RECORD STORE DAY & Castle Road Market 2 day celebration 2016 – Artist Announcement *With Stage Times*

We are humbled, Proud, Excited, Delighted, Over Excited ( ____ insert superlative)… to announce the artists and bands that are supporting us for this years mighty two day celebration of Records and Music, known as – Record Store Day 2016!

A mixture of super massive acts, and introductions to supreme new acts – all with links to the locality, just the way it should be on this special day.

Yep, this is a free event to attend – and held down the historic Castle Road, which will be closed for the two day celebration. The bands will appear on our outside stage – unless it rains, and we’ll think of something else…

Oh my – what a line up!

Castle Road Market

Castle Road in Southsea is delighted to announce its first event in 2016. As in the past we will close the South end of Castle Road for a street market to show off the great businesses that are situated in the road, with help from a number of local traders selling everything from antiques and vintage clothing to street food and records.

As well as 40+ independent traders there will be a stage with live music to celebrate 2016’s national Record Store Day. Not only will there be performances from local musical talent, but a number of larger acts will also join us in the road to help with the weekend’s entertainment offering.#RSD2016

Full list of traders to appear here soon:)
