Established and emerging musicians from York will be returning to Parliament Square for York’s Little Festival of Live Music.
A total of 30 acts, who were chosen from a pool of close to 800 applicants, will be performing between Friday 23rd September and Saturday 1st October.
The festival has run every year since 2013, which is when it was created with less than three weeks’ notice. This year, it has made the finals for Yorkshire’s Outstanding New Festival Of The Year in the Yorkshire Gig Guide Awards.
Festival director Ellen Cole said: “We have a wide range of musical genres on offer at this year’s festival, including folk, country, Americana, surf rock, indie, pop, acoustic plus much more. We always aim to offer our audiences a great musical experience and enjoy introducing them to acts that they may or may not have seen before.
“I love being part of the festival because we can bring so many people together to enjoy great music in a warm and welcoming environment. Furthermore, our venue is also fully accessible to give those with mobility problems peace of mind. It is great to see a free entry music festival like ours do so much for the York community, which is why we bring it back year after year.”
Among the acts making up the line-up are Americana folk group King Courgette, acoustic performer David Ward Maclean, alternative R’n’B singer Kymberley Kennedy, Flora Greysteel and the well-loved folk and country artist Boss Caine.
The long-running surf-rock band Surf Sluts will also be playing the final set of the festival and their final show as a band before they split up.
York’s Little Live Music Festival is running in association with York Food And Drink Festival. Music will start daily at 5pm and end at approximately 9pm.
