Transition Belper are delighted to announce an incredible line-up for the fourth Belper Goes Green ECO Festival at Belper Rugby Club in June.

From the traditional ballads and storytelling of Pete Castle to the funky blues of Blackfish, this year’s line -up should have something for everyone.

Headlining on the Saturday will be Headsticks whose latest album Feather and Flame blends folk roots with punk energy.

Combined with the lyrics and vocals of Andrew Tranter, they are an act to watch out for.

Local artists will also feature strongly with Robyn Johnson a major attraction, while acoustic acts will also include Dave and Chris, Joel Davis and Sue Mcfarlane.

And no Belper Goes Green line up would be complete without Peter Rollings – aka Experimental Sonic Machines.

Friday night will also feature a strong line up with Moon Bullet, Water For Dogs, Red Ruff – with a slightly altered line-up – and The Fat Valley Brothers.

The whole weekend will build to a rousing rock & roll finale on Sunday spearheaded by Kitty and the Cadillacs and The Cassettes.

There will be some new faces too this year with Itty Bitty Committee and Annette Oakes making their festival debuts.

Further acts have recently been added including Juneau, Barney Rubbelz, Motormouth, Chris Butler, Songsmiths, Matt McGuinness, Familiar Roots, Backseat Harmonies, Sunflower Thieves, Leo Swarvett, Nick Glyn Davies and Tony Stark. 

Folk Friendzy will return to demonstrate the art of formation dancing and the Twisted Tongues spoken word collective will pop up where you least expect them with surprising renditions.

The event runs from June 3 to 5, for more details, visit www.transitionbelper.org
