Organisers of the Lubstock music festival in Lubenham, near Market Harborough, are planning to make it even bigger in 2016 following its huge success this past weekend.

Festival-goers flocked to see headline acts northern rock band Racing Glaciers and five-piece indie band Amber Run during the three-day event, from Friday, July 17, until Sunday, July 19.

The event, now in its sixth year, was a complete sell-out.

In the dance tent the line-up included Rusty Egan, an electronic dance music pioneer and London club regular, and Miss Pink, one of the finest drum and bass/jungle DJs in the UK.

Kate Cazenove, organiser of the not-for-profit festival, said: “This year’s event was a resounding success and many people have told us they thought it was the best yet.

“For the first time we were completely sold-out, with 500 people attending, and we had to turn many people away at the weekend.

“We are now looking at making Lubstock even bigger next year.”
