AFORWARD-THINKING music festival featuring some of the biggest names in drum and bass, grime, garage and urban music is being held at Warwick Racecourse next month. The first ever Let Loose Festival is set to take place on Saturday, September 10 and will feature seven live bands as well as DJs and music producers performing across five stages.

Doors open at midday and the event will see both local talent and artists from further afield take to the stage, including two BBC Radio 1Xtra residents, drum and bass legend DJ Hazard and grime heavyweight P Money.

There will also be street food vendors serving up popular dishes from around the world.

Jake Massey, one of the organisers behind Let Loose Festival, said: "We wanted to bring something to the area for the younger generation as there is a real gap in the market for a forward thinking, forward sounding music festival in Warwick.

"We have ambitious plans to not only bring the best artists to the event but to also provide a platform for the local music community to showcase their talents. "There will be a real mix of music with seven live bands and around 40 DJs and electronic music producers.

"Warwick racecourse is an excellent venue for a music festival and we have been keen to utilise the interesting spaces and infrastructure found at the racecourse. "We are already seeing a lot of interest and have provided some of the residents in the immediate area with free tickets. We are committed to growing the event over the next few years and hope to make it an annual fixture."

The event is open to those aged 16 and above. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.

Last entry is at 6pm, with the festival coming to a close at 9.30pm. Tickets are priced at PS25.
