ROCK the Lakes festival is taking place this weekend at the Leisure Lakes complex.
Several local tribute bands such as Fag Ash Lil and The Stones are playing over Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Tickets for the festival are selling fast and organisers are hoping it’ll be the best year yet.
Mike Blundell, festival organiser, said: “It’s absolutely fantastic; there’s been such a buzz about it this year, it’s brilliant. Lots of people have been talking and we’re hoping for a big turn-out.
“The weather forecast isn’t the best but we’re well prepared and all the bands are playing in a marquee anyway so it won’t affect us. It’s all part of the fun anyway; it wouldn’t be a festival without a bit of mud.”
Southport Brewery is producing a special “Rock the Lakes” beer which will be sold at the event and as a souvenir for festival-goers.
