Mac-Stock, the two-day music festival held in Warsop to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support has been given a massive boost from over 20 acts, including The Levellers, The Wonder Stuff, New Model Army and local rising stars Ferocious Dog.
All the bands have donated packages of their own merchandise, much of it signed, to be raffled off as prices at Mac-Stock, which takes place at The Black Market in Warsop on March 24th and 24th.
Festival curator Graham Parker says he is bowled over by the support given by the acts, many of whom are not playing the festival.
“To have huge bands like The Levellers, The Wonder Stuff and New Model Army standing shoulder to shoulder with our headline acts Funke and The Two Tone Baby (pictured), The Stiff Joints, The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican and Dirty Vertebrae and all our other acts in support of Macmillan is totally amazing,” he said.
“We have T-shirts, CDs, DVDs, vinyl records, festival tickets, guest list passes for gigs and even a signed satchel from The Levellers, which is possibly the only one of its kind. Tickets will be on sale all weekend and the lucky winners will be drawn on Saturday night.”
Music fans wanting to buy tickets but not going to the festival should log on to the Mac-Stock Facebook page www.facebook.com/macstock2017 to find out how to buy them.
Tickets for Mac-Stock are available from online https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/date/FMDDIE can be ordered from The Black Market or paid for on the door at a higher price. Day and weekend tickets are available.
