“Because Lions is a charity, all our members give their time and services free of any charge and, ever since 2013 when Newquay Beer Festival started, every single act that has appeared on our stages has done so without asking for payment.,” said Lion Phil Bunt.
“From personal feedback, I know how much bands enjoy performing because of the appreciative and responsive audience, and many have come back to perform year after year. We’ve already got a lot of stage slots filled but we’d be delighted to hear from any other bands or artists who would like to get involved.”
Both stages are managed throughout the three days by a professional sound engineer from Gold Sponsor, Dymond Audio, and this makes a real difference to the acts who can turn up and play without having the normal time-consuming efforts put in to setting up amps, microphones and other equipment. There’s even have a full drum kit on stage for use by bands if they require it.
