It's all in honour of the late Clash legend.
Team Hot Press knows where it’s going to be between August 17 and 19, which is at the one-off Strummer Of Love festival in honour of legendary Clash mainman Joe. Taking place at a secret location in his beloved Somerset – there’s going to be a lot of scrumpy consumed around the campfire! – the 5,000-capacity event will mark the 10th anniversary of his death with contributions from musical friends and admirers. The first 1,001 tickets are on sale now from [link]www.strummeroflove.com[/link] and in a nod to his pre-punk band The 101’ers cost £101. There will be two stages – one outdoors and one in a giant marquee.
