Festival to shine light on home-grown talent
Published 11/08/14



HEADLINE acts aside, this weekend’s Hideaway Festival is set to showcase a wealth of local talent.

The annual festival, whicvh has expanded from its one-day debut last year to cover three days with more than 50 acts, begins tonight, Friday, at the 25-acre Fawley Hill estate.

Among those taking to the stage are Henley “boy band” No Direction HoT Boys, starring town centre manager Pete McConnell aka Posh, alongside Martyn ‘Eek’ Cooper aka Sporty, and Mike Holland aka Scary. They will be ably supported by the After Dinner Bints, Patrick Causer on guitar, Lynne Butler on bass and Kate Cooper on cajon.

The line-up also includes singer-songwriter Megan Henwood, who grew up in the town, returning after performing at last year’s event.

Several acts from last year’s festival will also be returning, including the Tom Michell Trio and Hugo Loudon’s Voodoo Funk Collective.


From Reading, there is three-piece guitar band Off The Radar, Vienna Ditto with her spooky, haunting vocals, Edd Keane, who crafts exciting jazz-flavoured instrumental songs, and Charlie Dore, who will appear on the acoustic stage.

Also, Reading-based collective The Herberts will bring their free-flowing variety of soul, gospel, reggae and country funk.

Maidenhead will be represented by bands The Newtowners, who have a set which includes hits from the soundtrack to George Clooney’s O Brother, Where Art Thou?, and The Groovolution, a five-piece act influenced by the likes of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Pink Floyd. Local food and drink will be available throughout the weekend, including a specially brewed ale, Hideaway IPA, from Loose Cannon Brewery in Abingdon.

There will also be stalls selling arts and crafts and other gifts on the site.

Weekend tickets cost 90 including camping, while day tickets are available for 25 for Friday and Sunday or 45 for Saturday. Under 12s go free.

Tickets are available at www.hideawayfestival.com or can be bought at music store In The Groove in Reading Road, Henley.
