Rock on the Lough Reloaded

The Skylite at Number 7 Duke Street hosts Rock on the Lough Reloaded with a celebration of rock music by some fantastic local musicians and bands.

Rock on the Lough in the INF days!

Rock on The Lough in the INF in days gone by was a mecca for rock music fans in the area.

Crowds descended from far and wide on Saturdays safe in the knowledge they would be in for a rock music treat.

Music acts from the Jim Armstrong Band to Big Generator, Fred’s Flying Circus to Wayward Son graced the stage.

Rock the Lough Reloaded tips the hat to the glorious INF days and brings back rock music to it’s natural home in Warrenpoint.

We have no doubt that the Skylite will reload the rock in style!!!

For all the Newry based fans of rock there is a return bus from Newry for £10 which includes entry to the gig!

The headliners of the show, Backlash/Wayward Son, are reuniting to give us an earful of classic rock by some of the finest local guitarists.

Check out the video to see what you can expect!
