Racer is a three-piece hardcore punk band from southwest London, consisting of Harry Jarvis on vocals/guitar, Scott on drums and Aren on vocal/bass. Scott and Harry jammed throughout secondary school for fun until they met Aren at a local gig. They started writing songs together and gigging until they became Garage Racer and they’ve been a band for two years. Sharing influences of many bands such as Nirvana, NOFX, Gnarwolves, Black Flag, OFF! and Bad Brains, they’ve played many local gigs from one-stage festivals to clubs and pubs with their high energy punk rock. Outside Rock and Fairy, opposite pub,

Stage, 2pm: The AllBeats
Are a ’60s retro group formed by guitarist Rol Rock in 2005, covering classic hits from this golden era of rock’n’roll by the likes of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Kinks etc. They have gigged extensively across the UK and Europe, playing at festivals, corporate events, weddings and parties.

Stage, 3pm: The Fades
Local lads The Fades are brothers Dave (vox, guitar) and James Lightfoot (bass), lifetime school friend Jonny Barnard (guitar) and Alastair “Flash” Thorpe (drums). Since forming in 2002 and releasing the XFM-championed “You Say”, they’ve toured the UK and Ireland, Europe, and the US, have been regularly playlisted on national radio and featured in TV shows and numerous publications across the world. New single “Heard it on the Radio” is scheduled for release TOMORROW, so the boys wanted to come and do a local show in the car park of one of their favourite pubs and regular watering-holes to celebrate with their community.

Stage, 4pm: Skalectrix
Skalectrix is not a band, it’s a labour of love. Formed many years ago by local Twickenham lads, Skalectrix has continued to get people dancing all over the country. As a festival regular they are hard to ignore, and impossible to keep still. Featuring local favourite Jim Sole on vocals and a group of talented musicians, you will remember how much you love ska, rocksteady and two-tone music.

Stage, 5pm: Sugar T and the Swells
are one of the slickest, sexiest, most entertaining bands on the circuit. They deliver classic R’n’B and Rock’n’Roll of the 50s and 60s - the music of Etta James, Dinah Washington, Little Richard, Johnny Otis, Ray Charles et al - with a 21st century attitude. Equally at home in sweaty dive bars and clubs, dance halls, festivals, or swanky upscale private events, Sugar T and the Swells are guaranteed to get the fair audience off their feet and dancing!
