The event is being staged jointly by the Rugby Club, Ballymoney Football Youth Academy and Ballymoney Hockey Club and is the first time all three clubs have come together in such a big fundraising effort.

The line-up features Status Quo tribute band The Matchstickmen, local bands Picture the Sound and the Groove Robbers, Snow Patrol tribute band So Patrol and the headliners are the popular Queen tribute band Flash Harry, whose impressive sets have been entertaining crowds for years.

Stephen Clements from the Q Radio breakfast show will also be on hand throughout the day to act as our compere and entertain the masses between the bands.

The bands start at 3.30pm and run to 11pm, but with gates opening at 1.30 pm and Q Radio coming along to warm things up with an outside broadcast from 2pm be sure to get down early to enjoy the whole day.

Tickets are priced at £20 and are on sale NOW from the festival website www.partyonthepitch.ie, and will be on sale from our main box office outlet Biesty’s Centra from Monday 21st March.
