A concert featuring young  'indie' bands is back next month.

Boltstock will take place over the Easter weekend on March 30 at the Roundhouse venue in Halliwell.

The line-up already includes Violet Club, Ambrosia and F3INT and all three  are billed as 'aspirational, young, powerful bands'.

Boltstock will feature talented, young, independent local bands from the north west, playing their own brand of indie and rock-based music, with all ticket fees and donations going to Bolton Hospice in support of their continuing work in helping end of life cancer patients.

Organiser Peter Tate said: “Violet Club are a tight indie band, whilst Ambrosia move into alternative indie-rock and F3INT produce their own brand of technical, contemporary indie rock.

“With catch-laden songs provided by all three bands throughout the night, you’ll be singing them for weeks afterwards and reliving the experience over and over.

“With a mix of self-penned songs which promise to have you cheering and screaming your enjoyment throughout, it will be a night to remember.

“At an affordable £5 it is great value and the knowledge that your fee will be helping make someone’s life better, makes it something you really cannot afford to miss.”

Starting at 7pm and running until late, the event is open to any age group, but under 16s will need to be accompanied by an adult.

Tickets, which are priced at £5, are available through Eventim UK online, at The Roundhouse, Booths Music and you can pay on the door too.
