Ipswich Music Day this Sunday will see nearly 70 acts perform across nine stages at Christchurch Park.
Taking place from 12noon-8pm, the performers range from cover bands, tribute acts, original bands, choirs, world music and instrumental groups.
One of the largest free one-day music events in the country, it usually attracts around 40,000 music-lovers. The line-up includes Hot Tramp, Off the Wall, the 4130s, Benjamin Bloom, Primo Nelson and Moon Street.
First-time performer Rob Climpson, the drummer from The Mementos, said: “We really can’t wait and it’s nice to go to a festival where you can play the hits that people will know.”
Peter Riches, bass player for Key Features, who are returning to the event, added: “It’s a great event and brings together a wide range of music from the area.”

“This is a great opportunity for aspiring musicians to show us what they can do. After all, this is where Ed Sheeran was spotted a few years ago.”
