Floors Castle at the Scottish Borders is bringing back its seasonal Roxburghe Rocks music festival this summer, where melophiles can indulge in the music of some of the world’s greatest performers. Guests of all ages can delight themselves with the open-air vibes with the well-loved tunes from Queen, Fleetwood Mac, Arctic Monkeys and Oasis.
Festival goers can immerse themselves in the songs that have captivated generations with the enchanting castle as the backdrop to a day of music appreciation, food, drink and fun with your loved ones. The unique event is expected to take place on Saturday, August 5, and starts at 1pm, running to approximately 9pm.
Roxburghe Rocks is organised by Floors Castle in association with 21st Century Events at Chapterhouse Theatre Company, the festival features a number of tribute bands live on the grounds of one of the UK’s most beautiful castles and countryside views. Now that’s what we call a backdrop!
21st Century Queen will perform many of Queen’s best-known jams, including We Will Rock You, Radio Ga Ga and Bohemian Rhapsody. Mardy Bums, the Arctic Monkeys tribute act, will shake the grounds with hits such as Do I Wanna Know? 505, I Wanna Be Yours and I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor. Definitely, Oasis embody 90s Britpop with Liam and Noel Gallagher’s music from Don’t Look Back In Anger to Champagne Supernova and Wonderwall. And UK Fleetwood Mac will bring to life Fleetwood Mac’s greatest hits like Dreams, Everywhere, The Chain and Go Your Own Way.
Jaap Röell, MD for the Roxburghe Estates said: “We are thrilled to be able to bring this fantastic open-air festival back to Floors. Last year was an enormous success when we all rocked to the music of Abba, Queen and Elton John. This year, Queen’s music is back once more but with another galaxy of stellar tribute bands. The whole event is just getting bigger and better and we can’t wait to celebrate summer again.”
