THE line-up for next year’s anticipated Music in the Park festival keeps getting better and better.
Recently added to the bill are exciting local pop and punk band The Drakes, a covers band with a difference Sultans of Swing; and rockabilly/50s band Roadhouse Cruisers.
Top Led Zeppelin tribute band Hats Off to Led Zeppelin will also be playing. They are now co-managed by Warren Grant, son of the late, legendary manager of the original Led Zeppelin, Peter Grant.
Local techno-rock group As If, who are also on the bill, have a busy time ahead. They launched their new album last month at Thame Leisure Centre.
The album features a new collaboration with COAH, rap, and Danni James, soul and pop.
To accommodate the extensive entertainment programme, Music in the Park will feature two large stages; a third stage in the beer tent showcasing singer-songwriters and bands; and The Bubble, an orange dome marquee dedicated to DJs and electric bands.
Prices for advance tickets are unchanged from last year at £16 for a family ticket, £6 for adults and £4 concessions, students, senior citizens, and 16 years and under.
Children under five get in free. All children 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
Tickets went on sale on Thursday and will be available online, in selected shops in Thame and Thame Town Hall.
The event takes place on Sunday May 13 in Elms Park and on-the-door prices are £20 for a family, £8 adult and £6 concessions.
