The day will also be raising money for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

Chris Bones, chairman, said: “We are so thrilled to have a new music day back in the Ipswich area. Our aim is to become firmly established on the East Anglian music scene and will pride ourselves in being one of the few events to encourage local youth bands; giving them the opportunity to perform alongside more established acts, using professional sound equipment and engineers.”
