Out the Box doors open

Have your say

HUNDREDS of music lovers were due to descend on Lower Somercotes tomorrow, June 17, for the second Out the Box festival.

Organisers say more than 500 tickets have been sold for the three-day musical event, which takes place at Amber Valley Rugby Club.

This year’s event will see triple the amount of performers as last year, with 70 acts playing over three stages.

Playing the headline slot on the main stage on Saturday will be human beat-boxing champion, the Petebox, who has entertained audiences at Reading and Glastonbury festivals. Co-organise Rory Black said: “I just love doing this, when it gets to this stage I can’t wait for it to get started.”
