Bank holiday festival fun with the Happy Mondays at Stone Valley South

Loading ....

Stone Valley Festival South is returning to East Herts in 2020 with live legends including Happy Mondays, The Boomtown Rats and The Undertones.

After a smash-hit second year, organisers of the original Stone Valley music festival in Stanhope, County Durham, are travelling back to picturesque Hillside Farm at Great Amwell.

The line-up also features crowd-pleasers from last year including the sharp-suited, scissor-kicking Bruce Foxton with From the Jam and sing-along favourites The Dualers.

Once again the Geordie celebration of Northern soul, mod, ska and punk music will start on Friday May 22 and extend over the Saturday and Sunday, leaving revellers to recover on the Whitsun bank holiday Monday.

A spokesman said: “There’s going to be three family-friendly days of awesome live music, for campers and day visitors alike, with a new, bigger outdoor stage and video screens, great facilities, rides, entertainment and much more.

“Stone Valley Festival has a fantastic atmosphere, friendly and relaxed for all ages, in a lovely setting, full of like-minded people who love great music and a good time.

“We’ll be bringing the finest mix of mod, ska, indie, Northern Soul, punk, soul, Sixties, great DJs and more.

“The brilliant live music line-up next year has what the crowds have come to expect at SVF – something for everyone, with legendary bands including Happy Mondays, The Boomtown Rats, The Selecter, The Undertones, Skids, From the Jam, The Dualers, Hugh Cornwell [of The Stranglers], The Farm, Secret Affair, Death of Guitar Pop, The Blockheads and many, many more, plus DJ sets from some legendary names.”

While some of the bands may be missing original members, such as The Blockheads playing without the late lamented Ian Dury, others are close to their original line-up, like Happy Mondays and The Boomtown Rats, with iconic frontmen Shaun Ryder and Bob Geldof ready to rouse the crowds.

The spokesman said: “Food and drink will be at the same value-for-money prices as last year, with fully licensed bars, including a real ale bar and a big range of food.

“Unlike your average festival, SVF won’t empty your wallet. There are full 24/7 secure camping facilities, free car parking, trade stalls, friendly staff, free drinking water, showers and lots of toilets – all set in a large site, but everything within close walking distance.

“If you love great live music then come and join the party.”
