SOME OF the best bands in Cornwall and Devon play a free festival – Waynestock – at the Royal Standard pub, Gwinear, this weekend.
One of the organisers, Dick Porter, said: "The idea of the free festival was to showcase some of the great local bands and to organise an event in the spirit of the '60s/'70s free festivals set up by people such as Mick Farren and Wally Hope."
The Friday night show featuring the mighty two-man blues-punk machine Moriaty as well as People's Republic and Buffalo Frame will take place inside the pub from 8.30pm, whereas Saturday/Sunday will be in the Standard's grounds (from 1pm and 1.30pm respectively).
Saturday is headlined by Sci 23 with King Creature, Honey, pictured, The Red Cords, Wolf Note, Night Motor, The Spankees, Lightknife, Heavy Souls and Old, New, Borrowed & Blue.
Sunday's headliners are The Eyelids with Pirate Copy, Mister Postman, The Sum Of, Louella And The Gambit, Preachin' Country, Grip Like Vice, Mr Julian Gaskell and Charlie Bowdery.
In addition to the Standard's wide selection of booze, there'll be a variety of food available, including pizza, curry, chips. etc. There will also be a merchandise stall staffed by volunteers, so that the bands can supply CDs, T-shirts and other goodies.
