The abundance of talent in north Derbyshire is apparent after TWO local groups made it into the final ten of a national battle of the bands contest.

Both The Idle Hands and The Amber Herd have reached the final 10 shortlisted to play at this year’s High Voltage Festival in London’s Victoria Park on July 24.

The winning act will share the bill with the likes of Judas Preist, Jethro Tull and Dream Theater - and both Derbyshire groups have appealed for Number Two readers to help them clinch top spot.
