This year see’s the 5th Nice n Sleazy festival making a welcome return to Morecambe on the late spring bank holiday weekend. (At least 4 other towns and venues have made approaches to stage this growing festival: but we are holding firm and keeping it in this wonderful town) Once again the festival will bring punks together from across the country to savour the festival atmosphere. Many who attend the Nice n Sleazy Festival are veterans of the Holidays in the Sun and the Wasted festivals that were held in the town a few years ago. Most of the punks just love returning to the town, and with many of them now bringing there families along to enjoy just what Morecambe has to offer on this fun filled weekend: it can only be good for the town. Once again we will see bands from across the country performing including has usual a strong contingent from Scotland, Bradford and the north east: hopefully we will also be able give stage time to some local bands (please get in touch) Punk legends Eddie and the Hot Rods (Do Anything You Wanna Do) will be one of the headlining bands alongside John Robb’s band Goldblade “whose live performances are legendary”, Their will also be one or two surprises again including what is probably the best Stranglers tribute at the moment Straighten Out will simply be un-missable! They will be playing all the Stranglers hits and more including Nice n Sleazy “the festival was named after this hit” Also after last years success of the comedy lounge, we will be showcasing a lot more comedy and alternative stuff!
