MALVERN will be transformed by a free festival for the third year and musicians can apply to get involved.

More than 100 bands and performers will play across 20 venues dotted around the town when Malvern Rocks runs from Friday to Sunday, July 25-27.

Musicians, groups, solo artists and singers from all genres who want to play at the festival can fill in a performers application form by Monday, April 21 and the line-up will be confirmed by Monday, May 19.

The not-for-profit event is run by volunteers and last year's festival featured gigs from the likes of Lisbee Stainton and television chef Loyd Grossman's band the New Forbidden alongside a wide selection of local and regional acts.
