The new festival joins London (26th – 27th May) and Edinburgh (14th – 15th July) in the series which sees thousands of sportsmen and women compete in Rugby 7s, 10s, Touch rugby and netball tournaments at all levels.
Since the first event in 2010 RugbyRocks has also played host to bands such as Feeder, The Pigeon Detectives, The Parlotones and Just Jack. This year, Zane Lowe headlines the music in London with support from DJ superstars Benji Boko and Goldierocks among others. There will also be music performances from the world of rugby, including Bath’s Olly Barkley and London Irish due Shontayne Hape and Alex Corbisiero.
PUMA will use the festivals to continue to bring to life its PUMA Social campaign which pays tribute to the ‘After-Hours Athlete’. Each RugbyRocks festival will host its own chill out area where fans will be able to relax in the ‘PUMA Social’ where they can enjoy DJ sets and rub shoulders with leading England International rugby stars. The lounge will feature bar games, such as table football and table tennis.
