The line up for Aylesbury's Live in the Park has been announced.

Headlining the family entertainment festival will be the Bon Jovi Experience, the only tribute act to have actually played with the band themselves.

This year there'll also be a second stage which will host a variety of local and original artists including Lucy Mair, Ed Cusick, Lauren James Ray, A Little Bit Country, Billy Watman and Callow Saints.

The main stage will play host to a broad range of styles and genres, and it will be opened at 12 noon by pop and rock cover band NBS. 

They will be followed by Eton Rivals who play a blend of punk, mod and ska, and Gravity Blue and Michael Lee who provide their own piece of rock and pop. 

Then comes rock band The Nightshades followed by Big Band Swing.  

In addition to the music there will be traditional fun fair rides, a 85ft inflatable assault course and a bouncy castle. In the Community Involvement Area there are businesses, charities and organisations providing more free activities, games, fun and entertainment, including face-painting from Zoomania, safe sun-gazing with UKAstronomy, music lessons from XYZMusic and skills with Affinity Babington, with lots more still to be confirmed.

Chair of the Communities Committee Cllr Allison Harrison says:

“Those of you who have attended the past two years at Live in the Park have expressed your enjoyment and praised its growth and commitment to the local community. 

"We take pride in providing you with an event that is enjoyed by so many people, showcasing local music, businesses and charities in a relaxed, safe and friendly environment. 

"The entire Parklife weekend is the highlight to our programme of events across the year, it’s a joy to work with so many other organisations to bring this mini-festival to Aylesbury.”

Later it’s Stars in the Park; where you can join the amateur experts from UKAstronomy to find out more about the stars, planets and solar system.  On the Sunday  Aylesbury Church Network host an open air church service, Church in the Park, followed by Footie and Music in the Park

The entire weekend culminates with Proms in the Park, where people are invited to bring picnics, rugs, flags and their singing voices for a 45 piece concert band, soloists and a guest interval performance by The Queens Park Centre Jazz Band.  A spectacular firework display will finish the entire weekend at around 9:30pm on Sunday 27th August.
