 music fans pack the Market Place

Music festival fans rock Market Place Banbury.

Music fans packed the Market Place on Friday to enjoy four-and-a-half hours of non-stop rock and pop with generous helpings of ska and reggae thrown in..

Banbury’s second-ever town centre music festival was a massive success as five great local bands performed live on stage.

Thousands turned out for the free show organised by Banbury Town Council in partnership with community internet radio station Banbury FM.

The event was back by public demand after a stunning first festival in 2018 – and the crowds this year were not disappointed.

local bands performed live on stage

Guitarist/vocalist Leigh Chambers got the show off to a cracking start with covers of 70s, 80s and 90s hits and he was followed by Cold Blue Daze – a band influenced by ZZ Top, Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon and others.

Threesome BushFieldSmith performed acoustic originals and covers , and Oxford group Seven O’Clock Junkies played rock/pop originals and covers of anything from REM to Elvis Costello.

Last on stage were local favourites The Meanies, a soul, motown, ska and 60s classics band, who gained more fans with a great performance.

Andy Green, Banbury FM Breakfast presenter, said:

“Banbury has such a vibrant local music scene. We were proud to once again work with Banbury Town Council to showcase this amazing line up.”
