Redruth RFC is hosting a day of excellent live music on its famous pitch on Sunday 1 May. In between
lockdowns in August 2020 the club hosted its first festival, this was a huge success with over 1000 people in attendance for a line-up of top local acts.
This year’s event looks set to build on thatsuccess with an incredible line up of talent that will be headlined by Plymouth festival favourites Land of the Giants.
Since 2009, Land of the Giants have been pulling crowds to groove until they sweat with their foot-stomping beats and contagious enthusiasm. A brass section that will make you grin from ear to ear, heavy toe-tapping basslines and Andy Quick’s sensuous, soaring vocals will make you wonder why you’ve never danced your ass off to The Giants before.
At the end of 2015, the Plymouth-based boys brought a brand new, funk-inspired EP to the table in the name of “Surrender”. A collection of high-energy summer sounds, with just a lick of calypso, that absolutely demand to be blasted out those boomboxes at full volume.
The last three years have seen The Giants unrelentingly tour the length and breadth of the UK, spreading their fresh and accessible sounds to venues and festivals alike. From packed out stages at Glastonbury, Boomtown and Beautiful Days to rocking venues from Ireland to India; LOTG are well on their way to global domination.
The six-piece collective scooped Best Band in the most recent Southwest Music Awards and have been tipped by many as one of the best emerging live bands in the country. So put your hands up, surrender, and get those dancing shoes on.
Elsewhere on the bill, The Roustabouts Collective, who offer a musical cabaret experience that will amuse, bemuse and amaze. Performing a theatrical mixture of gypsy, balkan, folk, dance and swing influenced original songs and arrangements.
The Strutts have a reputation for packing out parties of all sizes and this event is made for them. Big, bold pop sound – all the hits and a few surprises. Do not forget your dancing shoes (or in this case, maybe boots!)
Also performing, the brilliant Not the Beatles, who do exactly what it says on the tin, one of Cornwall’s favourite and most established cover bands Small Wonder. Plus local crooner Andy ‘the Crooner’ Marshall, and Redruth RFC’s very own Jack Kessell, who will open proceedings at 1.15pm.
Gates open at 11am and there will be outdoor bars, food stalls, art & craft stalls, bouncy castles and much, much more. DON’T MISS IT!!!
