On the surface, Macmillan Fest, taking place in Nottingham on the 3rd September, looks like any other UK music festival.

However, there is one crucial difference.

Almost seventy rock bands, both established and emerging, will be playing on seven stages in three of the city’s music venues, and all for a good cause.

The proceeds will go towards raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity that helps cancer sufferers in their time of need, and also raises awareness of a horrible disease that currently affects around 2.5 million people in the UK alone.

In the last seven years, the festival has grown rapidly, and has raised an amount in the region of £200,000, a figure the organisers are confident of adding to this year.

With a stellar line-up, including SikTh, InMe (playing a special setlist chosen by fans), The Qemists and many other bands, Macmillan Fest promises to be a great day for a worthwhile cause.
