GlastonBARRY 2017 News!

This time 77 days ago, you were probably in the middle of a mass dance off to Run DMC at GlastonBarry 2016, preparing yourself for Flash, the Queen tribute to come on stage. That’s right, it’s only been 77 days since GlastonBARRY, but the Mack Events crew are not hanging about.

Each year, the annual music festival seems to get bigger and better. 2500 people rocked out Romilly park this year, dancing, singing and (heavily) drinking in good spirits to tributes of the Arctic Monkeys, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley and the epic Ska Tribute Band, 2 Rude.

Mack Events have Liverpool legend Alan Kennedy coming to Barrybados in 2 weeks, there’s a Christmas party to get out the way, and rumours of another Penarth Rocks in the background, but now seems the right time to announce GlastonBARRY2017!

Just a few minutes ago, they announced the dates of July 29/30th and we honestly cannot wait!

Ross Mackintosh, Director and one half of Mack Events said the following:

“Matt and I are absolutely delighted how this years GlastonBARRY went down….it couldn’t have gone any better, Sold out weeks in advance for the fourth year running….the whole event was a huge success.”

“The only trouble is…how do we top it? Well,we have been working really hard and we literally can’t wait to announce the line up….we have really gone for it this year,We have some incredible bands performing….some that we have wanted for years but haven’t had the budget,but now we are in the position to really go crazy!!! it’s by far the best line up we have ever created,it’s not even close!!!”

“We have 14 top tributes this year (4 more than last year) 2 stages, and some massive surprises that we can’t talk about yet.”

“We have announced the dates tonight -Saturday 29th/Sunday July 30th….everyone is asking us as they want to book time off work and quite a few people actually book the family holiday around it haha.”

“We will now start looking for sponsors for GlastonBARRY 2017, so if any business/company want to have a chat….please get in touch.”

So there you have it, GlastonBARRY announcement and the first official comments from Mack Events themselves.
