The Hanwell Hootie Is Heading This Way
London's biggest free one day music festival
All eyes and ears will be on Hanwell very soon - because it's nearly time for the Hanwell Hootie.
Four years ago Andy McRobbie and a group of friends decided that Hanwell should commemorate Jim Marshall OBE who set up his company Marshall Amplification in townl in 1962 and went on to become “The Father of Loud”.
The first year of the Hootie, 2013, saw 13 bands in 3 venues and it has grown year-on-year so that 2015 saw 65 bands in 12 venues.
This year will be the biggest yet with over 80 bands, 14 venues and around 10,000-12,000 expected to attend.
This year will introduce Alice's Wonderbands Stage. This area will be dedicated to the memory of murdered teenager Alice Gross and in support of Alice's Youth Music Memorial Fund.
Alice's Family have said:
The Hootie takes place on Saturday 2nd April and there will be free buses from Ealing and Brentford stations.
