Brighthelmstone Promotions has announced their annual Mid-Sussex Music and Ale Festival in Hassocks just outside Brighton. Less than a month away, the three-day festival will take place over the August Bank Holiday. Headliners include Andrew Combs, Whitney Rose, Robert Vincent Band, and Peter Bruntnell, who played at the inaugural event. Focussing on Americana, the event will welcome Treetop Flyers, Native Harrow, Diana Jones, Ags Connelly, The Dreaming Spires, Dan Russell, Anya Louise, and many others from both sides of the Atlantic. The festival began in Hove as “Palmfest” ten years ago.
