Walsall Music Festival Secures The Rev

The newly launched 2012 Walsall Music Festival has announced it’s evening headliners to play the Town Hall as being the mighty Reverend & The Makers. This is a massive coup for the festival and will ensure that the event will in no doubt sell out! Jon McClure (Better known as ‘The Rev’) and his band will headline the event on Saturday 1st December with support coming from Coventry’s Pint Shot Riot!, Hitchcock, The Two ‘N’ Eights, Gary Knock and Khaliq.

Walsall Music Festival drum-rolls into town on Sat 1st December 2012 in an attempt to boost both creative moral and trade in the town centre. The festival is a collaborative musical project between Walsall Town Centre Management, Leisure Services and the team at Breeze Experiential Marketing Limited, based in Walsall.

Several genres of music will be spread across the town with Leicester Street being a hive of activity to host live music tents, art activities and great food. Walsall Town Hall will form the centrepiece with free family activities and musical interludes during the day. The day will end with a ticketed evening party in the 1400 capacity town hall, which will feature big named Indi, rock and pop artists that will be announced shortly.

“Walsall has an abundance of creative flair in both music and the arts. It was the home and the inspiration behind some the music industries most prominent figures. We felt that over recent years Walsall had become overlooked as a town that has real creative potential. Walsall Music Festival sets out to fashion an event that will re-invigorate Walsall ‘s creative pulse making it appealing to musicians and music lovers alike”, explains Breeze spokesperson.
