Rockingham Festival 2017

"...slices of humble pie to all the naysayers that said Vince Neil wouldn't show, would be crap, didn't deserve to play etc. He blew the roof off. This was like watching the Crue in a small club only with a better Mick Mars, a better Nikki Sixx and a most definitely better Tommy Lee. This was gold and then some...." - Rob Evans - AOR Underground/Powerplay Magazine

"...the third year of Rockingham Festival , the natural successor to the much loved Firefest in its autumnal Nottingham position, it really felt as if the festival came of age...the best Rockingham yet" - Get Ready To Rock

"...once again a great weekend, superbly well organized and filled with friendship and surprises...2017 is gonna be a hard year to follow!" - Uber Rock

"...Besides the phenomenal bands which filled the bill and the friendly atmosphere, I have to say how well organised and run the event was. Everyone wearing an item of clothing emblazoned with 'Crew' was seen working their socks off, and forever had a smile on their face - a true credit to the festival. Everything ran like clockwork, and it was a pleasure to attend...." - Denim & Blether




Rockingham Festival 2016

"...It was the perfect end to the festival to witness a true great of AOR...the standard of acts at Rockingham this year was almost uniformly high, providing a memorable experience. In the final analysis the second year of the festival and first in a new venue had to be counted as a success, and it looks as if solid foundations have been laid for the long term..." - Get Ready To Rock

"...a second Rockingham festival, although in a new location...some of the bands announced were the kind of acts that I couldn't have dreamed of seeing, major surprises..." - Rock United

"...Delivered at short notice, the second Rockingham festival proved to be a wonderful weekend of fabulous music...this was a great festival..." - Powerplay Magazine

"...undoubtedly one of the highlights of the melodic rock calendar..." - Screaming Guitars




Rockingham Festival 2015

"...a memorable weekend of a variety of melodic rock, old and new, with some performances that will not be forgotten in a hurry. Any sceptics who chose to stay away missed out and with a healthy turnout, hopefully foundations have been put in place for the future and Rockingham Festival will continue to be a regular gathering of like-minded music fans and a must-see event in the future festival calendar..." - Get Ready To Rock

"The event brought together a good spectrum of acts from across the melodic rock genre, with something to cater for most, if not all tastes, among its target demographic, and it was extremely well-organized, especially in terms of the efficiency of the crews working on the stage turnarounds..." - PlanetMosh

"...the weekend was a massive success. Everyone from the security to the bar staff were courteous and polite. The change-over time between bands was kept to a bare minimal with little or no issues. The sound from the majority of the bands was great with no hiccups..." - My Global Mind

"Rockingham was well run and ultimately a weekend filled with great craic with good friends and lots of (largely) great music. I'm sure Team PlanetMosh won't be the only ones looking forward to it returning for a second year..." - PlanetMosh

"With all that in mind I can't wait for next year. Rockingham is not Firefest and is not meant to be. What it is is the beginning of another great melodic rock festival..." - My Global Mind

"...the first ever Rockingham proving, by and large, a major success..." - PlanetMosh
