FESTIVAL POSTPONED

Following government advice on gatherings and events, the Alston Live committee have been continuously assessing both the viability of running our festival, and obviously whether or not the powers that be would allow us to run the event. We have held back from making any final decision about this until today but feel that we could not leave it any longer.

Although we have been doing everything possible to keep the festival on track, we now have no choice but to postpone the event until next year. Apart from it not being financially viable we also believe it would be irresponsible given the uncertainties surrounding the Covid-19 virus. read more…

HERE COMES THE NOW

Alston Live has a happy relationship with South Wales (remember One Mark and  A Frank from Newport last year?). Well this year’s treat from the principality is The Now. The average age of the band is 21 and their cutting edge look and feel falls in line with their sound, cool, current and highly charged!

The Now’s inspiration comes from an eclectic mix of music and musicians who include Chuck Berry and The Police right through to Kasabian and Catfish and the Bottlemen, however these are just inspirations and not to be confused with how the band sounds. Vocal influences include Kelly Jones and Ryan ‘’Van’’ McCann. read more…
