BANDS are set to rock Weymouth harbour at the Quayside Music Festival over the bank holiday weekend.

Local groups and DJs will be performing at the harbourside on Sunday and Monday.

The event, organised by the Rendezvous bar, is free to attend with outside bars serving drinks and cocktails.

Rendezvous’ general manager Keith Treggiden said he was looking forward to the event and anticipated it would be bigger than the last festival in May.

He said: “We’ve got 23 bands performing over two days and we’re expecting to have a massive turnout again.

“Hopefully it’s going to be bigger than the last festival and we’ve had a lot of people asking us about this.

“All we need now is for the weather to be kind to us.”

The music will start at noon and finish at around 10pm each day, with the Rendezvous Club open until 6am.

On Sunday, local bands The Fade, Low Numbers and Dinnerladies will be performing in the afternoon followed by Johnny Cash tribute act The Man in Black, The Speedway Snails, Freak Circus and Paisley.

On Sunday evening, there will be a performance from The Travelling Blueberries, Hybrid and a headline set at 9pm from The Stereoironics.

On Monday, the Mad Ox Brothers, Hustle, Zoe and Co and Flybone Yellow will be followed by Lady Gaga tribute All About Gaga, performed by Leanne Diva Lea Warne.

This will be followed by performances from Girl Toyz, Shooter, Bebe and Paulo, Four-wheel Drive and a headline performance at 9pm by Big Gunz. Exact times for each band’s performance can be found on Facebook by searching for Quayside Music Festival. Music for the event is being supplied by Danny Addams music production and staging supplied by local firm Weyscaff.

I'm sure that there used to be lots of live music around the Quay decades ago, but then the police and council frowned on it and it was disposed of to make way for 'family' entertainment.
So why the change of heart in the last few years, or have familys stopped going to weymouth during the day as well as the evenings / nights.

Another road closure - forcing more vehicles over the town bridge and down to ASDA's, rather than allowing them to pass under the bridge down Commercial Road!

More noise and disruption, a sea of litter and drunks and the police will be conspicuous by their absence!!

Best hope that Weyscaff actually turn up to build the stage, as in my experience they fail to turn up for jobs where money is meant to be exchanging hands, so for them to turn up not expecting money would be a miracle!

An excellent and free event for all locals and tourists to enjoy.

It's a shame there's nothing in the way of acoustic music as well as rock though...

But well-done to Danny Adams for all his time and effort.

I would be there, getting drunk and hurling litter about, but it sounds like there's way too many tribute bands in the line-up. I hate tribute bands. They're sad.

I agree with you Robin... You can just imagine the scene at The Cavern... "Hello, we're The Beatles. Can we have a gig?"

"Whose songs do you do lads?"

"We do our own!"

"Sorry lads, we only want covers... No call for original music."

It'll still be a good time for all though...
