Hawkwind Tour dates and Hawkfest details announced

Hawkwind

Legendary space rockers HAWKWIND will embark on a major UK tour in December 2010 in support of their new studio album “Blood of the Earth”.  

The nationwide tour consists of 13 dates. Tickets are priced at £20, are available from the National Credit Card Hotline 0871 2301101 or can be ordered from www.seetickets.com. The tour kicks off at the Holmfirth Picturedome on Friday Decemeber 3rd. Support for all dates comes from UK rockers “The Jokers”.

In addition to the UK tour, Hawkwind will appear at “HAWKFEST 2010” next month, which returns to Afton Farm on the Isle Of White. Curated by the members of Hawkwind, Hawkfest takes place between August 27th and 29th. Hawkfest originally came about after the breakdown of the free festival movement in the mid to late 1980's. The band felt that major festivals had lost what made them great. Gone was the intimate, carnival atmosphere and the colourful characters, only to be replaced with huge-scale commercialism. 

Wanting to get back to the roots of what made festivals so enjoyable, Hawkwind constructed a family friendly event where children could play and explore, whilst parents watched great music, safe in the knowledge that the kids would be safe. Tickets are priced at £70, for further info visit www.hawkfest.com.

HAWKWIND'S "HAWKFEST"

Date: Friday August 27th – Sunday August 29th 
Venue: Afton Farm, Freshwater, Isle Of White, PO40 9UE
Tickets: £70 
Booking URL: www.hawkfest.com
Tickets via post: Hawkfest Tickets, PO Box 617, Newcastle, NE15 7WA
Venue Address: Afton Farm, Freshwater, Isle Of White, PO40 9UE

In addition to the December UK tour, Hawkwind will appear at their aptly named festival HAWKFEST, which this year returns to The Isle of White’s Afton Farm.

Taking place between August 27th and 29th, Afton Farm is the site of the iconic 1970 “Isle of Wight festival”, where, 40 years ago to the day, Hawkwind played outside the fence, in protest at the over commercialism of the event.

HAWKFEST came about after the breakdown of the free festival movement in the mid to late 80's. Throughout their illustrious career, Hawkwind have played at many of the major music festivals and, in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, they felt that these events had lost what made them great. Gone was the intimate, carnival atmosphere and the colourful characters, which were replaced with huge-scale commercialism.

The band wanted to get back to the roots of what made festivals so enjoyable, they longed for a return to that vibe and feel; they wanted to create a genuinely family friendly event where children could play and explore, whilst parents watched great music, safe in the knowledge that the kids would be safe.

The unique festival experience the band were searching for was achieved by makingHAWKFEST a private party rather than a full blown commercial event, and limiting the numbers to around 1500 ticket holders, plus bands, crew and performers. All tickets are sold in advance and attendees must be the holder of a Hawkwind Passport, (free to obtain from the officialHAWKFEST site, and currently held proudly by over 7000 fans worldwide).

While the 2010 line has not yet been fully announced, so far, amongst the 40 bands appearing at HAWKFEST, we have - Here and Now, Dick Taylor and the Hillmans, Mr Quimby’s Beard, Tragic Roundabout, Tarantism, AOS3, Headjam, Krankschaft, The Lloyd Langton Group, Syren, Girlschool (tbc) and Hawkwind offshoot band TOSH (Technicians of Spaceship Hawkwind). All the usual children’s activities and music workshops with members of Hawkwind, will take place and, of course, Question Time with Matthew Wright...!

Tickets for HAWKFEST 2010 are priced at £70 and include all camping and parking. Children 12 and under go free. These are available from the official Hawkwind and Hawkfest websites (www.hawkwind.comwww.hawkfest.com) or via cheque to the following address:
