Brand New Heavies top the bill at Hastings’ newest festival

A sunshine-filled day of soul, funk, reggae & hip hop is promised for Hastings this May bank holiday Sunday as Music First Festival presents the ‘Summer Soul BBQ’ at The Oval.

The first 1,000 tickets are available at a discounted early-bird price and are likely to be snapped up in record time thanks to a tremendous line-up that includes such household names at The Brand New Heavies, Sugar Hill Gang, Jungle Brothers and the Furious 5 (featuring Grandmaster Melle Mel and Scorpio)

As the organisers say: “A line up like this comes to town just once in a lifetime, spread the word!”
