The Elephant Hotel, Saint Helens
Elephant Ln, Saint Helens WA9 5QW, UK
Sandwiched between Liverpool and Manchester, Elefest is a lively little music festival on the grounds of The Elephant Hotel, Saint Helens.
The festival promotes a DIY philosophy and attracts some of the top upcoming talent from the North West each year. The main stage is situated inside an old barn that was used by travelers in the early 1900's. This barn gives off a massive cavernous sound and fronts the 300 or so people that turn out to party each year.
Now in it's third year, this festival is aiming even higher and has put together a lineup to boast.
Taking to the main stage at around 7.15pm are headliners The Ultimate Stone Roses. These guys have traveled the length and breadth of the country playing sell out shows and pleasing festival goers for years on end. A truly authentic tribute to The Stone Roses, these Manc lads know how to put on a show. Expect fisher hats, pints in the air and a harmonious eruption of "SENT TO ME FROM HEAVEN, SALLY CINNAMON, YOU'RE MY WORLD!"
Preceding the headline act are the UK's No.1 Tribute to Oasis, Oaces. Haling from Wigan but with the proper swagger that you'd expect from an Oasis show. If you're like us and cried when Oasis broke up then make sure not to miss another mega authentic tribute. Playing all the hits and perfecting everything from Liam's strait jacket stance to the little anecodotes that we all have come to love, you'll feel like you're watching the real thing.
Hitting the stage just after 4.00pm is a tribute the real pioneers of Hard Rock, AC/BC! Never before have we heard someone recreate the Ozrockers sound so closely before and just had to get them on the show. Seriously, have you ever heard anyone other than Brian Johnson pull off the 'Back in Black' vocals. Expect air guitars galore as their very own Angus shreds his SG in signature schoolboy uniform.
As usual, Elefest will be hosting some of the finest upcoming bands in the area and has not one, not two, but three absolute belters in store.
First up are The JJohn's. In our opinion this best thing to come out of Liverpool since Stevie G slipped and lost the Premier League Title. With a electric Merseybeat sound and gorgeous harmonies, they are one to watch.
Next up are Sapho. One of St. Helens most popular young acts. Watching these lads develop over the years has been a pleasure. They continuously pack out shows in the area and bring an energetic set of Indie Anthems.
On stage at around 3pm will be Messiahs. Already gaining airplay on US and UK radio these lads display a songsmanship and attitude that hasn't been seen since the heyday of 90's Britpop.
Clearly, we're treating you a little bit too much but wait, there's more...
Time to forget the beach bod! Hailing from the snowy peaks of North Wales, we have delicious gourmet burgers and fries oozing in Bacon, Cheese and BEEFY BEEFINESS. Streetcafe will be pitching up right near the entrance all day long. That's Breakfast, lunch and tea sorted.
For drinks we have indoor and outdoor bars serving everything you could possibly want. Cocktails include Fosters and Lemonade. Beers and Ciders from £2.50.
Saturday 7th July. Gates open at 12pm with music finishing around 8.30pm.
