Brief highlights of #pfmusicfestival 2019 held on Saturday 17th August, at the Pretoria Road Show Ground, Ibstock.
Headline band for #pfmusicfestival2019 was the UK's No. 1 live tribute band, as voted on BBC1's Battle of the Fantasy Bands, ‘T-Rextasy’.
Authorised and endorsed by The Spirit Music Group and the Westminster Music Ltd, management controllers of the Marc Bolan catalogue, ‘T-Rextasy’ performed on stage the music of T-Rex, including their greatest hits.
Fans of Frankie Valli were in for a treat when ‘Stephen James’ took to the festival stage.
The ‘Lets Hang On’ theatre production and solo tribute show, The Frankie Valli Story, star, performed some of the amazing songs made famous by the voice of The Four Seasons.
Anyone that can remember the 80’s and the music of the era were certainly treated, as the sound, attitude and the performance of the '80's Revellers' rocked our crowd with The Cure, B52’s, ABC, The Clash and Duran Duran amongst their repertoire.
Making their Poppy Fields debut was The Midlands based rock trio, 'Tone Locked', blending together covers and originals.
Their ‘Should Have Stayed On The Bus’ EP is is still available on all music platforms with the first track ‘Times No Friend’ reaching number four in the ZTR.FM Rock Channel based in the USA. They continue to attract worldwide acclaim for their original work.
Having spent over a decade perfecting his act, and playing all over the UK, ‘Pete Valentine’ delivered the sounds of George Michael.
A stunning performance and dedicated tribute act to the late Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou that will continue to guarantee rave reviews as ‘Pete’ performed not only his solo hits but also those from his Wham! years.
Also on stage, we were treated to the genre of Ska & Reggae, provided by ‘The Elements’. With excellent reviews from the club scene, this duo took us back with no worries, as every little thing 'was' alright, featuring the likes of Madness and UB40 amongst other covers.
Joining our excellent lineup was the National Tribute Music Awards 2019 ‘Best Newcomer Category’ finalists ‘A Band Called Malice’ with their definitive tribute to The Jam.
Performing to sell out audiences across the UK, the talented trio performed all of The Jam’s greatest hits. They are fast becoming the number one tribute band to the early 80’s chart toppers and now a Poppy Fields favourite!
