The Rock and Bike Festival is celebrating being granted a permanent licence to host the event at its new home in Long Eaton and will return to mark its 20th anniversary in July 2024. The festival will run from midday Thursday to midday Sunday.

The festival has moved around a number of homes down the years and initially faced some resistance from residents last year following negative publicity, though has now won everyone over after they saw no problems at the July 2023 event, which received much praise for its organisation. The festival now proudly holds a permanent lifetime license to hold the three-day event at Longmoor Lane annually in July.

Aside from the music you'll find good food, great beers, great family entertainment, and creative arts & crafts.


In light of their 50th Anniversary, the legendary Showaddywaddy, will be taking centre stage over the weekend, along with Queen (Now I'm Here), a tribute band named after a Queen single also celebrating its 50th anniversary next year, and world-famous Benidorm Tom (Tom Jovi).

Other acts booked so far include Floyd in the Flesh (Pink Floyd), A Foreigners Journey, Hung Like Hanratty, UK Chicago Blues Brothers, Volbeaten (Volbeat tribute), The Spirit Levellers, Midnite City, Ultimate Whitesnake, Vulva, The Spontanes, Rattus Inheritus (Stranglers tribute), Spam, Urban Hillbillys, Anti-nowhere League, Tick Tick Boom, plus many more top acts still to come including some local young talent.
