Aylesbury's Live In The Park Line-up Announced

Parklife Aylesbury

5:53am 24th February 2016

This summer Parklife aka Live in the Park returns to Aylesbury, with lots more family entertainment.

The official line-up supports local bands such as Skasouls, Bustin' Loose and the Rock Choir and there are no famous faces making an appearance.

Aylesbury's Town Mayor Alison Harrison explained their decision to showcase local talent, she said:

"This is a free event and we want to keep it a free event.

"As a Town Council we're very supportive of local businesses and local artists, there's a real ethos and a real push to support our local talent."

Parklife will encompass Live in the Park, Proms in the Park, Church in the Park and Footie & Fun in the Park brought to you by Aylesbury Town Council and Aylesbury Church Network over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

This year's Live in the Park really builds on the Town Council's ideology to support local.

In addition to the funfair, catering and bars, this year Aylesbury Town Council are adding a new Community Involvement Area, where you will be able to find more information about local businesses and charities, and to have a go at the services and activities they offer.

The very popular Skasouls UK will headline the event, appearing on stage at 8:15pm after 8 hours of amazing live local music.

Skasouls UK have established a reputation playing covers by the Ska bands of the 80s: Madness; The Selecter; Bad Manners; The Specials; together with some older Jamaican ska.

Essential Motion will open the show at 12noon, they perform a mix of all-time classic floor-fillers, top Chart material, deep grooves and some overlooked classics.

Other local bands playing include Aylesbury favourites Zealey & Moore, Lost Minute, The Dung Beatles and Bustin' Loose.

This will be the 25th anniversary year of Bustin' Loose; Rob Oakley, lead vocalist said

"Having performed over 1,100 gigs and approx. 35,500 songs, playing Live in the Park in our 25th year, to an audience of thousands, on such an impressive outdoor stage will be an amazing highlight, we can't wait to rock your socks off".

Acoustic and original music will come from Paul Jackson, Evette Judge, The Ukes of Hazzard, James & Jack Manders, Lucy Mair and the impressive Rock Choir.

On Sunday, Aylesbury Church Network will have their traditional Church in the Park then the newly formatted Footie & Fun in the Park events, before the live music returns - this time with classical and modern music performed by Aylesbury Concert Band and Soprano, Alison Langer during Proms in the Park.

Bring your flags, chairs, picnic blankets and hampers to have a fantastic time at this Great British tradition.

The weekend culminates with a Grand Finale of sparkling fireworks at the end of the Proms at approx. 9:30pm.
