Rock music greats aplenty as the mighty Giants of Rock returns to Minehead Posted on Mon 14th January 2019

Giants of Rock 2019 Preview

Giants of Rock returns to the fabulous Butlins Minehead holiday resort for another majestic outing at the end of the month (25 th – 28th January 2019).

Do take our word on this; the Giants of Rock festival is an absolutely splendid weekend delivering wonderful classic rock from the 60’s through to the present day, and all wrapped up in the excellent package that is the Butlins Holiday Resort experience. Let’s not mince words – our FFA Reviewers love this one. Take a read of the Festivals For All  Giants of Rock 2018 Review for just a hint of all the goodies on offer. Indeed ,our guys love the whole concept of these Butlins festival weekends, with some great music from a roster of internationally renowned artists playing in large, quality auditoria, coupled with a wonderful atmosphere of shared experience with thousands of other like minded folk. The audience at GOR are a splendid bunch, passionate and knowledgeable about their music, and certainly up for a good time!

Overlay all that with the strictly 21 st century experience of the excellent Butlins Resorts, with accommodation and dining packages to suit all pockets, and they make for cracking weekends. Now don’t be fooled, Butlins offers a whole host of themed weekends to cater for all tastes, but their Music Weekend events like Giants of Rock are genuine Winter Music Festivals – it’s the summer festival scene, but with extremely civilised facilities and without the mud. If you've never been to one of these bashes before, our Reviewers think you'll love it!

Artists booked to appear include Skid Row, Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy, The Sweet, Roger Chapman, Focus, Wille and the Bandits, Man, Oliver/Dawson Saxon, Martin Barre's Jethro Tull, Vega, Atomic Rooster, FM, Dare, Geordie, Cats In Space, Elliott Randall, Bon Jovi Experience, H. E. A. T, The Chris Slade Timeline, Rhino's Revenge, Bad Touch (UK), Kingdom of Madness: Classic Magnum, Brian Downey's Alive And Dangerous, Zal Cleminson's Sin Dogs, Eric Bell Band, Clearwater Creedence Revival.

Our FFA Reviewers will once again be taking in the scene at GOR19 for what looks a smashing line-up. Check for latest GOR availability  HERE.
