FLASHFEST !! Sunday 22 May 3.45pm until late
The Curlew, Petersfield Road, Havant.
7 Great Bands for a Fiver !
You may not have heard of ‘The Flash’ but it’s an independent DAB station promoting live music in the Portsmouth-Emsworth area. Initially it was an experiment by Ofcom but the trial has been so successful that it’s been extended for a further 2 years.
As a direct consequence the station needs to fundraise so FlashFest is bringing you 7 of the top bands in the area – and it’s just a fiver for a ticket (you’re welcome to pay more !).
Tickets from Harbour Records (Emsworth),
Check the station out:
