The road closures during the TT mean that people are being encouraged to get
to the venue early to avoid heavy traffic – and as an incentive those who come early will be able to enjoy some of the best local music the Island has to offer.

This will be a great opportunity for people to enjoy the festival atmosphere, look around the tent, read the programme and get something to eat – all while enjoying some great local music in preparation for the concert in the evening.

Temple will be kicking off the festival on 30th May, followed by Twisted Angels. Other bands performing throughout the week are; On a Friday, Uber Room and Hit the North to name but a few.

In total there will be twelve Manx bands performing during the afternoons, on a special stage located near to the concessions stands.

Jonathan Irving, the festival organiser said, “The Peel Bay Festival is a truly Isle of Man based festival and as such we wanted to give the local bands an opportunity to be involved and perform in this totally unique, infectious and atmospheric environment.

We are starting at 1.30pm every day with all the concessions operational from the time we open right through until we close at midnight. Therefore everyone coming can have 10 hours every day of memorable entertainment starting with the cream of Manx music."

Harry Radford, lead singer for On a Friday, who will be playing on Friday, 1st June said, “We are really excited about performing on the same day as McFly and are really happy that the festival organisers thought of us.”

The manager for Uber Room echoed this by saying “the band are really looking forward to playing in such a big arena and are really pleased to have been asked to perform.”
