James Walsh performs as part of Hard Rock Cafe Festival 2020: Live music is back
Hard Rock International is introducing an innovative way to bring back the summertime music feel, with the first-ever Hard Rock Cafe Festival 2020, taking place at Hard Rock Cafe London and Hard Rock Cafe Piccadilly Circus until Friday 25th September 2020.
For guests dining in, the Hard Rock Cafe Festival 2020 will feature a host of up-and-coming stars taking to the stages once a week during the festival season, as well as a limited-time food and cocktail menus.
On Thursday 17th September, Joe Slater – the kid from Croxteth – delivered a smooth, saturating blend of rock, blues and soul followed by Starsailor frontman James Walsh, taking to the stage with his perfect pitch and acoustic guitar at the European flagship Hard Rock Cafe in Piccadilly Circus.
Live and unplugged tunes were accompanied by a limited-time Festival 2020 menu featuring small-plate offerings. Guests can select either two or three items from a festival-inspired menu, which includes new items as well as fun twists on beloved Hard Rock classics. Items on the Festival 2020 menu include Let’s Get Twisted Mac & Cheese Fries, Honey Soy Wings, Southwest Tacos, All-American Sliders and other tasty selections.
Cocktail specials are served all day long to keep the happy hour going, with options including the Fresh Agave Margarita, Blueberry Cosmo Cocktail, Dark & Stormy and more. Guests that purchase from the Festival 2020 menu will receive a limited-edition branded festival wristband while supplies last.
The Safe + Sound program implemented at Hard Rock Cafe will ensure guests can enjoy their in-person festival experience in a safe and sanitary environment. Hard Rock International partnered with world-renowned public health and safety organisations like EcoSure, an Ecolab Division and NSF International, formerly known as the National Sanitation Foundation, to ensure its properties are SAFE + SOUND, meeting the highest standards of safety, sanitation, food handling and employee training. The enhanced SAFE + SOUND safety protocol includes, but is not limited to procedures such as a state-of-the-art, non-intrusive thermal temperature screening process before entering, social distancing measures and protective mask requirements for all team members.
