Kennyfest has been rocking the North East since 2006 and has become a regular pilgrimage for the North Easts denim and leather crew. Unlike most small festivals, Kennyfest is focussed soley on raising money for worthy causes. Since the passing away of popular musician Kenny Brown in 2006, Kennyfest has raised close to £10,000 various causes. This year support goes to the PDSA - Vets for Pets, Macmillan Cancer Relief and St Benedicts Hospice in Sunderland.
The 2012 event features a host of top tribute bands Maiden England, Sabbatica, NE/DC, Black Rose (Thin Lizzy), Damaged Inc (Metallica), Bon Jovi Forever and Whey Aye Zed (Rush). To Compliment the better known hits of the tributes some of the hottest bands in the region will be playing including Lyxx, Fallen Mafia, Saints of Arcadia, Black Magic, Vendetta, Dethrone Your Idol and League of Souls. To add a bit of sweat and beer to proceedings Pub rockers the Dirty South and Sleaze Sisters shore up the bill.
