Excitement is building for young people in East Hampshire and beyond following the announcement of the first nine bands that will play on the festival’s second stage. The acts announced are: Heights; Hacktivist; Marmozets; Gnarwolves; Continents; Palm Reader; The Valiant; Now, Voyager; and Aurora. With many more bands to be added to the festival lineup, and places for local bands on both stages, Butserfest 2013 is shaping up to be an amazing year of music and activities.
The alcohol/drug-free festival organised by East Hampshire District Council and supported by Southampton Solent University is now in its seventh year, with a growing reputation with bands, fans and their parents for being a great day out. Tickets are on sale now for £20 (plus online booking fee of £1.75) from butserfest.co.uk/tickets and will be available from local outlets soon. Discounted group tickets are now available at £90 for 5 (including fees), also from butserfest.co.uk/tickets.
