Bad Solution
Odhran - Nuclear Dropout

Local teenage bands are being offered the opportunity to play before a live audience during the Feast Festival (Friday 20 September).

Rock in the Village Hall is a unique event for Haddenham, reflecting the diversity of the village's cultural tastes. The event is headlined by 'Bad Solution', an Anglo-Polish hi-energy progressive metal band. But the event also provides a stage for showcasing and encouraging the talents of local young musicians, by offering them the chance to be a supporting band to the main act.

The opportunity is open to any local band or group, of any musical genre, so long as they're under-20. Those interested should send video or audio examples of their work to thefeastfest@gmail.com

Even better — upload your video to our Facebook page, and let your fans tell us why you should get the gig. There is a limit to the number of supporting acts, so the advice is, apply as soon as possible.

Bad Solution are gaining a following because of the intensity of their lyrics and music. Immediately after the Haddenham Feast Festival the band start a 5-country European tour. Bad Solution are ready for Haddenham, is Haddenham ready for Bad Solution?!

There will be a bar at Rock in the Village Hall, and tickets cost just £5-8. Music fans of all ages, and those wanting to do something completely different on a Haddenham Friday night can now buy their tickets online.

Follow the Feast Festival's Facebook page to keep updated. There will be new news every day, so keep reading Haddenham.Net and listening to Red Kite Radio, so you don't miss a thing. You can also follow the Feast Festival on Twitter and Instagram.
