Andover’s High Street will be rocking to the sounds of the town’s best bands and singers as the line-up for A-Fest 2016 is announced. The family-friendly event with live music, fairground rides, climbing wall and activities starts at 2.00pm through to 5.15pm on Sunday 29th May 2016.

Singer song-writer Miffy Englefield will kick off proceedings with the first strum of a guitar at 2.00pm. The line-up which follows includes a varied mix of Andover’s young, up and coming artists to the established old guard.

While visiting the numerous community stands and enjoying the activities on offer visitors can enjoy listening to a number of musical genres including singer, song-writers, country and blues and rock. Following Miffy to the stage will be percussive guitar playing Dale Zeffertt and thereafter the talent will just keep coming including young country artist Alex Krupa who will treat the crowds to both original and classic country tunes; singer songwriters, Hannah Cutts, Hannah Bolsover, Stewart Saunders and Aaron Sibley will don their guitars for their solo performances and By Wednesday, the young 4-piece band will liven up proceedings with some blues and rock.

Last to hit the stage and closing the 2016 event will be Nokando, the local covers band. Recognised as one of Andover’s long established, top flight rock bands Nokando are known for their varied performances offering listeners songs from a wide range of styles and eras.

Event Manager Chris Gregory from the Andover Town Partnership said: “The line-up announced promises A-Fest visitors an afternoon of varied music. We’re excited to be supporting a number of Andover’s young and up and coming performers as well as handing the stage over to some seasoned artists. Everything is in place, with the music, stands, fairground rides and climbing wall to offer families a great free event on the Bank Holiday weekend
