Music lovers are being encouraged to get their party gear on and head to Lodmoor Country Park this summer.

The headline acts have been revealed for Party in The Park with organisers promising it will be 'bigger and better' than ever before.

There are only five weeks to go before community radio station AIR 107.2 takes over the park on Sunday, August 6, for their biggest party of the year.

Running from 12noon until 7pm, there will be a host of family-friendly activities including a food court, smoothie bar, competitions, giveaways and games. There will also be craft stalls at the free to enter event, including plaster mould painting, handmade jewellery, a vintage boutique and face painting.

This will all be to a backdrop of an array of music from talented local musicians including, Milk and Two, Blazin' Strings, Drive by Jammin', Cuba Libre, Peacock Suit, Toxic Fish and Under the Carousel, as well as Pop Club, Chris Bonney and Sister Fitness Clubbercise.

Head of Events at AIR 107.2, Venetia Randall, said it would be a great family day out.

She said: “Every year we are getting bigger and better, and this is our way of saying thank you to the community and our show sponsors for enabling us to keep the station running.

“This year we are sponsored by New Look and Dream Cottages Estates and without their support we would be unable to run this event.”

She added: “All the Air crew work very hard on the day and their efforts make me very proud to be head of events.

“I personally love those moments when I can see all our visitors singing, dancing and having a great time - for me that makes the six months of hard work worth the effort."

Jen Rodd from the events team said: "I'm really excited that we are able to bring Party in the Park back this summer and we can't wait to see and meet everyone."

Band Cuba Libre said they were excited to be playing the event and bringing their fusion of dub, hip-hop and funk to the stage.

Morgan Lily from the band said: “It’s a great opportunity for us to play to people who wouldn’t get to see us normally.”

She added: “It’s a fun day. I went last year and had a wicked time. It’s a nice location too. It’s like a huge festival.”

Station manager, Derek Greenacre, said the event would be “probably one of the best free days out in Weymouth,” with lots of entertainment for all ages.

He thanked all the sponsors and bands for their support.
