Astonbury is a boutique music festival based in the rural countryside just outside of Chinnor. Now in its 9th year, the festival, which takes place in the summer, is extremely popular and well known for promoting local and national musical talent. It provides a platform for amateur and up-coming bands allowing them to share the stage with some of the biggest stars and hottest acts in the music industry. This year Astonbury is adding another concert to its schedule and has secured Status Quo as the headline act who recently announced that 2016 will be the final year of touring their full electric show.

After 50 years at the height of their game as one of the world’s top rock acts, Status Quo stepped out of their comfort zone to record and acoustic album, Aquostic, which gave them a top five hit, their highest chart placing in 18 years. After the success of their Aquatic (Stripped Bare) album and tour, Quo are going back to what they know best this year with classic rock ‘n’ roll.

The band have recently released a new 3-CD collection entitled ‘Accept No Substitute: The Definitive Hits’ and a 2-DVD set entitled  ‘Accept No Substitute: The Definitive Hits and more’ through Universal Music.
