Phoenix Festival V!
Phoenix Festival V will wow the crowds with the finest and the best tribute acts you’ll probably ever see in the world!
In its fifth year, this much loved summer free festival will bring 2 Tone Ska and intergalactic Rock and Pop to the Abbey Grounds, Cirencester on Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th August, with special guests, Los Palmas 6 and David Live.
Los Palmas 6 are a seven piece authentic Madness tribute band of top class musicians with experience of world tours and major festivals. They have played and recorded with ska and punk giants, such as Bad Manners, the UK SUBS and Peter and the Test Tube Babies. With their authentic sound and look their show promises to be one hundred percent pure madness.
David Live capture and celebrate the sounds of David Bowie over the decades. This tribute act and cover band comprise five talented musicians, three of whom are brothers, and bring a selection of Bowie’s many musical characters to the stage. Described as “spot-on” and a “must-see”, prepared to be wowed.
Charlie Fowler of David Live said “The guys and I are thrilled to be asked to headline this years’ Phoenix Festival. Having seen Who’s Next and Oas-is last year we’re honoured to be following such great acts.
We will play a lot of Bowie’s hits for newer fans and a fair sprinkling of lesser known album cuts for the Bowie-lovers. It will be a fantastic chance to reflect on his huge breadth of work and turn on even more people to the awesome David Bowie”
Glen Moreman, Festival Organiser said “We are so excited to have these two very passionate and talented tribute acts at the Phoenix this year. They are sure to move festival goers in more ways than one!”
