Gibraltar is once again set to rock when its third Music Festival opens on September 6.
Thousands of music lovers will head to Victoria Stadium for the event that has more than 20 acts appearing across four stages.
Headlining the festival are Irish rock band The Script, whose singer Danny O’Donoghue starred as a coach on the BBC’s TV talent show ‘The Voice’. Other musicians include British singer Rita Ora, X-Factor winner James Arthur and fellow Brit and reggae legend Maxi Priest.
Other acts include Roger Hodgson (formerly of English rock band Supertramp), chart sensation John Newman and Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley.
Organisers said 10,000 attended last year and they are hoping for a similar turnout next month.
Steven Linares, Gibraltar’s Minister for Culture, said: “The Gibraltar Music Festival will again cater for all age groups and many musical tastes. We want it to be a feel-good event that brings the whole community together.”
The 12-hour event takes place during Gibraltar’s National Week festivities and will be family and disability friendly, with a festival like atmosphere.
The previous two editions of the music festival featured artists including Jessie J, Olly Murs, 10cc and Emeli Sandé.
Tickets are on sale at Vijay and Music Corner in Main Street, as well as at Gib Oil petrol stations, the Alameda, Ocean Village Express shops and online via the Festival’s website.
Children aged 12 and under will again be allowed free entry, if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
General entry tickets are priced at £55 for anyone aged 13 and over. Seated tickets will be reserved this year and will cost £80 - but VIP tickets have already sold out.
