MUSIC fans are spoilt for choice at this years 13th annual Rede Fest in the Rede valley.

After last years event attracted around 650 festival-goers, organisers are hoping for similar numbers at the two-day event in Rochester.

Redefest is a non-profit, volunteer-run music festival boasting over 12 hours of live music, children’s activities, local food, real ale and workshops for adults and children.

Two stages, the main and bar stage, will host live music, poetry, storytelling and comedy on Friday and Saturday.

The Odels will headline proceedings on the Bar stage on Friday night. Saturday sees both the Bar and Main stage in action with Takahaad in charge of headlining Saturday.

Other bands featuring over the weekend include the comically-named Hair of the Derg, the Whippet Beans and Steampunk Allotment.

Adult and kids activities include performance poetry, storytelling, face painting, balloon modelling and pottery classes.

On Saturday, children and adults are encouraged to take part in workshops as Simon Wood will teach festival-goers how to play the hang drum and Ian K. Brown invites attendees play the ukulele.

A variety of food, from wood-fired pizzas, fish and chips and Thai food, will be on offer throughout the weekend.

The Redefest bar will also offer a selection or real ales from local breweries, cider, wine, beer and soft drinks.

The festival is located behind Camien Cafe on the A68, and the cafe will be open to serve food throughout; hot dogs and crepes will also be available from the Crepe Van.

Redefest takes place on Friday, August 2 and Saturday, August 3.
