Let’s Rock Norwich in Earlham Park has been postponed until 2021 due to coronavirus, but fans can still rock out in their living rooms this summer at an online 80s festival.
All of the 12 Let’s Rock festivals, which take place across the UK, have been rescheduled, but organisers UK Live are making sure music lovers don’t miss out.
In May, they held the first 80s LockdownFest with chart-topping acts from the decade and it proved hugely popular with three million viewers and it raised over £140,000 for their charity partner Child Bereavement UK.
The event is now back by popular demand and 80s LockdownFest 2 will take place on Friday, July 3 from 7pm and the line-up includes Tony Hadley, Wet Wet Wet, Rick Astley, Sister Sledge and The Boomtown Rats.
A spokesman for UK Live said: “Listening to our Let’s Rock audience we felt strongly that we had to try and do just one more, and the timing for the second event is just perfect with the official lockdown being phased out.
“We hope you all enjoy 80s Lockdownfest 2 and cannot wait to be back next year bigger and better!
