Headlining on Friday 1st July will be Royal Rhapsody paying tribute to Freddie Mercury and the music of Queen. The band was formed by lead singer Sebastian Kelly in 2017, and since then, the band have gone from strength to strength, regularly performing in venues across Europe. Sebastian Kelly said, “We are extremely excited to be performing at The Stanhope Weekender in July. There’s no better feeling than headlining a festival. We’ve heard all about the crowds at Stanhope, and we can’t wait to hit that stage.”

With tickets starting from just £30 and those under 16’s gaining free entry when accompanied by a parent, the festival is ideal for anyone wanting to enjoy a weekend of live entertainment.
