Who will take on the Mag­nif­i­cent 7?

Two nights of rock and metal planned for town

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - MONIAIVE ATTRACTS THE TOP NAMES -

Dum­fries is to wel­come an ar­ray of rock and metal stars for a mam­moth week­end of mu­sic.

On Oc­to­ber 13 and 14, The Venue will host bands and artists from all over the UK for a two-night feast of per­for­mances.

This will vary from African drum­ming, acous­tic and rock on the Fri­day to an on­slaught of metal that will make the crowd’s ears bleed on the Satur­day.

Pro­moter Davie Kirk­wood has been in­un­dated with bands of all types want­ing to play in Dum­fries.

As a re­sult, he has booked two nights in­stead of just one to en­sure rev­ellers can en­joy more than just one genre in a fes­ti­val called Mag­nif­i­cent 7.

Davie said: “Peo­ple of Dum­fries have vary­ing tastes of mu­sic, some a bit heav­ier than oth­ers. So, in­stead of mix­ing the bands through­out the one evening, I have split them in two.

“Hope­fully this will please ev­ery­one who at­tends gigs in and around the area. Get­ting to bring bands from far away to Dum­fries isn’t dif­fi­cult, but get­ting peo­ple in Dum­fries to at­tend is harder.

“Some of these bands have played at ma­jor fes­ti­vals and played in Europe, so let’s hope they en­joy their visit to Dum­fries.”

On the Fri­day rock night, the line up is Zanz­ibeatZ, Cloustopia, Dox Do­herty, Dead­man’s Stand, Dead­fire, An­chor Lane and Rayne. Three Dum­fries bands and four play­ing in the town for the first time prom­ise to make this an ex­cit­ing night.

On the Satur­day night, the metal divi­sion hits town. With a line-up fea­tur­ing So­lar Sons, Rare Breed, Ti­tan Breed, Ki­na­sis, Blood­yard and Per­petua, this prom­ises to be breath­tak­ing. Tick­ets from Davie on 07921164687 or at dalek251419@ gmail.com, from Barn­storm, via the bands or at the door.
