Strummer Of Love Festival this August

It's all in honour of the late Clash legend.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 10 Apr 2012

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 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.
