BREAKING NEWS:- Over the past weeks I have been working quietly to sort out line up times/days etc plus also having the awesome vote to open the Festival which the brilliant Crowsaw won… But also I have been chatting to a band who I have wanted on the Festival for a very long time !!!! things always conspired against us for one reason or another…… this week a message from Fahran asking if they could possibly play Sunday and not Saturday due to reasons which were unavoidable opened an opportunity for me again, plus having a great day with these guys at Les-Fest and a reet good chat sort of made this all possible… So Fahran will now be Co Headlining the Sunday with The NLC ALL STARS and at long last I have been able to confirm the awesome Falling Red as our Saturday headliners..I hope you agree this just gets BETTER and BETTER and BIGGER every year…I am one happy BiG D right now and hopefully you will all support us and fill Nottingham next 2nd & 3rd MAY…. The guys are awesome and will have a full hour set to play brilliant hit after hit..Don’t forget the Cheese !!!

Updates from Big D 12th December
11.41 am BREAKING NEWS: It is unfortunate that 28 Shots have been pulled from the event, The 2 members who were impicit in getting the band on the Festival have both gone and with no correspondence from the Band of any style I have taken a decision to remove them from the line up, some may say harsh but I have to be sure I am dealing with bands and people who are 100% with us, I have sent a message to the band with again no reply…… BUT I have got the replacement all ready for you guys……
12.07 pm MORE BREAKING NEWS…… LINE UP CHANGE… With the loss of 28 Shots we needed a Band who can deliver on ALL levels, one who will not only get Sunday started in top Loud Rockin fashion but will kill it and get you guys on your feet after that saturday hangover…. I have been barracked, sworn at and called a loon for leaving these guys off the 2015 line up. SO I am righting my wrong and would like to welcome very good friends of ours and a band you all love back into the family ..The boys from Burton on Trent THE MIGHTY THEIAuk !!!!!!!!!
