The majority of the main stage line up for WinterStorm 2018 has now been unveiled with all but a couple of slots still being held open for our StormBreakers winner and a late announcement or two!
The the very last of the public tickets are now on sale for WinterStorm XVIII and unbelievably our wee rock weekend in Troon is heading for a complete sell out on both days! Thank you for your support!
We have also pretty much filled up the second Jagermeister Stage which this year will feature a mix of local acts and some unexpected big names in there including an acoustic set from the amazing Terry Brock, the return of Syteria and up and coming Scottish favourites Black King Cobra amongst a load more. Read more via the links below.
After the 'Storm is also attracting some wide attention too. We thought long and hard about extending the programme into a third day but felt that this was different enough that we should try it. It's an early start, limited capacity seated acoustic event and is only available to ticket holders of WinterStorm. We think it's got the potential to be a superb wind down event with the voices of Geoff Tate, Terry Brock and Steve Overland - the first two supported by their bands and the latter by the wonderful guitar of Jim Kirkpatrick.
Over the next month we'll be going to final design on 2019 merchandise and pre orders will be available we plan from September 1st. Tickets will not be sent out as usual until the beginning of November at which point we'll be releasing the final stage times and order for all stages.
We're currently planning the bars and catering along with product ranges and we hope to be able to announce some stuff on that during the month of August too. As last year we are even more determined to take our footprint home with us and we will be stitching our own Reduce Single use campaign firmly on everything we do for 2018 and beyond and again August should see the launch of our plans to reduce waste at our event and beyond.
Friday Night Rock Shows Live
For those that live within easier reach of Troon you may also be interested in our new and semi regular Friday Night Rock Shows - we have a series of live events hosted by Tom Russell kicking off in August with Zal Cleminson's Sin Dogs and featuring bands such as The King Lot, Snakecharmer, Rhino's Revenge, Attica Rage and more to be announced. We could do with your support as keeping a 160 capacity rock venue afloat in Troon may be a challenge! More on the link below.
