Emerson, Lake & Palmer and ZZ Top To Headline New London Festival

December 7, 2009
Emerson, Lake & Palmer and ZZ Top To Headline New London FestivalEmerson, Lake & Palmer and ZZ Top are set to headline a brand spanking new rock festival in London next year.

Both rock veterans play the inaugural High Voltage Festival which takes place on July 24 and July 25, 2010 at Victoria Park in East London.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer are reuniting especially for the event to mark their 40th anniversary while ZZ Top will play their first UK headline slot in 25 years.

Many more acts are set to be announced in the coming months.

The event is being run in conjunction with Classic Rock Magazine whose Editor-In-Chief Scott Rowley says: “High Voltage is the festival all true rock fans have been waiting for - custom built by rock fans for rock fans. The High Voltage team have been to every rock festival imaginable - we’re taking what we’ve learned to build a festival unlike any other.

“First of all there’s the music: two amazing headliners AND three unique stages specially curated to cater for different sides of the rock audience, and a brilliant supporting cast playing special must-see sets.

“Then there’s the festival itself. The facilities will be second to none: great food, proper beer, clean toilets, deluxe hospitality packages, designated hotels, free shuttle transport. This is somewhere you take the whole family.”

Tickets cost £130 for the weekend or £75 for day tickets. There is no booking fee.
