THIS Sunday's Parrotfest at the Apple and Parrot on Torquay harbourside will be a Spartan affair.

But don't be fooled — there's no stinting on the music. It's just a great excuse to get dressed up in togas and the like

The highly successful Parrotfest format continues with 12 bands, 12 hours of live music and six DJs, showcasing some of the very best of local talent.

Parrotfest first timers Hell Bent On Heaven (pictured) are an all-girl rock band who cite Led Zeppelin, Airborne and Black Stone Cherry as their musical influences.

Meanwhile stepping out of the shadows from supporting Metronomy are These Reigning Days, a three-piece band with members from Torquay and Teignmouth.

Another debut for the music-festival-in-a-pub are Moriaty, a dirty blues duo who formed at T in the Park in 2010. Also on the bill are The Quincies, with their distinctive garage indie style music.

And no Parrotfest would be complete without regulars Amy and Mitch, Owen Penrice and the Dantes, a popular accoustic duo who perform covers and originals.

The event starts at 1pm with Chris Davis in the opening slot with the event. The Reverend, alias Parrotfest supremo Mat Jarratt, brings the proceedings to a close between 1am and 3am with some cool sounds for night birds.
