The Willow Festival will make a long awaited return to Peterborough in 2012. The original organisers of the festival will bring the event back to the Peterborough Embankment during the final weekend of May 2012, supported by Peterborough City Council.
The Willow Festival returns after a nine year hiatus from the city’s music
calendar. The original event ran between 1998 and 2003. By 2003 the
festival grew to become one of the largest FREE live music festivals in
Europe, with over 50,000 visitors and was the biggest live music festival
in the city’s history.
The 2012 festival will showcase 120 live bands from across the UK and
other parts of the world. An eclectic mix of music will take place across
six stages over three days at the festival on the
Peterborough Embankment. TWF will remain the same scale and format as in
previous years, but with further attractions on the site.
On Friday eve at 6.15pm The Llamas are playing at The Willow Festival. I have played bass with The Llamas since 1978. We disbanded in 1981 and 20 years later we reformed. The Llamas are now writing and performing new material and very pleased to be asked to play at The Willow Festival.
