The Exit 111 Music Festival begins tonight (Friday Oct.11)) in Manchester. The classic rock n roll festival runs through Sunday night. Gates opened Thursday afternoon around 3 pm.
Headliners: Friday-Lynyrd Skynyrd, Saturday-Def Leppard, and Sunday-Guns N’ Roses. Many other great rockers will perform during the event.
Organizers have issued some advice concerning the weather: Nighttime temperatures are looking a bit chilly, so be sure to prepare yourself with proper clothing and gear! For night shows, make sure you have a good coat, warm shoes and socks, a winter hat, and some decent rain gear for possible scattered rain on Saturday. If you are camping, be sure to pack a warm sleeping bag or heavy blanket and use a sleeping pad to insulate you from the colder ground under your tent.
