Having postponed their 2020 summer series due to the current pandemic, Let’s Rock have confirmed the rescheduled dates for summer 2021.
Lets Rock Wales will now take place on June 5 2021 at Tredegar Park, Newport and features Adam Ant, OMD, ABC, Howard Jones, Kim Wilde, Chesney Hawkes, The Art of What?, T’Pau, Betty Boo and others.
The recent LockdownFest, organised by Let’s Rock in aid of their official charity partner Child Bereavement UK, raised over £130,000 for the charity. The online event – which featured live-at-home sets from Let’s Rock legends including Tony Hadley, Wet Wet Wet, ABC, Jools Holland, Howard Jones, Midge Ure, and Jason Donovan – was livestreamed on YouTube and drew an estimated audience of 2 million. LockdownFest was trending at No.2 during the evening, above Britain’s Got Talent and just below Eurovision 2020: Europe Shine A Light.
Let’s Rock organisers UK Live said:
“We’re humbled by the generosity shown by our audience in raising £130,000 for Child Bereavement UK. We put together LockdownFest because we aren’t able to raise funds for the charity at our events this year, and because we felt we all needed a bit of a pick me up. There were so many great performances on the night, big thanks to all the artists who took part.
“This year really has proved that Let’s Rock is a family, and so finally we’d like to say a huge thank you to the Let’s Rock family for the incredible loyalty and understanding you’ve shown us during these exceptional times. We all deserve one hell of a party next summer!”
