This weekend will see the revival of a popular music festival in Sleaford

Re-Vibe has been put together as a nostalgic throwback to the town’s Vibe festival which ran from 1999 on St George’s Academy field showcasing local talent until disbanding in 2004.

Sleaford Town Team are behind the new format, which will this time feature nine well-known local acts and take place as part of a family fun day at Sleaford Town Football Club’s Eslaforde Road ground.

Bev Jenkins, from the Team, said: “We have been working on it steadily for the last nine months, recruiting bands, stall holders, sound and lighting engineers and sponsors.”

It will be free admission and be open from noon until 10pm, featuring nine live bands.

There will be face painting, bouncy castles, food, bars and stalls.

Mrs Jenkins said: “When we formed the Town Team we talked about this and have been organising it since then.”

She thanked the football club, Ambient Sound and Aurora Security for their input.

One of the bands, Copper Black, includes Ryan Frost, son of Mark Frost, a member of Sleaford rockers Keep The Faith that opened the first festival.

The line-up includes sounds for all tastes including folk, heavy metal and indie.

Other bands set to play are: Kinfolk, Sandfly, Jasper Cain, Afterlife, The House of Ghosts, Convince The People, The Saboteurs and Glass Onion.
