UNISONzone at GuilFest

Informed debate and music can hand in hand make a change,
but only if we can be that change we want to see’.

This year, the UNISONzone will be hosting the ever popular Unsung Heroes Live Sessions – allowing festival-goers to play in the UNISONzone - and boasts a programme packed full of activities. 

Expect to see some special guest performances from Eric Faulkner (Bay City Rollers - Sunday) NECK, Night Of Treason, Wobbly Squadron, The Infidels, The Rhizomes, The Fabulous Fezheads (Sat & Sun), and many others across the weekend, as well as live discussions.

Check out the UNISONzone each day for further details, and special announcements.

To grab YOUR 15 / 20+ minutes of fame you will need to bring your talent and your instruments of choice -please note that a standard drum kit, backline and pa will be provided. If you would like to perform in the Unsung Heroes Live Sessions, please contact the stage manager on the day and they will let you know what session times are available. The Unsung Heroes Live Sessions are open to all GuilFest visitors – but you are advised to get in quick as places will be limited!
