One of the occupational hazards of running a festival is things will always change with the line-up before the event. We have been hit with our first casualty of BBFest 2018.
Louder Still, who were to make their debut on the Rock People Management Acoustic Stage have regrettably had to bail from the festival while they are still on the search for a vocalist after their singer Tom left the band late 2017. We’ll keep an eye on the band and hopefully they will get another chance next year to come and play.
So onto the good news. Replacing Louder Still is a band that has absolutely exploded onto the rock scene in the past year. Having won HRH’s talent search competition Highway to Hell in September 2017 the band have now become one of the hottest young bands in the UK with bookings at many festivals this year.
At Hard Rock Hell XI the band played 3 sets over the weekend including one of the most impressive acoustic sets we’d ever seen. Instantly, they were pencilled in for a future band at BBFest so when this opportunity arose, we had no hestitation in inviting Ryders Creed to step in for us.
Front man Ryan Hulme said “We are really looking forward to it man! We love playing acoustically! Provides a completely different dynamic”
Ryders Creed will be playing the acoustic stage on Sunday 27th May at this years festival.
