The event, now in its third year, raises funds for the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital's paediatric department.

It has helped to look after Jasmine Lewis, who suffers from an extremely rare life threatening illness called Juvenile Dermatomyositis or JDM, which has no known cure.

Jasmine, 10, from Hempton, was diagnosed with JDM when she was two and has to have weekly medication and regular trips to Great Ormond Street Hospital, in London, for assessments. Rock4Jasmine has teamed up with car club, Burt's Boyz, to hold a three day music and car show on May 6 - 8. It will consist of cars from classic, modern, vintage to hot rods, ending with a show and shine on the Sunday with trophies for winners of each category.

Musically, it will focus on Norfolk-based acts including Little Red Kings, Chapter of Wolves, Fiends, Tom Happy , Ultra Ego and Shock Hazard. There will also be an acoustic stage with with artists like Grant Ley, Eleanor Howard, Couch, Starbuck, Paul Fawcett and Afoostic.

This year bands will be performing on stage inside a large marquee inside the main stadium at Fakenham Town Football Club. There will be onsite camping facilities available at the football ground. Ticket prices are £5 for entry on Friday evening and £10 for entry on Saturday or Sunday, or £20 for an entire weekend pass, with camping £10 per pitch. Click here for tickets.
