Speaking on the return of the event and the line up, Marshall Commercial Director, Alex Coombes said: “Marshall Live is the embodiment of what Marshall stands for – putting live music first. From a musicians perspective we are able to give grassroot bands an opportunity to play an arena early in their career, and even give unsigned bands the chance to perform alongside headline acts. From a fan perspective, they are able to discover a full days worth of new bands for £30. In addition, we are also championing Milton Keynes as an up and coming music location. We love the line-up, it might just be the best out there for an all-dayer; but we also learnt a lot from last year, so we’ve not been afraid to switch a few things up. We’re putting a lot of emphasis on audience engagement for this year, we want Marshall Live to inspire the next generation of music lovers.”
