Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons are headlining this weekend’s Just Push Play festival in Bury St Edmunds as the annual classic-rock festival comes around again.

The former Motorhead man and pals are at the top of a bill on Saturday, July 30, that includes The Howling Tides, Massive, Skam and Empyre.

Originally planned as a one-off event in 2015 by organiser Lee Graham to raise some cash for the local hospice in memory of his late father, Just Push Play has become a fixture on the music calendar and moved to The Apex four years ago.

Over the years, acts such as Bad Touch, Those Damn Crows, Massive Wagons, Gorilla Riot and Piston have played the one-day festival, and nearly £25,000 has been raised for St Nicholas Hospice Care.

This year’s line-up is completed by These Wicked Rivers, The Karma Effect, Just A Ride, Mike Ross and Gallows Circus.

The event gets under way at noon. Click here for tickets.
