STAND By as Great Yarmouth racecourse will rock to the music of The Who, Led Zeppelin and Thin Lizzy during the summer.
An all-day major outdoor performance of tribute acts on July 26 will help raise money to fund a festival showcasing local music groups and will feature national and internationally renowned tribute acts.
The Friends Tribute Festival has been organised by Eastern Music Underground (EMU).
Organiser Chris Anson, who has organised the annual Yarmouth Town Centre Music Festivals, said: “We want to make this day a success as we are trying to raise funds for the 2009 Town Centre Music Festival, TCMF4.”
This year's TCMF3 runs from July 12 to 20 in the Market Place and has been funded, but next year's is another matter - hence the Friends Tribute Festival.
Acts lined up for the 11am to 11pm racecourse event are Led Zep Too, Dizzy Lizzy, Heartbreaker, Aladdinsane, Pure Cult and Who's Renown.
