Bon Fest 2012

This year’s tribute to Kirriemuir’s most rock and roll son is fast approaching.

Bon Fest 2012 takes place on Friday, May 4 and Saturday, May 5, and this year has a truly international feel.

Sadly the initial Friday night booking, Bon’s Balls, have had to pull out. However, all the way from Italy the amazing Boun Scotch will be the fantastic replacement.

These guys put on an incredible live show that really captures the excitement and energy of Bon Scott era AC/DC, and this is a show that any rock fan will not want to miss.

Support on the Friday comes from two great local bands, Emerald Sunday and Restless Natives. Both bands are well known for putting on a quality show, and won’t fail to impress. Doors open at 7.30pm.

Then on the Saturday afternoon there will be live music on all day in local pubs, showcasing the best live rock music from Angus and beyond.

This will lead up to another incredible bill in the town hall. This year all the way from Germany the incredible BON - The AC/DC Show. BON are considered to be one of the best AC/DC-Cover bands in Germany, and the fans will get two hours of High Voltage-Rock’n’Roll when BON hit the stage.

Tickets for each night are priced at £12.50, or there is the offer of a reduced two night ticket for £20.

Tickets are now on sale in the Kirriemuir Art Gallery on Reform Street or through www.ticketweb.co.uk. The event has sold out for the past two years, and tickets are going fast, so buy now to avoid disappointment!
