As well as music and art, this year’s event will include a literary strand, featuring books about music, with the preview of a new work about The Beatles, featuring never seen before photos from the first years of Beatlemania.

The Woodbridge Art and Music Festival takes place over the weekend of August 8 and 9 with acts ranging from festival headliners to cult club DJs, pioneering electronic acts from the 1960s, inspirational hip hop artists, visual artists, disco dons, guitar icons, psychedelic rockers, and talks by authors.
Ben Osborne, event organiser and founder of music and art collective Noise of Art, said: “The festival will be holding its debut literary strand on the Sunday of this year’s festival weekend.

“The literary strand will feature books about music, including a yet-to-be-released special edition book of new Beatles photographs, and the biographies of Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks by Zoe Howe, and Peter Gabriel by Daryl Easlea, plus a book at bedtime session for younger festival-goers between 4.30pm and 6pm.
“Taken between 1962 and 1964, the Beatles photographs are part of a never-seen-before collection that was originally shot for the Beatles Monthly magazine.
“The photos, which are published for the first time in a limited edition cased hardback book, capture the Beatles in their private moments.
“The book called Looking Through You is edited by Chris Charlesworth, a friend of John Lennon’s, who will give a talk on how the photographs were discovered, as well as recalling his own experiences with John and Yoko.”

Music sessions will take place from 2pm to 8pm in Elmhurst Park and at various venues around the town.
