The Frank Carducci Band are to headline the one day Masquerade Festival at The Bedford in Balham, South London on December 11. Also appearing are The Gift, Red Bazar, Habu, Black Tunes and the Happy Graveyard Orchestra.
The festival is the brainchild of Mike Morton and David Lloyd from The Gift. It’s the successor to the four-day Resonance Festival, which was held at The Bedford in 2014.
Says Morton: “Resonance was very ambitious, and we are proud of what we achieved. But the logistics were unwieldy, to say the least. Lessons were learned. And a one day, one stage set up will be much more manageable. bookish and serious.
“All my favourite acts, from Genesis to Queen, with Alex Harvey in between, put on a hell of a show. That’s what we’ll all be doing. Bringing to Balham a little bit of Christmas, some steampunk and a touch of the Venetian. We are also asking the audience to come in fancy dress and masks!”
Doors will open at 12.30pm, with bands onstage from 1-10.30pm. Tickets for Masquerade are priced at £15 and are available here (opens in new tab). Please note there will be a booking fee of £1.50 per ticket.
