Charity music event set to Rock Inverness
The Sugababes and Mcfly are today, Friday 26th February, the latest acts to be announced to headline Rock 4 Life’s Sunday’s line-up at Whiteness, Inverness.
Rock 4 Life, taking place on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd May will be the first live public show in Scotland of the new line-up of the Sugababes.
R&B singer Lemar will add to the star-studded Sunday line-up, while Saturday sees Status Quo, Steve Harley and Donnie Munro create a rock / pop contrast to the event, providing entertainment for all the family over the weekend.
Caledonian Productions director Tobias Leask said: “We are thrilled to welcome such big names to the Highlands and are glad that we can offer our audience a range of artists to suit every musical taste.
“Playing host to some rock legends on the Saturday and welcoming some fantastic pop acts for the Sunday, we hope to provide a well rounded event for everyone – and all for a great cause.”
Rock 4 Life will raise money for Highland Hospice, the only hospice which serves adults with incurable life-limiting disease in the Highlands of Scotland.
David Welch, Director of Fundraising and Communications at Highland Hospice said: “Rock 4 Life is a fantastic idea and an event which will be gladly welcomed in the highlands. We appreciate all of the work being done by Caledonian Productions to raise money for the Hospice, and for introducing Inverness to such an exciting event.”
Caledonian Productions took the decision last month to move the two day music event to Whiteness situated between Ardersier and Nairn.
Whiteness Property Company Ltd is donating the use of the site for the charity music event.
