OK, this is a long post full of photos,  but we wanted to include as many as possible in our Hootenanny round up.

Last weekend, the Rock Up, YUK and Enabler Promotions guys pulled off quite frankly a great day of live music at Rockingham Speedway in Corby.

The line up featured rock, indie and hip-hop spread across three stages mixing some of the best local and national aacts.

There were some fantastic performances and we tried to capture as much as we could. Hopefully, what follows is a bit of (almost) everything.

Rocked Up has today revealed the first acts which will play its Hootenanny at Rockingham Motor Speedway this summer.

The promoters held an official launch night for the event at The White Hart in Corby last week and have now announced Essex alt rockers InMe, jazz hip-hop trio Flamer Griller and Corby’s King Purple as the first acts which will be playing.

In a career spanning more than 20 years, InMe have toured the world, released six albums, played on some of the biggest festival stages in the UK and supported the likes of Deftones and Biffy Clyro. They are due to release a new album this year.

InMe will be main support of the Rocked Up main stage. King Purple will be playing the YUK tent and Flame Griller – which features vocalists and producers ExP, JND and Addverse – the hip-hop stage.

Flame Griller sold out The Hut in 2016. They have released two albums and have been championed by the likes of DJ Format, Frankie Boyle and DJ Yoda.

Corby rising stars King Purple have previously supported the likes of Dream Wife, Husky Loops and Jordan Allen. They are currently working on new material.

More than 100 people brought early bird tickets in the first weekend they went on sale. They are available now via www.crowdfunder.co.uk/rocked-up-hootenanny-2018 until March 1.

There will also be an extreme sports area in conjunction with Adrenaline Alley and BBC Introducing in Northampton will also be hosting and filming acoustic sessions in its tent.

Rocked Up are expected to announce more of the line up in the coming weeks and months.
