It is with great pleasure we announce the headlining act for the Friday evening at Beacon Festival 2016.
Not The Rolling Stones will be treading the boards and getting this community festival off to a flying start, we can assure you this is not a night to be missed.
With a back catalogue spanning 54 Years, The Rolling Stones have been branded the greatest Rock & Roll band in the world. And we have the most authentic looking Jagger and his tribute act right here in the heart of Oxfordshire.
Their endless song list includes: Paint it Black, Satisfaction, Start me Up, Jumpin Jack Flash, Honky Tonk Women; and my personal favourite, Gimme Shelter.
I personally saw a Rolling Stones Tribute band at MOTH (Beacon Festivals predeccessor) more than 10 years ago. A time when I was obviously far younger but also quite uneducated of more classic Rock & Roll Bands. They blew me away!! I couldn’t have had more fun, than if I’d been to see the real deal.
Not The Rolling Stones, we can assure you, will deliver a night of non-stop classics, maybe some of which you know and maybe some you didn’t realise they did? Either way, we know it’s going to be a lot of fun.
A friend of mine, not only was by my side at MOTH but he also had the pleasure of seeing the real deal a couple of years ago in Hyde Park. Of this experience he said.
‘Well me and Dad danced and sang from the start! How can a band with a combined age, greater than the entire audience put together, be so good?
Their first song was, ‘Start me up’. It starts you up, drags you along and spits you out at the end of the gig, with a massive grin on your face!’
So let us go back to the Golden Age, flex those bottom lips and dance up and down the field with moves literally like Jagger.
We look forward to seeing you at Beacon Festival for the 17th-18th June 2016. Tickets are available from the website www.beaconfestival.net
