Among this year’s main music stage performers are Echoes of Pompeii (Pink Floyd tribute), Eliminator (ZZ Top tribute), The Classic Rock Experience, Kashmir (Le Zeppelin tribute) and Hi Infidelity (’80s rock).
Among the eclectic mix of performers on the community stage are the gritty pop stylings of Puritan Pine, singer/songwriter Andrew Robert Palmer, singer/guitarist Thomas Comerford, and the post-punk sounds of The Sentinels.
