Well WinterStorm XVII is really and truly on its way!
Most of the line up is in place tickets are on sale and we now and we hope that you're as excited as we are about year two of WinterStorm Rock Weekend in Troon on the west coast of Scotland. We've put together the same mix of classic rock form over four decades - bit more NWOBHM with more than a tip of the hit to Reading Festivals of the eighties, some great AOR and Melodic rock and some of the best of the new rock bands around the UK.
Tickets are now on sale for the event and are, we are happy to report, selling fast. Remember this is not a festival with unlimited space - WinterStorm's charm is that it is bijou! Troon Concert Hall is holds 600 so please do not leave it too late just in case!
We know that expectations are high and we hope we can get part way to meeting them as we announce the bands. You can read more here about the 2017 line up on the page below but we can let you know that we have Whitesnake legend Bernie Marsden on with his band; Grahama Bonnet will be flying in with his band, Tyketto and Dare providing some clasicAOR and melodic rock; NWOBHM is featured with the essence of the eighties with Mantis, Tygers and legendary Gillan guitarist Bernie Torme and the new bands are represented by the likes of Mason Hill, Bigfoot, Massive Wagons and Stone Broken.
Weekend tickets have already gone on sale to the previous ticket holders in March and again we also have the monthly Direct Debit option available to all from the beginning of April.
Questions about the third day have poured in... the Sunday is an add on with the aim that it will be a charity fundraising day with an afternoon into early evening line up. This will not be promoted til further down the line but at least you know the concept.
Lots to be done and arranged but the journey towards WinterStorm XVII has commenced.
Let the contdown begin...
