The event is being organised by Hertford Music Festival's Kev Saunders and features punk cover band The Real McKoys, post-punk goth outfit The Suicide Tapes, Clash tribute act The Trash, and ska band The Trojan Horses.

Kev Saunders explained: "Our friend Steve Hunt, sound engineer, PA system provider and DJ on whom we’ve relied since the start of the Musical Mystery Tour, was diagnosed early this year with terminal cancer). And since Steve’s getting a great deal of support from them, the least we can do as his mates is do our little bit to support them."
