Total Bike FM will be hosting the live music stage throughout the weekend; On Saturday there will be performances by rockabilly band Hound Dogs, Ozzy Osbourne tribute act Wizards of Oz, punk/rock covers group Bassalien, and Wrathchild, an original kick ass rock band headlining. Sunday features Broken, an original rock band, with Trucker Diablo ‘drinking beer and destroying’ as they bring the weekend to a close.

Hundreds of bikes will be on show from the UK's best motorcycle manufacturers and clubs showcasing everything from great British classics to modern day heroes, Japanese elegance to American icons.

Motorbike Clubs are invited to join in the celebrations with the organisers offering free space for clubs bringing up to ten bikes, with each owner receiving two weekend passes and camping per bike. Clubs wanting to bring over ten bikes will get the first ten free and then pay £25 per bike, again with the owners getting two free show tickets.

Hear the roar of the engine and soak up the fumes as you enjoy live action in the main arena from our special guests Broke FMX, the Animal Bike Tour and the Wall of Death as well as plenty of family fun and entertainment. And what festival would be complete without some fantastic camping and activity facilities at Billing Aquadrome so you can make it a weekend to remember!

Take part in the Custom Concours competition where the very best customised bikes will be displayed in a purpose built marque with awards for outstanding examples. Concours categories include Best in Show, Best Trike, Best Chop, Best Street fighter and Best Classic.
