Southampton charity music festival postponed for a week
A TWO day music extravaganza and fundraising frenzy has been postponed for a week.
The event, due to take place this weekend at Lordshill Centre, encountered eleventh hour licensing problems and has had to be put off.
Now it's a race against time for organisers to try to rebook the majority of the 16 bands due to appear, which included top Stereophonics tribute act StereoIconics.
Dave Extance, one of the team behind the mammoth gig in aid of Cancer Research UK, told the Daily Echo he was also hoping to sign up Coldplace, a leading Coldplay tribute band.
The event, the finale of a series of fundraisers which has also included water-skiing from the Isle of Wight and a sky dive, will now take place on Saturday October 27 and Sunday October 28.
Entry will be through the Mountbatten pub from 11am with a suggested donation of £8 per person.
