Organisers of Worcester Music Festival have started to reveal the extensive line-up of artists who will be playing this year’s event in the heart of Worcester’s city centre from 15th – 17th September.
The festival has been running since 2008 and is organised entirely by volunteers looking to give back to their local community. So far, the event has raised tens of thousands of pounds for different causes, and this year, the festival will be raising money and awareness for The Myriad Centre, a local cause which provides specialist care for young people with serious disabilities.
It’s an event that has seen thousands of acts from near and far flock to the city to perform original music in dozens of venues across the city centre. And, with workshops for all ages and live performances in over 20 venues in Worcester city centre, there’s sure to be something for everyone over the weekend.
This year, the festival will see both new faces and old favourites perform in the faithful city. Spanning multiple genres, ages and more, just a few of the confirmed names for this year’s event include: post punk female-fronted outfit Bridget, Bristolian hard rockers The St Pierre Snake Invasion, Mt. Yonder who have recently donned the stage of this year’s Arctangent Festival, Jesse River Dylan Merry who delivers punk folk stompers, Jess Silk who is an ever popular face on the festival circuit, Exit Child will be performing fresh off the back of their UK tour, and even City Councillor Tor Pingree will be performing.
The festival is fast approaching, and excitement is certainly building because, as Nigel Clark from Dodgy says: “This is a great festival with an amazing number of artists giving up their time for free. It’s a chance to spend the weekend exploring a wide range of music while taking in the many splendours of the city.”
The full line-up can be found via the website, www.worcestermusicfestival.co.uk, and more names continue to be added to the bill each week. Keep up to date with the announcements on Facebook (@worcestermusicfestival), Instagram and Twitter (@worcsmusicfest).
The festival is also looking for volunteers to join the team over the festival weekend. There are a variety of ways people get involved, with roles including venue stewards, charity collectors, sound engineers, photographers and stage managers. It’s a great way to give back to your local community while enjoying plenty of incredible live music – get in touch via https://www.worcestermusicfestival.co.uk/contact-us/applications/
