Headlined this year by The Stranglers, Levellers, The Skints and Simon Townshend with a strong supporting line up of almost 60 fantastic bands, the winner of the Acoustic Category in the Live and Unsigned National Grand Final will go on to be a part of this fantastic festival!
Taking place between the 21st and the 23rd September, Looe Music Festival boasts low ticket prices for only £40 for an adult weekend, and £10 for Under 18’s. The festival features two stages smack-bang in the centre of Looe, a lovely little Cornish town and the main stage being situated on the beach.
Now in its second year, the festival was set up with the mission of bringing the best live bands to a sunny little Cornish fishing port in Looe. Having recently earned charitable status, any profits from the Looe Music Festival will go back into the festival as well as local community projects promoting musical talent and understanding.
Looe Music Festival is an expanding event and each year brings in bigger and better bands, it is catered to a wide variety of tastes in music from hip-hop and rock to 1940s swing and blues. So for 2012 Looe Music Festival is working in conjunction with Live and Unsigned to offer one act the opportunity to play in front of thousands of music lovers.
