Speaking of the NWOCR – Volume 1 album, New Wave Of Classic Rock said “We’ve been looking into the possibility of putting together a NWOCR compilation CD since last year and thought that right now would be absolutely perfect timing to release the definitive version of a set of tracks from bands who together define the genre”, explains Richard Brindley (NWOCR). “With the help of all of the fans of all the bands, and the ever-growing membership of the NWOCR Facebook Group, we want to get this CD high up into the UK compilation chart and raise the profile of the movement and the bands to a massively wider audience.

Anchor Lane Announced for Re-scheduled Planet RockStock 2021

Planet Rockstock 2020 Update:

Planet Rock’s annual event, Planet Rockstock which is held in Trecco Bay has been moved to 2021 due to the current situation of Covid 19.

We had hoped that we would be able to go ahead with this year’s sell out event when it was first announced back in April, however it is not possible.  With the health and safety of all involved of paramount importance, from the audience, bands, crew, staff and the legal restrictions on capacity, it is not possible for us to put on the event safely and to a level which would be expected by all.

The new dates for Rockstock 2021 are the 3 – 5th Dec 2021. With tours and schedules working a long way in advance, we are pleased to announce that most of the line-up has remained unchanged.

Your current booking will still be valid for next year at the same level (i.e. Gold, Silver & Bronze) and for the same number of people.  If you require a refund, then please do so by the 9th November 2020 to make your claim.

To get a face value refund, please email customerservices@gigantic.com and quote the order reference number.  If you have any other questions, please email rockstock@planetrock.com

We have a few more bands to be announced, which we will do over the coming months.

We hope you all keep well and safe, and we look forward to seeing you in 2021.
