PREVIEW: Yorfest, Knavesmire, York – 26th September 2015

‘Yorkshire bands, for Yorkshire people, in a Yorkshire venue’ is the motto for this new one-day music festival.

With headliners Pigeon Detectives ending the evening and supported by the likes of Sunshine Underground, Apollo Junction and The Sherlocks, it will be a case of showcasing just some of the best Yorkshire music scene in current times.

Now the music itself starts at 1.00pm with the infectious indie music of The Black Lagoons. We know the talents of the previously mentioned acts, however there is a range of different artists and bands gracing the Knavesmire throughout the day.

So, any other personal recommendations? Looking at the line-up, Alvarez Kings and Stop Drop Robot are definitely worth a listen. Alvarez Kings are undeniably catchy to listen to. If you’re not dancing by the end of the set, then… Well it’s simple, you will be dancing by the end of the set. Stop Drop Robot literally throw everything into their music. Electro/Synth Rock with raw and gritty vocals? I’m not really sure I can describe them. I just know that they will  definitely make you listen.

With The historic city of York as the backdrop, and with predicted weather of a balmy September day, a great day of music celebrating God’s own country.
