In August 2017, WDFD Records released a free compilation CD at Stonedeaf Festival featuring 14 tracks from 7 rising rock bands. It received generous praise, so much so that KOL Promotions came up with the idea of a showcase event.
The Station in Cannock are excited to be involved and being a central venue with easy access, good public transport links and ample nearby car parking, not forgetting a great sound system, a date of 11th May 2019 was chosen for the Magnificent 7 Festival.
Sadly, 2 of the bands from the CD – Grand Ultra and Beth Blade and the Beautiful Disasters – were unavailable, but 2 formidable replacements were selected to create a mouth-watering line-up!
THE HOWLING TIDES
STAND AMONGST GIANTS
Tickets are available through SeeTickets:
Keith Lamley, owner of WDFD said “I still can’t quite believe this event is happening! Huge thanks to Shaun Haynes at KOL Promotions for pulling it together, and I am indebted to the bands for agreeing to take part. First and foremost I just want everyone there to go away thinking “wow, weren’t those bands awesome, what a great night”. Above and beyond that I just hope that it brings the bands some much-deserved extra exposure.”
WDFD (Whoop-dee-fucking-doo) was formed in May 2017 with the mission of helping bands take a first step from being unsigned towards a long-term goal of forging a successful career in the music business. It has a co-operative approach with bands providing support and encouragement to each other whilst having access to centralised services and advice.
