Hampified the heart of Rugby…4th year of festival bonanza

Hamplified Music and Rugby 7’s charity festival is back for its fourth year at Rugby St Andrews Fields,

Ashlawn Road, Rugby on Saturday July 18th. The festival was created by Logistics planners Mark Brightwell and Robert Low and features a fantastic men’s and ladies Rugby 7’s tournament with top local teams Rugby St Andrews RFC, Rugby Lions, Old Laurentrians and Newbold RFC battling it out for the Hamplified trophy.

There are also 11 great local bands/ solo acts including Eve Singleton, Speak, Brother and The Record Covers (Robert Low & Callum McPhillips), with their two headline acts – Great Bluesy Rock from The Bad Flowers and Rugby’s finest White Men Can’t Funk (ft Matthew Scott-Higgins) bringing a real sense of fun to the event!

They are pleased to welcome many local businesses bringing their wares to the masses –Sweet Retreat – Alternative Rugby Market – Made In Rugby – CV22 Rugby – Candy Floss and Stacey’s Face painting to name a few with marquees and outdoor bar area provided by Wayne Morgan’s Blossom Events.

The event is free to enter but there will be many opportunities to donate on the day including bucket collection and prize draw tickets with some amazing prizes on offer.

There will also be a 3 hour live takeover of Radio Plus 101.5fm who will allow them the airwaves which will feature The Bad Flowers, White Men Can’t Funk, The Record Covers and Eve Singleton performing live with tracks from many of the other bands playing, interviews and information on everything you need to know about Hamplified’s events.

Rob Lowe commented, “I am certain no other festival gets absolutely to the heart of the community of Rugby taking the people, bands, business, CEMEX employees/ families and music supporters with us at every stage which helps our little idea make a big difference.”
