Friday Night Event


To complete our already incredible line up for the MMH Friday Night Party, we proudly welcome the return of Wayward Sons! After playing a fantastic set in 2019 and wowing the Stonedead crowd, we are beyond excited to have them headline our special 2021 event, with their powerful mix of heavy rocking guitars and very catchy riffs. It’ll be the perfect way to kick off what’s set to be a pretty special weekend!

Cats in Space are guaranteed to bring their unique sound to the Friday night transporting you back to the heady days of 70’s classic rock. Loud guitars, huge drums, pianos, soaring vocals and memorable choruses.

STOP STOP! Are going to raise a lot of smiles with their fun loving, party driven hard rocking antics. A set of catchy hooks, singalong choruses and crazy antics on & off stage.  A jaw dropping experience that will get heads nodding and beers aloft in total approval.

One of the hottest, freshest, all female rock bands on the scene – The Hot Damn – will descend on Stonedead for the Friday Night Rock Party and truly kick things off in style (and with plenty of attitude!). An amalgamation of Tequila Mockingbyrd and The Amorettes, we are excited to welcome back some familiar faces with some new rocking music.
