Bus Stop Over 2018.... we're going back to the Old Skool....
The theme is.....There is no theme.... This show has always been about The Vws, The Music, Chilling out and having fun..... and we were doing this way before shows had to be based around cops n robbers or gimp outfits..
Express Yourself or Be Yourself..........if you want to do fancy dress thats fine by us and there will be some spot prizes for ones we like and it all adds to the fun of the fair..... most importantly enjoy yourself and bring the party !!!.
The show was started many years ago in a farmers field..and though times and shows have changed we still like to keep that back to basics family camp over vibe..
So the marquee is back for our main stage and headline acts.. located adjacent to the woods so with all the sides open and the trees decorated some proper outdoor dancing & raving under the stars can be experienced.
Our wide range of caterers will be right by the Marquee & the trade village opposite for you to browse and grab some vw and vintage lifestyle bargains..
The Bus Bar will now be situated ( right by the main gate and main toilet/shower block )
in the 7500sq ft Newark Pavillion...serving Ales, Lager, Cider, Wines & Spirits….. There will be plenty of seating to chill out and laid back tunes throughout the day.
Two new toilet and shower blocks will be situated in the camping areas meaning every aspect and facility of the show is literally within a few minutes walk from your van.
Friday night is Rock Night on the main stage….
" Pure Rock Derby " club night Hosts live acts…
Echo Fire & SMALL TALK , all raw power playing covers and original material all rock and blues based, so expect classics from Ac/Dc to Zeppelin and everything inbetween.
EchoFire are Creative hard working musicians... despite our main
sound being derived from a rock / grunge sound we have a passion for all types
We have been writing and performing as Echo Fire since 2006 However Michael and
Martin Have performed together since 1998 and have an
abilty to second guess each other musically which enables them to write some
catchy tracks which keep you wanting more. Dave Chapman joined the band in june
2015 after the band had a 2 year break ,Dave's solid back beat has allowed
the band to once again not only refresh its sound has also continue to write new
