Sixth Loaded festival to raise funds for Cords4life
7:20am Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
THE sixth annual Loaded Festival will be taking place in a Kidderminster pub to raise money for Cords4life.
The event, featuring 10 acts, will be held at the Royal Exchange, in New Road, on Saturday.
Kidderminster band the Karpet Kickers will be headlining the show supported by rockers Sons of Beaches.
Sister Shotgun and Time of the Mouth will be returning to the fundraising festival and Rip Tyde, Enemo J, 11:11, Diamond Lil', ITB, and 61A will be making their debut performances.
Entry to the festival, which is taking place from noon to 11pm, is free but music fans are being encouraged to donate their loose change to Cords4life, the charity set up in memory of Kidderminster tot Charlie Harris-Beard who lost his battle with Leukemia in February.
Cords4life was set up by his parents Fiona Harris and Joe Beard to raise awareness of umbilical cord donations.
Loaded festival organiser Carl Wilkes said: “I was close to Charlie’s dad and I’ve done a lot of work with them. It’ll be nice if we could raise as much as last year.
“This year we’re more focused on the music. It’s a rock festival. Last year was a nightmare with two stages as there is only two of us organising it. This year we’re just making the main stage better.
“I love the festival, it’s fantastic. It’s got bigger and better every year and now we’ve just got to rely on the weather.”
