Ok so this is a new event brought to you by Acid Peacock, so we thought to make it a little easier to understand what it’s all about and avoid confusion we would lay it out for you by asking Acid Peacock (Brad Dring-Hill) a few questions about his event idea. There are two separate posters for this event one is for the live music stuff and the other is for the Hardr:ve event upstairs but both are included in the ticket price. There is also a FAMILY HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY. (Read More Below) This event will take place on August 24th 2014.
What is Peacock Sessions about and what’s going to happen?
This is an all encompassing bank holiday takeover of the biggest and best nightclub in scunthorpe.
Using Henry’s sound rig, A fearsome lineup of unsigned bands, an 8 hour dance event with headline slots in the main room and an afternoon acoustic session all included in the one ticket. The event will be hosted by martin morgan too, Scunthorpes number one entertainer and host.
What are the rules on under 18’s attending?
Under 18’s are allowed to enjoy the event from opening until 23:45, which is when the headline band will finish their set. There needs to be a responsible adult with all groups of minors but that can mean one in charge of a group. Obviously alcohol will not be on sale without i.d but there will be a range of soft drinks available.
I’m delighted to be able to include future crowds into this, as theres no other u18 event of this magnitude in the local scene.
What do people get for their money?
For the advanced ticket price of £5, you get 3 events. An afternoon jam and acoustic session hosted by legacy radio and Bash acoustic and finally “Full Vibes” a Trance, drum & bass event upstairs in Zebraz hosted by Hardr:ve and the Peacock Sessions hosted by myself. (Brad Dring-Hill).
This event will be a showcase, every band playing is outstanding and well regarded on their respective scenes. Full Vibes also promises to be something special as Hardr:ve are hosting the rave stage at Party in the Pines festival, so the upstairs line up promises to be a showcase of talent. 1210’s and cdj’s will be used for real mixing.
Why did you decide to do this type of event and what are you expecting from it?
I chose to do an all-dayer purely because I believe Scunthorpe is ready for it. My indie Friday events at the abacus are proving to be extremely popular due to the calibre of bands I’m bringing to play in Scunthorpe. I’m aiming for a stadium gig inside a nightclub, and that’s what I’m delivering.
Due to the venue having two rooms, and noticing how popular our rave and acoustic aspects are at P.I.T.P I decided to include both of them in this event to give even more value for the meagre door charge.
Why is Henry’s your venue of choice?
I chose to do an event at henrys after local Dirty Sterling’s “get into trouble” event, I saw the potential the room would provide with an outstanding lineup so chose to do a bespoke event there, similar to my “latte live sessions” event at the Abacus on the 1st of february. I believe it deserves to be used for a tailor made, professionally run event.
What bands have you got and why should people come see them?
Everyone on this lineup is hand picked for being at the top of their game for both the live show and recorded. Be it puppet rebellion who are hotly tipped for success or the swiines who sell out venues like rock city for fun, every single act is a headliner and their live shows are incredible.

JOIN THE EVENT
You are having two separate genre events in the same venue on the same day for very different tastes, how are you going to work this and where will the events take place (i.e) both downstairs or one up one down? It’s one combined ticket for the whole event, nothing is off limits so everyone’s musical tastes can be addressed. The main room’s capacity is 900+ and upstairs is 250+ so there should be room for everyone to see what they want. That being said, I’m hearing very positive things about all aspects from this event so it’s worth turning out early to make sure full vibes isn’t at “one in one out.”
It also gives partygoers the freedom to choose what they want to listen to, without having to leave the venue, something which I’m delighted to be able to offer.
There is a lot of competition out there at the minute for local venues and promoters what sets your event apart from the rest?
I think my event speaks for itself, you’ll be hard pressed to find an event of this magnitude for the door charge in a room as all encompassing as henrys. Due to the scale and the content I believe the door charge of £10 is very reasonable. But for those who purchase advance tickets the price is reduced to £5 for the entire event. Everyone involved is working extremely hard on this and would like it to become a regular format, when it proves as popular as it promises to.
We’re also using Henry’s state of the art sound rig in the main room, which is rated at 30k and hiring the b&m bins setup for full vibes, so this event will sound as good as the lineups deserve.
Theres also another incentive to purchase tickets, theres only going to be 400 released, and on the night one lucky number will be drawn to win a family holiday in either september this year, or may next year*
All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is buy a ticket from Celebrate Partyshop in Scunthorpe, or from an authorised ticket reseller.
