To celebrate the 5th anniversary of this festival, the line-up had to be very special and with a distinctive international flavour, Geno Washington headlining, 12 different artists and two stages; this is certain to be a special day and one festival not to miss!
Always ready to rock the house, the King of the Swingers Geno Washington is the incarnation of all things ’60s. Hipsters and flipsters, movers and shakers alike, are all rendered incapable of having a bad time, when the Good Time Guru gets his army of fans on the good foot…….the old Geno magic still drags them in and sends them home high. Geno Washington is a genuine full-on cult hero… a legend on the 60’s Soul scene. He enjoys such status on the Soul, R&B and Northern Soul scenes, due to his unsurpassable reputation as a live performer. He is electrifying on stage and his love of performance (and of life!) makes him an inspiration, a joy to witness, and one of the greatest frontmen from the latter half of the 20th century. Geno had two of the biggest selling U.K. albums of the sixties and amazingly both of these were live albums!
