We Have A Band!!!
Create have announced their festival headliner and I’m delighted to tell you that it is none other than The Lightning Seeds.
This band dominated the charts all through the 90’s with classics such as “Lucky You”, “Pure” and “Sugar Coated Iceberg”. Even if you don’t know that you know a Lightning Seeds track, you do, as their music has appeared in many television commercials such as The Halifax and for Renault.
Now you can’t mention this band without being immediately being transported back to 1996 and the European Football Championship. England were the hosts of the game, football was coming home and we had an anthem. I for one am looking forward to belting this one out at the top of my lungs in Victoria Park on Saturday 20th July.
This isn’t the first time The Lightning Seeds have graced the streets of Ashford as they were one of the first acts to appear at Revelation when It first started in St Mary’s Church back in 2012 and we are ecstatic to be able to welcome them back.
This year’s festival, for me, is shaping up to be an absolute corker. We have Huey Morgan on Wednesday 20th and Terry Hall on Thursday 21st. Both artists providing us with DJ sets at St Mary’s Church for Revelations and now, for the lovers of live music The Lighting Seeds, putting the cherry on the top of a day of local live music.
Don’t miss it.
