Rye Goes Pop 2004

The line-up has been announced for this year’s Rye Goes Pop event to be held on the town Salts on Saturday August 7th. Organisers are hoping that Michelle Gayle will be included on the bill. Michelle is still perhaps better known for her old EastEnders character Hattie, or even for her earlier appearances on Grange Hill, but she is now recognised as an established UK R&B artist.pop

Also appearing in the Budgen’s sponsored event will be Skott Francis who will be promoting his new album, Sounds of Pleasure, local three piece girl band Untouched, who released their debut single last year, as well as a host of other up and coming artistes. The free event also includes tributes to Kylie Minogue and Anastasia.

Terry Avann, of organisers Style Promotions, is hoping that this year’s line-up will prove just as popular as the inaugural Rye Goes Pop, which attracted almost 2,000 people to the Salts “It should be a superb day of music and entertainment for all the family. The artists who we expect to appear are all up and coming acts, which will be showcasing their material. The day will be suitable for children of all ages and is in the middle of the school holidays, so Mum and Dad can come along and have a great day out with the kids. To help the day go smoothly and safely, the Salts will be an alcohol-free environment too.”

Rye Goes Pop will be held on the Town salts on Saturday August 7th. The event gets under way at 4.00pm and runs through until around 10.00 pm. In addition to music, food and drink there will be a giant funfair operating throughout the evening. No tickets are required, but further information can be obtained from Style Promotions on 01424 423123.
