2018 Nottinghamshire Festival seeks to “recapture the spirit of Monsters of Rock”

28th July 2017 Off By

Stonedeath, a new one-day festival for 2018, will take place at Newark Showground, Nottinghamshire on 25th August 2018. The festival boasts a daily capacity of 10,000 with camping available on both Friday and Saturday nights.

The main headliner is yet to be confirmed, but organisers claim it is “is a name guaranteed to excite classic rock fans.”

The organisers issued the statement below whilst opening early bird sales at £40 or £50 with camping.

We’re a group of veteran rockers who spent every year waiting for that one magical day in the calendar: Monsters Of Rock. We shared our stories and that evolved into a feeling of loss, that Monsters Of Rock no longer existed. What happened to buying a festival ticket that didn’t involve having to take out a second mortgage? Having one stage, half-a-dozen good bands, crashing out back at your tent and talking to your mates about the day? Then packing up and going back to the real world on Sunday? Our aim is to take a mix of established and up-and-coming British bands with that classic rock sound. If you miss this as much as we do, you’ll love Stonedeaf.
