TWO Bournemouth teenagers hope to attract rock fans to their upcoming festival which aims to raise money for a Dorset charity.

Callum Gough, 17, and Sammy Lloyd, 18, set up Burned Out festival last year in the hope of extending Bournemouth's music scene alongside raising money for a local charity, Teddy20.

The charity, which was registered in 2014, aims to provide emotional and financial support to children and young people suffering with and undergoing treatment for cancer.

Their work includes providing respite holiday breaks to families in their Weymouth based caravan, known as Teddy20's Shack. The shack aims to allow families to escape hospital life and create precious memories together.

Callum Gough told the Echo: "We started the event in an effort to extend the Bournemouth music scene and bring people across the south coast down to the event, making Bournemouth the hub for live music.

"Last year we successfully did so, nearly selling out the event with six bands. This year we are back with 11, four of which being headline level touring bands."

This year, bands such as Dream State, Cove, Canvas, Deference and The Decoy will be performing at the festival on Saturday, August 4 at the Anvil in Bournemouth. Doors open at 1.30pm.
