I'm much obliged to Rob Halligan who has been in touch with me to ask me to pass onto readers of "Hot Music Live" the details of Motofest 2021: particularly the musical aspects which he organises.
Contrary to the impression some media reports may have given, the Motofest "event" itself is to be spread across a month from this current weekend (17th/18th July) while the musical part is happening on the weekend of the 7th and 8th August.
You can check out full details of the whole month at:
In terms of the music, the Nexus ICA Motofest mainstage will be hosting two days of live music in Millennium Place, Coventry.
Over the weekend acts will include The Upsiders, Vamoosery, Noiises, Dave Goody, Rifferspock, Danny Ansell, Rosso and Nunc with more to be announced.
Saturday night is MotoFest's Big Night out, a drive-in event hosted by Rob and Sandra Godley with special guests, live music and loads of laughs.
Sunday night is Hope@Motofest with the Psalm Event and ELO guitarist Dave Scott Morgan.
All the events are free apart from the Saturday night drive in. Tickets will be available on the Motofest Website soon.
As Rob tells me: "It's really exciting that we've been able to put this programme together for Motofest this year. It's been a tough year with very little happening in the way of live music so having a festival is such an amazing venue and in the City of Culture year will be amazing.'
