Festival Organiser Ellen Cole says: “We are thrilled and delighted with the sheer amount of musicians which have applied for this year’s festival. When the festival was originally set up we only had 22 musicians and bands apply and are now receiving just under 400 applications which is incredibly overwhelming.
“We have a high quality line-up for the festival, where not one act is the same as the other. I am very pleased with what the festival has achieved and during the festival we’ll be sharing some very special news about next year’s festival, which we’re very excited about sharing with everyone.”
The festival will take place in the Music Marquee on Parliament Street from 5-9pm and admission is free.
Ellen is also looking for some volunteers to help run the music festival as well as a group of Film Makers and Photographers, if you are interested in volunteering then please contact her at: [email protected]
