Whitehaven Festival: The Best Of The 70s: The Real Thing + Odyssey + The Three Degrees + Les McKeown's Legendary Bay City Rollers + Showaddywaddy + Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel
This promises to be one of the best nights ever with three and a half hours of nostalgic dancing music and is a cracking way to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee in style.
The UK's own disco pioneers The Real Thing still whip up the crowds from the minute they hit the stage. Eddie, Chris and Dave give their all to such favourites as You To Me Are Everything, Can't Get By Without You, Whenever You Want My Love and Can You Feel The Force.

Odyssey's fusion of seventies disco and Caribbean rhythms, makes them as popular today as they were in the days of their original success. During the early eighties, Odyssey took disco to another level, infusing it with worldly rhythms and stylish beats. Their hits include classics such as Use It Up And Wear It Out, Inside Out and Going Back To My Roots.

Bye Bye Baby was their first UK No. 1 in May 1975 followed by Give A Little Love in July. Their first album, Rollin', was the first debut album to top the charts.

70s popsters recreating the music of the 50s.

Dave Bartram recently stood down as lead singer but continues to manage the band, with founding members Romeo Challenger and Rod Deas plus Paul Dixon. New members are Andy Pelos on lead vocals, Rob Hewins (drums/guitars/vocals) and Dean Loach (keyboards/vocals).
