HUNDREDS of acts have been lined up for Glaston-BURY over the bank holiday weekend.

Psychedelic rockers The Water Diamonds are among the live performers on Monday across four outdoor stages and 15 venues.

The band, formed in 2006, is Dave Layton on drums, Steve Seddon on guitar and vocals and Ian Woolford on bass.

Glaston-BURY first took place in 2008 and was started to celebrate Bury’s music scene and raise money for Bury Hospice.

Last year, a virtual event took place, due to Covid-1,9 in memory of Bury Hospice fundraiser, Michelle King.

Drummer Dave Layton said: “We’re very glad to be coming back to Bury for our third Glaston-Bury, we’ve got a real affinity for Bury’s black puddings, markets, and shopping areas.

“When the pandemic started, we thought we had played in Bury for the last time, but we’re looking forward to coming back, seeing other bands, networking and potentially collaborating with them in future."

This year’s Glaston-Bury will feature 200 bands and performers with entry wristbands costing £8, and all proceeds going towards Bury Hospice and other causes.

Bands performing after The Water Diamonds include 10 Volt, Deadwing, Das Ringmeisters, Cobalt Tales, and Deaf Valley. Glaston-Bury will start at noon, and wristbands will be available on the day from the ticket office on Castle Street, which grants entry to all venues.
