It’s here.

It’s the weekend and it’s the best weekend of the year. At 3pm today, the Steelhouse Festival opens the gates for its seventh year rocking the mountain top.

Skindred and Saxon are headlining the weekend but there will also be performances from local legends Hand of Dimes. Bernie Marsden joins them tonight and plays an acoustic set on Saturday. Tequila Mockingbird make their Steelhouse debut. Monster Truck and Iron Maiden lege Steve Harris’ British Lion all make appearances over the next three days.

The best value Festival of the year rolls on and I’ll be rolling on the hills later this afternoon.

Remember: “There’s no such thing as bad weather. Only the wrong clothes!”
