Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex, is apparently to host a music festival in the grounds of Windsor Great Park to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Duke Of Edinburgh’s Award scheme.
The Millets Live Life Loud Festival in aid of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
has been in the planning for two years. As well as featuring acts such as
Sugababes, Craig David and Lemar, the 50,000 capacity event will feature an
‘adventure village’ dedicated to sports such as rock climbing. All proceeds
from ticket sales will go to the Award scheme’s charity for young people.
Meanwhile, non-name acts are being offered the chance to apply for a
performance slot, with artists being asked to send in a demo to a judging
Prince Edward says: “It is very exciting for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award’s
50th Anniversary to be hosting what will be an incredible event in Windsor
Great Park. With the unique combination of great music and the Adventure
Village, I am sure the event will be a memorable experience. I look forward
to being there.”
Sugababes say: “It’s quite an honour to be invited by HRH Prince Edward to
perform in front of Windsor Castle. We can’t wait to meet him and thank him
ourselves as we’ve heard he’s quite cheeky.”
The festival is set to take place on 22 and 23 Jul. Day tickets are £35 and
weekend tickets are £60, and can be purchased from livelifeloud.org.
