MORE than 3000 people are expected to descend on an alternative VW show.

Dubs in the Middle, which takes place at Ashdown Farm in Evesham will this year have 20 musical acts including John James Newman from The Voice along with DJ's and an open mic and jamming session.

Natalie Clement, co-organiser, said: "It is an honour to put on such a well supported event full of the people I care so much about.

"The VW scene is like a big family, always coming together to have a good time, support one another when it's needed and most importantly to raise money for charity.

"It would be nice for the local community to come and enjoy the show too, seeing what the dub-scene is all about and you never know - may even tempt you into a VW yourself.

"Dubs in the Middle is more than just a hobby its a way of life and I am 100 percent dedicated to putting on what I think will be an awesome show with entertainment to suit every age."

The event is in its 40th year and it will also feature VWs on display and an auto jumble.

The festival also raises money for charities with £9,000 donated so far to local causes, this year's charity Evesham Sea Cadets will be at the show.

The weekend fun also includes four bars, the London Bus Bas and a food quarter.

The entertainment on offer also includes Foo Fighters tribute band Food Fighterz, a band and burlesque show, Chaser a covers band and The Death do us Part danger show.

The show takes place from Friday May 26 until Monday May 29.

A number of workshops will also take place over the weekend from dance to graffiti.
