A closely-fought semi-final resulted in success for Crown the Mushroom, Mind the Gap and The Lucettas.

All three acts will perform at Saturday’s Roundhouse Music Festival in Central Park which celebrates the rich musical history of the Roundhouse pub.

Tribute acts to some of the rock heroes who performed at the Dagenham pub – including Status Quo, Pink Floyd and The Who – will be gracing the stage.

The Roundhouse Musical Festival takes place from 1pm to 10pm this Saturday, June 6, with the Battle of the Bands final scheduled for 1pm to 2.30pm.
