The inaugural GRAVITY Festival UK, being held at The Station in Cannock on October 19th 2019, is already heading towards being a sold-out event – much to the delight of the organisers, venues and bands that will make the celebration of melodic hard rock such a special day.
Headlined by Glaswegians Mason Hill (2016 Highway to Hell Winners, Steelhouse, Download, Planet Rockstock) the event will take over The Station venue in Cannock, Staffordshire for an afternoon and evening which will also see an air guitar competition and guest DJ sets between bands. Joining Mason Hill will be rising stars Dead Man’s Whiskey, Collateral (fresh from their cruise with Bon Jovi), The Burning Crows, Wicked Stone, 4th Labyrinth, Fugitive, Trident Waters, Mad Haven, Jesse’s Divide and False Hearts.
Gravity Festival UK 2019 is being held at The Station venue in Cannock, Staffordshire – which has seen a meteoric rise in popularity with both bands and punters alike due to its central location, easy parking within 2 minute walk, and facilities for the disabled – in addition to great sound and competitively priced bar. The special guest compere for the day will the effervescent Pete K Mally so expect some of his trademark humour to enliven proceedings!
It will be Mason Hill’s only remaining show in England in 2019 – before they release their brand-new album early 2020. Scott Taylor, front-man of Mason Hill commented, “This year we’ve been focusing on our new album which means we’ve not been booking many shows – so we’re absolutely delighted to be headlining at the first Gravity Festival in October, we’re really looking forward to showcasing new material alongside some old favourites!”
Nico Rogers, vocalist of Dead Man’s Whiskey had this to say, “We’re delighted to be playing Gravity Festival this year. Whilst being a London band we’ve always said the Midlands feels like a second home, so we can’t wait to return on 19th October and give Cannock a night to remember. We’re also super excited to be joining such a strong bill, with Mason Hill and Collateral to name a few, so we want to give a massive shout out to KOL Promotions for putting this together. Expect a balls-to-the-wall rock’n’roll show with brand new material and a few surprises in between. See you soon!”
The Burning Crows can’t wait either, “This’ll be our first time at The Station for the first ever Gravity Festival and we’re genuinely buzzing for it. Grab your tickets. Bring a friend. Be there.”
The event is kindly sponsored by Marshall, Body Art Advertising, WDFD Records and The New Wave of Classic Rock Facebook Group (NWOCR). Andrew Powell, MD of Body Art, stated, “We at Body Art are honoured to be working with the guys from KOL Promotions and Rockpulse – we firmly believe the first ever Gravity Festival UK will be a huge success and leave the punters wanting more!”.
