This year’s Riverside Rock is set to be another musical extravaganza, with attractions for young and old alike.

Tickets are now on sale for the Jedburgh festival, which takes place at the Jed-Forest RFC home ground at Riverside Park on June 20.

An unmissable event, Riverside Rock is the Borders’ very own family-friendly music festival, where music lovers can enjoy a great day out as well as helping to raise money for this year’s chosen charity, ‘Cash for Kids’, and sports organisations around the Scottish Borders.

Among the bands playing at this year’s festival are From The Jam, featuring original The Jam member Bruce Foxton.

Also appearing will be versatile, Hawick-based Folk-rockers Scocha. Always a star attraction, they are delighted to have been asked to play Riverside Rock for a second year, and are looking forward to the big day.

Tynesiders Blistered Molly are a female-fronted rock band inspired by the likes of AC/DC, Aerosmith and The Kinks. They have covered songs by various rock artists including Guns ‘n’ Roses, AC/DC, Jimi Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Aerosmith, Tom Petty, The Kinks and Led Zeppelin.

But there’s more than music. The organisers are keen to stress that this is a family-friendly event, and kids (and adults) will be delighted with the wild and wacky selection of rides and attractions.

Tickets are on sale now, priced at £25 adults, £15 under 18s, under-5s free. Go to www.riversiderock.co.uk, or call 0333 666 3366, Monday to Friday, 9am-7pm. Local campsites and B&Bs are filling up fast.
