And the next act for Burr Fest 2020 is…

by Andy Holloway - 2nd September 2019

The next act joining us for 2020 will be our very good friends;


Airforce began in 1987 with Chop Pitman (Guitar), Tony Hatton (Bass), Doug Sampson (Drums) and Doug’s elder brother Sam Sampson (ex-Sam Apple Pie) on vocals.

Following the release of their career-retrospective album “Judgement Day”, in 2016, Tony and Doug returned to the fold, after a 20 year absence; with Dilian Arnaudov taking over vocal duties.

This new line-up made their live debut in April 2017 and ended up headlining the inaugural Burr Fest the same year.

With this line-up, they recorded 2 EP’s; volumes 1 & 2 of “The Black Box Recordings”, which proved extremely popular, and saw the band rise in popularity, taking in shows across the UK, Europe, and the USA.

Unfortunately, Dilian departed Airforce in late 2018, eventually being replaced by Flávio Lino

Having taken in shows around the UK, across Europe, and a full USA tour during 2019, the band are set to release a new album soon, which given recent live performances, promises to be a belter!

With a renewed energy, and fantastic new material, Airforce are indeed, FLYING HIGH right now!
